Are you feeling overwhelmed? Do you want to find solutions leading to greater peace of mind and contentment? I provide you a compassionate, safe environment to speak freely about your unique situation. Although we can address together any life issue, my specialties include couples counseling, premarital preparation for marriage, caregiver stress, and grief therapy. I can also teach you mindfulness techniques to handle daily stress and bring clarity of thought. Tinnitus can be treated, too. Having studied world religions, I can help you use your religious and spiritual beliefs to facilitate your life journey, regardless of your path.
Are you anticipating a marriage proposal or are you a bride preparing a wedding? Increase the chances that you will stay together by getting prenuptial counseling. Is your marriage struggling? In my therapy sessions, couples uncover the love they have for each other and often preserve the relationship.
As a member of the Greater Kansas City Psychoanalytic Institute, I am committed to therapeutic and counseling best practices. With 12 years experience in Europe, Asia, and Africa, I have experienced many cultures and use a tailored approach centered on compassion, a skill honed as a Zen practitioner in Japan.
