You feel anxious whenever you see cars on the street. This means that the car accident is associated with the anxiety.

"Damaged relationships with the world and our families can affect us deeply throughout our lives leaving us feeling isolated, uncomfortable in our bodies and generally unsafe. Our energy begins to decline along with our enthusiasm for life. Its confusing. We quietly stonewall everything and everyone while wishing for the right partner, right career and right friends. Feelings of insecurity, loneliness or shame can spiral into deep bouts of depression, acting out, despair and suicide. Prioritizing the needs of everyone else can lead to unhealthy behaviors and choices supplanting authenticity and joy, while swapping virtual reality for real relationships and happiness."

It can only be known when we get in the room together and experience what unfolds between us - in one session and through time.

"Sometimes grief and pain builds up. The parts of yourself you feel you must hide to get through the day grow increasingly large. Therapy involves giving names to those lost and hurt places. This can include grieving--not only when loved ones were lost, but when things you longed for did not come to pass, betrayals happened, or important needs went unmet. I believe healing is an organic process that is different for each person. To that end, I am interested in getting to know your particular needs, and am versatile in pacing my style and feedback."

"We are all born whole, in lovingkind perfection. But life produces obstacles that sidetrack our becoming ourselves. Obstacles take any forms: trauma in the body, inauthentic identities, existential fears, beliefs indoctrinated but in conflict with one's essential values, or anxiety that something is wrong with oneself. The result can be alienation, grief, substance use issues, depression, anxiety, difficulty connecting, or incapacity to speak or create from the heart. Reconnecting with ones body, the natural world, and with an unconditional community are the foundations re-emerging into the Self you've always been. "
