Reaching out for help often takes time--there are so many reasons we give ourselves for putting it off! I recognize your courage for being here at this time. You are at the point in your life or in your relationship, in which taking action towards healing feels necessary. With warmth, creativity and insight, I help people who are yearning to live an authentic life - a life that is real, instead of perfect. One in which you learn to listen to your inner wisdom, to express your thoughts and feelings, and to face challenges with courage and integrity.
Together, we'll safely explore your self-talk, your beliefs, and how you approach and interact with others. We'll distinguish the "shoulds" from your "wants", celebrating what is already working for you and using those strengths to confront the areas that make you feel anxious, angry, or in pain.
You know you better than anyone. I can offer understanding, and insight from a clinical perspective to help you advance your goals. I am proficient in talk and drama therapy, and have witnessed the power of creative expression to open up and accelerate the therapeutic process.
