Life is a journey to understand ourselves, our purpose, and how to connect with others. Obstacles such as fears, unhealed wounds, and destructive thinking can impede our well-being. In addition, our fast-paced, high stress, disconnected culture can literally steal our peace. This can result in anxiety, depression and other psychological struggles.

As your therapist, I will guide you to recognize learned patterns of thinking, acting and feeling that may be creating suffering in your life. Together we will explore where and why you learned those patterns. Once fully understood, you will find the courage to transform those learned patterns into healthier ones. I will then guide you to practice these new and healthier patterns in the therapy room as well as in your life outside the therapy room. Once you transform old patterns of relating into healthier ones, you will feel lighter, more confident and happier.
