Announcement icon In these unusual times, we all need support regulating ourselves and staying connected. Virtual sessions can provide vital, direct support
Tired of isolation, insecurity and limited pleasure in your life? Ready to courageously shift through anxiety, depression, trauma and addictions? Motivated to become more centered, resourceful and connected? I assess comprehensively, work pragmatically and use a well-developed tool kit! Together we work to help you balance emotions, deepen insight, shift faulty views, resolve trauma, deepen forgiveness and forge new behaviors! If you desire to become more consciously present, creative, forgiving and expressive I invite you to allow me to be your therapist, forgiveness coach and intimacy-ally!
I offer mindfulness-based, somatic, pragmatic, depth-oriented psychotherapy and intimacy coaching. Soulful intimacy grows by recognizing and shifting core negative beliefs, false identities that limit behavior, communication, and attachment security Together, we ground the grist of daily experiences into valuable insights, practices, and results!
What gets in the way of your living with greater peace, clarity, and vibrancy? Unconscious beliefs, limited perspectives, mindless dysfunctional habits, and chronic defensiveness are patterns that can be compassionately and skillfully identified! Be supported in "shifting your perspective" to make space for greater ease, acceptance and relational wisdom.
