I need an immigration hardship wavier letter. The flashbacks are so real. How do I make them stop? Real people. Real-life. Real issues. Talking to someone helps. That is why I am here.

Life at times can seem like a battle field, and our minds our most hostile enemy. Many of us are in conflict with both internal and external factors that exist in our lives. Sometimes we don't feel equipped to withstand these forces or conditions that exist in our daily life. Depression, trauma, abuse, addictions, failed relationships, and shaming thought patterns that can hold us back in family relationships, academic achievement, social interactions, and career development. I believe the battles we win within our minds, can extend throughout all areas of our life. It's not only becoming mindful, but taking steps towards change.

Has life been getting harder to handle lately? I can help you get to the heart of the matter quickly and then we can co-creative solutions tailored to your specific needs. My clients describe being in therapy with me as being involved in 'deeper work.' Sometimes the life disruption you are experiencing may be the beginning of an evolution toward a new stage, where life eventually becomes easier and more peaceful. Adult stage theory was the central theory in my doctoral program. I also am trained in leadership assessment and coaching models based on adult stage theory. Life does not have to keep being so hard.

There has been a major shift for men in our culture. In a previous generation it was considered wise to "cut off" from your emotional self. That style is no longer effective for men. Today men are seeking greater self-awareness. They need to be more aware of their emotions so that they can navigate relationships with strength and wisdom. I have a relaxed style and I believe humor is a part of the healing process. I am interested in helping men move from distress, confusion and pain to clarity, peace, and self-acceptance.

For some, childhood can be a time of happiness, joy and excitement, and for others, it came be a time of disappointment, confusion and pain. When we understand the narratives we were given early on, we can choose to embrace or move beyond them. When there is loss or trauma in a child's life they can often have difficult or challenging relationships with others. Children who are dealing with great pain are often operating in a mode of survival which can make it very hard to allow people to get close. Family Therapy helps them learn how to build stronger and closer connections in spite of the painful things that happened to them.
