My clinical work over the past 20 plus years has included working with many different issues including eating disorders, women in transition in their lives, adolescents, sexual abuse, infertility, divorce.
If Self Help advice and strategies had been enough you probably would not be looking for a therapist. Those strategies make sense but are often very difficult to implement. The human psyche is a complicated mechanism which tends to resist change. Breaking problematic patterns of behavior and interactions with family, friends and in work environments is harder than it looks. Past history , fears and anxieties often contribute to making it difficult to make positive changes in ones life. My work with you includes examination of factors making it difficult to change and strengthening your resolve to make beneficial changes.

Footprints was started by a therapist who realized that often times the services provided to low socio-economic communities is lacking quality care. We noticed these communities where confronted with long wait times, disrespectful admins, and subpar treatment. The one and only purpose was to exploit the community for profit without providing the level of care deserved. Feel Better Therapy began from the inspiration to provide quality mental health care to the poorest of communities and treating the clients of this community the same way a rich patient would be treated in a clinic treating affluent clients.

Considering entering therapy can be filled with hope for positive changes and concerns about the process. We all have questions: Is change really possible? How difficult will it be, what might I discover, and do I want to know it? Is it even okay to express what I'm really thinking and feeling? If you're up for doing the work, then the answer is yes. The road to bringing your struggles under your control is both challenging and worthwhile.

I then bring these feelings alive in the room so they can be addressed directly and compassionately. For many that is an unfamiliar experience.
