Aloha! Do you think, "If life came with a manual, I've lost mine..." You are not alone! Life brings many changes, choices and challenges -- sometimes we respond well, and sometimes we find ourselves confused, depressed, angry, anxious or overwhelmed. Perhaps you've found that your usual coping methods aren't working as well as they did in the past, but you don't know what to do next. Perhaps you're in a situation or role you've never been in before. Or perhaps you're finding yourself thinking, "Here we go again..."

I believe therapy is a gift you give yourself. Until we have the skills to identify our needs, learn to communicate those needs effectively, and give permission to nurture ourselves, we are not fully liberated to love and take care of one another. You can give yourself the gift of therapy. Give yourself permission to sit, pause, think, process, and just be. I believe you have all the resources within you to navigate whatever types of terrain you have found yourself in life, and it would be my honor to accompany you in your journey to self-discovery.

Is something stressing or bothering you? Are there times when you feel like it's too much, that it's overwhelming? Trying to figure it out? Are you confused and don't know what to do? Have you wondered if talking to someone - a professional - it would help? Think you need more than just talking because you've experienced a trauma? I use a special technique, "Tapping" (Thought Field Therapy), that may help you move beyond the trauma or learn to get over it. If you're having a rough time, you can feel better. I'd like to help.
