Life tosses us curve balls, from job stress, to relationship changes, to dealing with difficult memories. It is helpful to work on these things with someone who can listen, lend perspective, help you understand why and what is happening, and help you plan and make changes. I can help you put your life on track, with over 30 years of experience, working with a variety of everyday issues, self-reflection, relationships as well as issues arising from trauma, abuse and experiences in combat. We will work together toward your goals.
I have worked extensively with the neurological and psychological effects of trauma. I see how it effects emotions, thoughts, and behaviors. Therapy can help you understand how you can free yourself from many symptoms, create more peace, engage in better relationships and get more joy in your life.
The most telling thing to have heard again and again is, "I can tell you anything." I think this is because of my tremendous respect for people, all just dealing with being human. Through talking, tears and even laughter....we are striving together for the most genuine life.
