"In these times, we may lose our sense of meaning and direction. Stress can trigger new trauma, while activating old traumas. Do you find yourself in a crisis situation that you are struggling to resolve? Do you feel lost while seeking a renewed sense of self, creativity, passion or direction? Do you feel trapped in patterns that don't reflect who you are becoming? For 20+ years, I have aided individuals in resolving crises and discovering new meaning and direction. In a safe environment, using a 3 tiered depth approach, we uncover your soul's wisdom for healing and renewal."

"Healing for Addiction, Codependency and those affected by a Narcissist or Sociopath's behavior. I have been doing this work for over 27 years-NOT because I have to, but because I LOVE it. I am as engaged and enthusiastic about how therapy helps people as I was when I started. I have seen many people's lives change dramatically when they are given the education, tools, support and direction to courageously transform limitations into lessons they've needed to "get" but, unconsciously, have kept avoiding. With therapy, what's been bugging you can be faced and embraced."

"As I see it, the primary role of a counselor is to serve as a mirror to help reveal what the client hasn't yet been able to see-especially those patterns of relating to self, others, and the environment that might be causing suffering. At the same time, the counselor is there to reflect, affirm, and strengthen the client's unique gifts and talents.One of the biggest impediments to healing, growth, and creativity is shame. To help clients move through this debilitating emotion, I use a combination of mindfulness, body awareness, and other healing modalities."

"Some people pursue therapy because they love personal growth and self-exploration, but many of us come to therapy as a last resort or because our current experience is no longer tolerable. Even when we're suffering however, change can feel intimidating or unattainable. It can feel safer to remain in the discomfort of habitual patterns and experiences than to take a leap of faith into the unknown. It takes courage to pursue change, but if you are reading this, even if you are scared or doubtful, you have the courage required to heal and I am here to help."
