Are you looking to connect with what gives you pleasure in life? You may be seeking help with depression, anxiety, or difficult relationships. Many people suffer through years of painful or problematic experiences that interfere with their lives. We can understand together what may get in the way internally and externally of satisfying personal lives & relationships. Often these can be symptoms of negative thinking, painful relationships, or misdirected emotions. Research shows talking to a trained professional can be very helpful. Working together can make you less overwhelmed, improve life decisions, and develop a sense of freedom and authenticity with both yourself and others.
I help couples & families regain closeness and joy in their relationships - to be in love with the people they're committed to. I create a space conducive to healing, which is only possible based on the healing work done in my own life. I'm comfortable with issues some other therapists can avoid.
We naturally have the capacity for healing and growth, but sometimes our life experiences limit getting what we want & need. Within a healthy and trusting therapeutic relationship (or therapy group), people show amazing capacity to grow into deeply satisfying lives.
