If you are struggling with an issue in your life and you feel "stuck", you know how hard it can be to ask for help. You may have tried therapy in the past and it had some benefit, but you are ready for a different approach. Have you ever thought, "I get what my therapist says about my anger, sadness, anxiety or trauma, but it doesn't change my pain"? You want to work through your issues because it's draining to spend so much energy keeping them contained, just to get through the day or week. Then you may want to try therapy with me.

I have much experience in caregiver stress, life transitions, anxiety, and trauma. I am trained in TIR (Traumatic Incident Recovery) and in LSR (Life Stress Reduction). I will work collaboratively with you on the issues you want to address. My method is structured, but centered on YOU and the issues that you wish to work on.

Are you unsure, but you are willing to give it a try on at least a few sessions with me? I understand, and I invite you to do so. Please contact me, and I will briefly explain the LSR/TIR method and how we will work together to reduce your distress, whatever is causing it. We will begin working on your issues at the first appointment.
