"By working together with me, you will gain realistic self-esteem by making positive changes and by gaining confidence in your ability to successfully manage your life and reduce negative emotional symptoms. I believe that most people have the tools within themselves to set goals, grow as individuals and to solve the problems in which they are experiencing. However, there are times when people become overwhelmed by life's difficulties making it difficult for them to see their own potential. I help facilitate people to identify the contexts in which their problems exist and set/accomplish goals for behavioral change, relationship improvement and emotional growth."

You don't trust yourself anymore and how you got to this place. You are having thoughts that are troubling and too embarrassing to admit. Though you try to talk about it with friends and family, they don't seem to get it. You long for connection and understanding."

Those referred to me with these issues find that symptomatically they are struggling with panic, sleep disturbances, worry thoughts, self-defeating thoughts/behaviors, eating disorders,addictions and unknowingly, at times, some of their difficulties have been attached to old trauma. Many people with these sorts of struggles find that this spills over into problems with relationships and/or functioning at work and school. Areas of intimacy, both emotional and sexual are important work also. I work with individuals, married couples,families, and groups."

My work with clients is based in attachment theory, believing that the strongest attachments from our life, greatly impact how we understand ourselves and our relationships . Family, work and school pose as great points of contact with addressing our basic needs for belonging and significance. For some, childhood can be a time of happiness, joy and excitement, and for others, it came be a time of disappointment, confusion and pain. When we understand the narratives we were given early on, we can choose to embrace or move beyond them. "
