About

Be able and confident to use real tools helping to bring ease in your life and get your world on track. There is help for suffering, PTSD, anxiety, etc. that does not always involve having to trench up the past, but rather, can work right now to bring relief. Are you hurting or stuck? Often our past laid down unconscious survival mechanisms that are at work today that are no longer useful. We can work together to discover these and then insert a new and more useful tool that can allow more ease in your world. I help you identify current needs are so that these can be supported.
Client types that this is useful for: highly responsible adults in their work that have high demands on them, people who have difficulty saying no to others, adult children of narcissists, adult children of alcoholics/dysfunction, first responders with vicarious trauma, trauma victims, PTSD, family members of suicide, TBI and family members of TBI.
Life can be very challenging at times. Obstacles are thrown at us randomly which we need to learn how to navigate, when it seems impossible. These are the most valuable times for us to learn about ourselves and grow. I can offer you a place of empathy and grace, while finding a new way through.
