It can be overwhelming to begin the process of therapy and takes courage to make that first contact. OFFERING VIDEO SESSIONS BECAUSE OF COVID 19. As your therapist I will engage you in becoming comfortable exploring your inner self and learning where do you get stuck and what increases your satisfaction in life. Using a compassionate and collaborative approach, we will develop a plan that addresses your issues. You will learn to look in the mirror and not the magnifying glass to improve both your self image and relationships with others. You will also learn how to set boundaries; this reduces anger and increases self esteem.

Therapy could be a scary place at first. The process of exploring ourselves could be full of surprises - yet the connections in the therapy room create safety, empowerment and strength.It is not about how the therapist helps you, it is about how you can help yourself along with the insight, reliance and empathy that is already in you.

Life is like a book - some chapters are more emotional than others while others are more challenging to get through. Different life events or situations can cause shorter or longer chapters. And for working professionals, it seems like the everyday routine is one long overwhelming book. The need to manage so much responsibility, family, relationships, finances, professional and personal goals, and possible parenting can often be overwhelming.

They think people are making fun of them because they are born different. It can be really hard for Their own families to help. I help their families achieve common ground . Teenagers know I am real even if I tell them things they don’t want to hear. I have assisted many young adults make the difficult transition to adulthood.

Life is full of difficult choices and complicated circumstances but it is meant to be active, happy and full. Many people find themselves living a life of quiet desperation instead of the life they want. This can be because of genetic vulnerabilities, a childhood that was not sensitive to what you needed in specific developmental stages, or choices that have not supported you. Instead of trying harder at the same old solutions, I help you to shift your level of functioning and satisfaction. Research supports rewiring the neural networks in our brain to bring real and lasting change. I provide a warm, safe place to change.
