Fears, anxiety, and depression can be debilitating. I have the ability to listen warmly and compassionately to what you're saying even if you are feeling jumbled or confused. I create a safe space for you to be able to vent. Often having a person listen with understanding of what you might be experiencing can ease your discomfort. I can offer gentle guidance if you are at a crossroad, a turning point or are feeling challenged by others in your life. Relationships are the most important things in our lives, yet often, the most difficult. Better communication skills can help.

It is through relationship that we learn about ourselves and how best to be in relationship with others. At times, stress can threaten to overwhelm, priorities can become unclear and uncertainties can mount. We all benefit from a consistent and trusting relationship in which to identify our feelings, thoughts and behaviors, to be supported in our efforts to determine and utilize our own strengths and resources, to build our coping strategies, and begin to create the change we choose to work on in any stage of life
