Do you feel like you are stuck in a pattern of behaviors that aren't working for you? Are you using food, alcohol, drugs, sex, hoarding, or other compulsive behaviors to avoid negative feelings? Do you fall into a pit of despair or hopelessness that you are afraid others may not understand? Do you have trouble making or keeping friendships, relationships, jobs? I will work with you to figure out how you developed certain coping mechanisms, what you might be doing/thinking that is interfering with your happiness, and/or how to stop listening to your internal bully.

Together we will explore your inner world to figure out what may be unconsciously tripping you up. Once we have figured out what's happening under the surface, then you can have some control over it, and use new, life-affirming coping mechanisms to build a more contented life.

Is your kid struggling with anxiety or a low mood? Are you going through a major life change that you see coming out in your kid's behavior? I work with kids and their parents to help them learn growth-supporting ways to handle life's emotional ups and downs.
