My ideal client is frustrated, angry, in despair. Life hasn’t worked out the way it was supposed to. (S)he lost herself somewhere long ago, left herself behind. Relationships are hard; those recurring patterns and reactive behavior keep interfering with connection, and self-esteem, and contentment, and vitality, and... A malaise has settled, along with a darkness. This inevitably leads to anxiety, depression, isolation, addiction, and despair. My clients know there must be more. But, where to begin? How to start?

My specialty is Post-Traumatic Growth. PTSD is much more prevalent than we know. Perhaps as many as 65% of Americans suffer from this undiagnosed and untreated disorder, and it’s costing us all. PTSD is an inability to release trauma energy, and an unconscious rewriting of the stories of our lives. Usually, this story is about not being enough. I work with individuals and couples in releasing trauma in skillful ways, and more importantly, rewriting their stories, allowing for the radical and scandalous possibility of creativity, fulfillment, vitality, and hope.

"Underneath it all, who am I really?" This is a question that everyone on a path of conscious awareness asks sooner or later. Am I my addictions? Am I my reactions? Am I my thoughts? Who am I really? This question is the first step inwards. It is a beginning of the release of defensive mechanisms we have built from past injury. It is an awareness of the different parts of us that we often allow to run our lives, and a willingness to dig through the layers of who we are not, in order to unearth our authentic selves.
