"When the brain is highjacked in response to difficult memories and the bad-actor urges to disappear, embrace chaos or dive in to substances overtake us, what are your options? How will you keep the peace with those you love? I call it the practice of recovery. The welcoming of perspective. The experiments with change. The myth of rock bottom. The clinical education on brain/body balance and the recalibration of confidence. The Ah-Ha moments of “That’s it! You get me!” The realization we don’t need new … we need the loving embrace of … you. Are you ready to lean in?"

"Life can be complicated. When the noise takes hold of our being it can blur our direction in life; make us feel untethered, isolated. This affects the connection we have to our loved ones, our work, our self-esteem, and our place in life. In turn, patterns of behavior set in that prevent us from achieving our personal goals. Then, it becomes the norm. The body reacts. Symptoms emerge. Anxiety, depression, and meaninglessness take hold. We get stuck. I'm interested in working with clients who are ready to delve into what lies beneath the surface, who are ready to work through their inner worlds to externalize what longs to be seen."

We internalize characteristics, beliefs, and patterns of institutions and structures around us, while our capacity to evolve, grow, and contribute is enduring and dynamic.
