You doubt that you deserve to be happy. You doubt you are worthy of being loved. You believe you are broken beyond repair. You're constantly doing things you are "supposed to" and follow the rules, yet you don't know what you want. You're unsure what brings joy into your life. You're afraid that if you follow your intuition and express yourself authentically, people will reject and abandon you. You feel exhausted from trying to make people around you happy. You want to have closeness in your relationships, but it's hard to trust people. You don't even trust yourself. You truth was not accepted in the past.

Are you struggling with emotional and/or relationship issues and not sure how to deal with them? Seeking help is not easy and I recognize it takes courage to take that first step to reach out to a professional. For that reason, I use gentle, compassionate, and affirming methods to create a safe environment and work at a pace that is most comfortable to you. Sometimes it’s easy to talk about the issues and at other times, it feels too private or painful to reveal. When memories are too painful to share I can even work with them silently. I also incorporate many holistic approaches, honoring the mind, body and spirit connection.

If you are looking to make a change but are not sure how, therapy can help. Therapy can feel intimidating but it shouldn't be. The process of learning about yourself and evaluating how you think can prove to be a healing one. It also helps you to find ways to make desired changes. It's human to get stuck sometimes and it helps to talk things through, to help make sense of it all.

I seek out glimmers of core emotion in the present moment -- that is where the magic or possibility for change lives. I help clients learn to relate to people in a healthier, more wholesome way -- this may be learning to reach out, or it may mean having a sense of what you need and want so you can get those needs met in your relationships. I work by listening closely and pushing clients know what's going on internally. I tell them what I am feeling and ask clients to be in touch with their bodies and feeling not just their thinking.
