Life is beautiful and it can be so hard too. I have a deep commitment to improving my clients' sense of safety and peace in the world, and in relationships. I have seen the many ways relationships shape our well being. Learning to feel more confident and connected is a goal therapy can help achieve. Perhaps you want to improve self esteem; maybe there are relationships in need of repair; or could be that a recent or past trauma left you feeling vulnerable. Be it anxiety, self worth/confidence or even parenting challenges that bring you to therapy, getting support is courageous and growth is always possible.
Years ago teaching self defense, I discovered some very key components of healing: assertiveness and boundaries.I believe that key to many issues is an awareness of our boundaries, the skills to set limits and the development of assertiveness. When we honor our integrity and self respect we create internal courage. Connections become easier and more healthy.
I have an eclectic approach. I use cognitive behavioral approaches as well as mindfulness & more. I will listen carefully and help sort out the root of your concerns, using strategies that best match the issue and you. Whether you have engaged in therapy before or have never sought out help, you deserve an experienced, respectful and skilled clinician.
