"Does life feel out of control? The winds of depression, anxiety, relationship distress, emotional and physical infidelity, grief, hopelessness and/or loneliness can make us feel like we don’t have any control over our lives. We cannot direct these winds, but I can help you learn how to adjust your sails. These adjustments will lead you to finding a sense of purpose and direction in your life. Recognizing your value and strength will empower you to be able to face whatever storms might rage. Change is facilitated by understanding our emotions and how they affect not only us, but our relationships as well. "

I am curious about how clients thinking and feeling about self, cause behaviors the client wants to change. By creating new ways of being in thought and emotion, we naturally change in an effort to get to the heart of who we are. Much like walking a labyrinth. By understanding the true nature of self we honor who we are and change occurs within us and around us. Even with trauma we can move forward, having passionate, fulfilling lives."
