"So many of us face difficulties and challenges at different points throughout our life. We may feel alone; overwhelmed. Helpless, hopeless. We may become angry with others, and even turn against ourselves. We may struggle to find meaning or purpose in our life. As we search for meaning, and seek understanding, we may lose sight of this moment, and of ourselves. Finding your anchor in the present, recognizing and finding compassion for your healing inner voice and plentiful emotional repertoire is often the first step to cultivating a new relationship with you."

I work with clients in a walk and talk setting where you can feel open to share in a less structured environment.
