"It's common to feel out of sorts, isolated, or misunderstood when experiencing relationship, family, peer, or workplace conflicts/stress, during a life transition, or when recovering from trauma. It may be due to a death, the end of a relationship, a relocation from another state or country, an adjustment to a health issue of yourself or a loved one, or being in an environment in which you feel you don't fit. It can be painful to experience these feelings and to try to find a way forward. You don't have to do this alone - I can help."

"Awareness is everything. How often do we ask ourselves: "How did I get back here again?" - repeating patterns of self-defeating behavior. Raising our awareness of these patterns can help free us from re-engaging in them. The rewards of this exploration are bountiful - as we watch new, healthier behaviors emerge. We get a glimpse of the gifts that life can offer us by simply getting out of our own way. In my practice, I have had the privilege of witnessing how the resultant emotional freedom can have a powerful healing effect on depression, anxiety and trauma."

Often people suffering from the painful effects of traumatic experiences have never really felt whole, known peace or felt truly acceptable. Much too often they blame themselves. Bouts of depression and anxiety are all too frequent. In therapy you undo the underlying causes of fear, shame and grief that drive depression, anxiety and dissociation.
