Clear, Resolve, Transform. I help clients discover and resolve subconscious causes for emotionaI and behavioral difficulties. The Subconscious controls emotions, desires, memory, habits, thoughts, dreams, and automatic responses. One may consciously understand the value of eliminating problematic emotions, thoughts or behaviors but unless the Subconscious Mind is reached, enduring change is unlikely. I address the underlying subconscious blocks to living a clear and free life. I have effectively treated sexual abuse, trauma, grief, anxiety, depression, phobias, addictions and more. Issues are cleared, clients report being able to function with more energy and clarity. Relationships thrive and lives are transformed.

Are you feeling stuck, or that your life isn't right? Possibly your relationship is not working? Perhaps worrying is preventing you from reaching your potential? Maybe you have tried medications, but are still unhappy? My psychotherapy approach enables you to fix problems so they will not come back. For example, I help you learn to manage your emotions so they don't control you, to become more assertive, to be less co-dependent. I treat depression, anxiety problems, marriage conflicts, alcohol problems, sexual addiction, and GLBTQ issues.

Women feel deeply, love deeply, and hurt deeply. We just do. Even with experiences like grief, trauma and relationship problems women sometimes go years before seeking help. We blame ourselves for how lost we think we are - or for our "brokenness." This is sadly normal but it's not true! That's why you might be seeking a therapist now, to get to the root of why life is feeling painful, possibly unmanageable. You want to uncover what hurts, improve relationships/communication skills and move more confidently in the world!

I believe that we live in challenging times. Many people find it difficult to feel confident and self assured, have peaceful, fulfilling relationships, navigate the demands of finances, family, work and home, and also focus on nourishing self care. These challenges are interconnected. They are related to how we have developed our sense of self in the context of family expectations and experiences, societal demands, cultural assumptions, and media influence. It is necessary for all of us to learn how to live our best lives in these particular circumstances. You are not alone.

How many times have we been told that life is stressful and unfair and that we have to deal with it? While it may be true that life is hard and we can be certain that challenges are always on the horizon, without having tools to handle this stress, it can feel almost impossible to overcome. If we weren't all taught skills to regulate emotions or cope with pain, how can we expected to know how to manage them. I can attest from personal experience, and from years working with clients, that we can all learn how to treat ourselves with more compassion and create space from our events that trigger us.
