My ideal client is a person who doesn't want to give up on him/her/themself and the dream of a fulfilling life. I support clients to know the truth: they deserve love and success no matter what wounds they've experienced. I help people uncover the deep wisdom and restorative potential living within them. I do this gently and safely, in the present moment, by reconnecting clients with healing, embodied emotional experience. This gets vitality and intuition moving again I support people to take responsibility (but not blame) in any life/work/relationship upset because this is what works!

Sometimes life is the hammer and you are the nail. It’s one crisis after another, one stressor after another, the pressure is overwhelming. Males, in particular, often suffer in silence. No wonder you’ve been irritable, isolating, or turning to substances to cope. It can feel like the walls are closing in on you. You deserve some breathing space from the stress weighing on you.

You have never really felt like you fit in anywhere. It seems as if people just do not get you and you might even be afraid to show them who you truly are. The opinions of others weigh heavily on you which has taught you how to bend and fold yourself to meet the needs of those close to you. You feel as if you have lost your voice or have even struggled to use it. But you keep going despite the growing disconnect between who you are and who you want to be. Now is the time to regroup, refocus, and live intentionally.

Everyone is destined to experience stress, loneliness, loss, illness, pain, self-defeating choices, uncertainty, relationship or work problems. Sometimes it's hard to know when to ask for help. Seeking therapy does not mean there is something wrong with us. Many individuals are concerned about getting labeled with a mental illness because they are struggling with life issues, traumatic events or troubled families. I am less interested in finding labels, and more interested in working with you to better understand your struggles and help you develop more successful coping techniques.

Are you struggling with substances but feel “rehab” isn’t right for you? You don’t need to leave your job or family for a month to find the help you need. Addiction is tough: that compulsion to go back and do the same thing over and over, even though you know it's destroying your life... You feel fear, anxiety, failure, worthlessness, humiliation, contempt... You've tried to break the 'habit', get your control back, but just when you start feeling some success you stumble, and you're back in the same hole again. Breaking your substance abuse alone is not as simple as it sounds. Counseling may be more effective for you than rehab.

We help to empower your family with new ways of communicating and relating, so harmony is restored. Kids need to feel heard and that what they think matters. Children often feel like no adult is listening, at school or at home. We help to give both children and parents a voice, which often calms the chaos.
