You deserve to feel happy, healthy, and loved! Your relationships can be the best part of your life, helping you to feel joy, appreciation, and fulfillment...or you can find yourself just going through the motions. In our stressful and demanding world, it is all too easy to disconnect from those who are most important to us; poor communication leads to a lack of understanding, and we become demanding, intolerant, and unforgiving of ourselves and of those who matter most. Instead of sharing quality time together, we spend our energy tearing each other down. Gaining awareness, and learning from the past instead of dwelling on it, are some of the first steps toward moving forward. I find nothing more satisfying than helping people to overcome their obstacles so that they can love and feel loved, accept and feel accepted, and realize that they are truly worthy of all that life has to offer. Since 2009, I've helped my clients become better versions of themselves; let's work together and start turning your possibilities into realities!
I've helped individuals, couples, families, and groups, of all ages and from all walks of life, many with severe diagnoses such as bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, depression, anxiety, danger to self and to others, substance abuses and addictions of all kinds, domestic violence, sexual abuse, eating disorders, and other challenges.
One size does not fit all; because everyone is different, everyone's treatment is different. Using the best from many theoretical orientations, I customize my approach to fit the client, instead of the other way around. You choose your goals, not me; together, we'll work to achieve them.
