Life is ever changing and there are times when we need someone who is impartial and nonjudgmental to help us through. As a licensed counselor I provide that support as well as a safe environment for individuals to express themselves freely and openly without fear of being shamed, embarrassed or criticized for their thoughts and/or feelings. I see many clients with depression and anxiety and have found Cognitive therapy has many benefits. The skill of mindfulness is one that I practice daily and, after teaching the client, encourage them to use it on a daily basis. I am now a registered hypnotherapist so I can now offer hypnosis.
For several years I have been working with individuals who suffer from gender dysphoria. For individuals who realize their inner self is not congruent with what they see in the mirror, I offer guidance, information, and resources for those wanting to make changes.
We do not have to let our past influence our current behavior. I educate clients on this and how they can change the behaviors that no longer work for them. "Yesterday's the past, tomorrow's the future, but today is a gift. That's why it's called the present" Bill Keane.
