""Men are not troubled by the events of the day but by their interpretation of those events". What does this statement mean to you? To me it means that pretty much anything can happen around us and the ONLY thing that really upsets us is the meaning WE attach to that happening. I enjoy working with adults, adolescents, couples and families to overcome any number of thought-based issues like anger, self-esteem, anxiety, depression, co-dependency, body image issues, binge eating, grief and PTSD. I also have years of clinical experience working with substance abuse and co-occurring disorders."

Perhaps, you are struggling with chronic illness and pain but still feel the weight of the world rests on your shoulders? Do you find yourself escaping into social media or yet again binge watching another season of The Office or another Holdiay baking show on Netflix. You sacrifice your sleep, diet, and well-being for everyone else and are starting to feel emotions of resentment and anger."

Acquire step by step techniques to quiet distress, process trauma, or ease anxiety and depression. Harness your mind and body's natural power to self-heal. Suffering alone isn't strength; you do NOT have to live this way. Coping strategies such as thought-habit training or hypnotherapy may be the breath of fresh air you're seeking.

"Life has ups and downs; many times we negotiate these with our own skills and support from others. Sometimes, however, the burdens feel like more than we can handle. Sometimes we just feel alone and misunderstood, even by those that usually support us. We may even start to question what we know about ourselves. It is at these times that therapy may be especially helpful. Therapy can assist you in better understanding yourself and the challenges you are facing.
