Bad things have happened to you and you wonder if life will ever get better. You desperately want happiness, but it always feels out of reach. You feel irritable and overwhelmed by worries and your relationships are suffering because others just don’t get it. You're trying to hold it together, doing the best you can, but you feel like it's never good enough. You can’t stop thinking about the past even though you try. You wish you could just "get over it", you're angry that you can't, and you're wondering if you'll ever feel normal. More than anything you want to feel connected to others and start feeling excited about life!

Life can be diffcult; talking can help. My goal is to help a person, within the context of safety and confidentiality, confront the issues which burden a person. At times this may involve talking about our past. At other times counseling may involve learning new skills and discovering new ways to deal with situations in a way that is healthy. Sometimes the process of counseling involves discomfort and can be challenging. What I provide is a listening ear and a willingness to walk with the client on the journey of life. Counseling is a positive step.

Life is difficult, transitions can be hard. Things can go along well and then you can find yourself uncertain about past, present and future. Uncertainty can bring about further emotional challenges, feelings of sadness, confusion, worry and possibly fear. Healing can be discovered within the self and having someone come along side providing safety and guidance can help the process. Experiences in life have a tendency to shape who we become, our thoughts and our beliefs. Some experiences unknowingly can close avenues of growth and potential. I believe in the importance of knowing, understanding and accepting self.

You know these health struggles are somehow behind your depressed and anxious feelings, and you feel alone…like no one understands. Right now, you may have more questions than answers, but one thing you know for sure is that you’d do anything to get your life back. You grieve for the person you used to be and find it hard to imagine yourself living a worthwhile life with this illness trying to drag you down every chance it gets.

Life is not easy and we can all lose our footing. It's easy to start thinking we can never be happy again. My goal is helping you find your capacity for meaningful change. Having the support system of a therapist is a powerful tool. My approach is direct and engaging (and it is okay for us to use humor). I work with adults and am an active participant in the session.
