Therapy is particularly helpful with problems at work and in tranistional times (engagement, marriage,childbirth, empty nest, divorce, illness, and job loss).
I think you know what would make you happy but don't know how to make it happen. This applies to both individuals and couples. People stop themselves from moving forward because they think they can't or don't deserve to get their own needs met. I can help you overcome blocks, fears, guilt, depression, and/or self-defeating behaviors so you can free yourself to be happy and more successful. It seems daunting but, with support and direction, it is possible to improve your life. This is even true for people who are suffering from more debilitating problems such as Bipolar Disorder, OCD,or Schizoaffective Disorders.

Living a life where struggling is a regular experience is difficult to change, because no one wants to feel worse. Therapy helps by talking through what's happened, what feels wrong and what ideas you have about it, all which may be conscious or unconscious. What's unconscious surfaces naturally through our dialogue together. Most people enter therapy afraid, because they don't know where to start or are overwhelmed because so much has happened. With over 25 years of experience, I can help you navigate this terrain to relieve pain, clarify thoughts and beliefs, and to improve feelings of well-being.

In the process of answering these questions, a divorce therapist helps you work towards acceptance and forgiveness.
