Announcement icon I conduct all counseling sessions via telephone/video which can be recorded and downloaded to your computer for future reference.
I believe that we all have an innate guidance system which is like a GPS, ever-present and unerring, which lets us know when we are off-track. As a result of our programming - familial, societal, cultural- it is very difficult to remain on track of who we really are, and we forget what it feels like to be truly ourselves. We become so used to being off that we lose our way and we don't remember how to get back, how to return to that core. We often don't even know what that core looks like. I can help you to return to yourself, to the clarity you need, and to the love that you innately want to give and to receive.
A therapist who is a good fit for you can guide you back to your unique path, to the answers and direction that you know at some level are true for you, but that you can't access right now. I have many ways of doing that, and you don't need to be concerned with the process, only the end result which is a sense of freedom and peace and having come home.
I am happy to offer you a free thirty-minute consultation to determine if we are a good match. I can get some understanding of what you are struggling with, and you can get a feel for how I relate to you. The specific therapeutic approach is not as important as our styles of relating which determine progress. Please visit my website for more information.
