I believe one of your goals in life should be to continually learn how to resolve the problems you run into. Obviously some problems do not go away and cannot be easily resolved. With these, you must learn understanding and coping skills to manage them instead of allowing these problems to manage you. This is what counseling is all about.

You are going through life surviving but aren't really thriving. On the outside, people might not even notice anything is wrong. Inside, you're second guessing yourself & struggling to find balance. It's difficult to feel like you know who you are or how to be yourself around other people. These feelings may be affecting your relationships, school, parenting or career. Through our work together I will help you engage more fully in the present, & work towards the best version of yourself. It is hard work but can be done with gentle guidance. I'm trained in EMDR, CBT and EFT.

Since it is our unconscious, spirit part that we are seeking to heal, we must access this part through a variety of right-brain techniques that communicate with the unconscious. The goal of this therapy is to get the defense system out of the way so that we begin to operate out of our true sense of self, begin to create boundaries, make choices truly reflective of our own wants and needs. We then find that we no longer need to rely upon the destructive coping techniques previously used to protect us from the awareness that we are not integrated.

Are you depressed, struggling with low self-esteem, lacking motivation, or needing help transitioning through life? I believe that every individual has what it takes to succeed and live a fulfilling life. Sometimes, we have to go through the darkest storms to see the brightest rainbows.

I often say, counseling can be a bit like cleaning out a closet. You have to take things out, go through and organize them, and then put them back where they need to go. In a similar fashion, counseling can be messy, but with time and hard work, can lead to healthier, more enjoyable living.
