There is a saying, "In youth, we run into difficulties. In old age, difficulties run into us." Sometimes life can be really hard. Even the strongest individual may need support and guidance in dealing with unexpected circumstances, or in managing conflict and personal challenges. I believe that through safe, reassuring, and compassionate therapy, clients can work through any struggle, connect to their best authentic selves, and achieve long-term growth and personal transformation.

Finding the right therapist from a website is difficult, which is why I offer phone or in-person consultations. It takes courage to address challenges such as relationships, personal problems, or general unhappiness. Your success in treatment will depend on your readiness to open up and my authentic presence that will help create a safe space for you. Together we will work on identifying, experiencing and expanding your capacity to tolerate all ranges of feelings. You will become more conscious of your limiting patterns while developing healthy ones as your sense of a genuine and stronger self emerges.

If we are lucky in this life we will experience many inner deaths, each an opportunity to shed the scaly skin of yesterday, to embrace our own expansion, and enter a next dimension of life. If we fail to die, we fail to grow. Sadly, we have lost the ritual container that holds our rites of passage and without the containment and guidance that goes with it many of us feel lost, hopeless, deficient in some way and without a sense of belonging. Therapy in the depth tradition has become a space to compassionately witness and accompany individuals in the alchemical process of healing and growth.

Have you been in several relationships that have ended poorly? Do you wonder why most of the people in your life are never there when you need them to be? Perhaps, you wonder if you can ever be in a happy healthy relationship, because many people in your life seem unreliable, manipulative, and inconsistent. Maybe you are starting to feel as though you may be better off alone because you doubt whether you will be able to connect with people who value you for who you are. You long for a safe place to connect with someone who understands.
