I've found that having a dedicated space to unpack your heart with someone who unconditionally supports your growth & has a skill set/capacity to do so is priceless. Therapy isn't just for healing trauma, working with a disorder but is a preventative gift (to you and your loved ones).

If the relationship you are in is struggling, if you feel alone or as if you keep having the same fight, if you are struggling with some type of betrayal or anger  I can help.  In your first sessions we will discover the things that are holding your relationship back from being what you thought it could be when you first met. As we work together I will help you identify where new skills are needed and get you headed toward the relationship you have been longing for.

Therapy can be one of the bravest and most life-changing experiences you can engage in. It's a personal journey of self-awareness and healing. A key aspect of that process is finding the appropriate therapist to support you on that journey. The right fit is important. My belief is that each person has within them the wisdom to know how to heal. My job as therapist is to help people connect with that inner wisdom and utilize the person's strengths to address the challenges they are currently facing.

Are you HAPPY? In my 35 years in private practice I have found that what most people are looking for is HAPPINESS. Through my personal work in my own therapy and studying with Tibetan Masters and Native Elders I have been blessed with the secret of finding happiness. It is my life's work to share how to achieve happiness with individuals,couples and families. I have also come to believe that EMPATHY is the key to healthy,communicative relationships. I studied with Dr. Marshall Rosenbergs' and intergrate his techniques for Non-Violent Communication Skills in my work.

Whether you are coming to therapy because you are battling addiction, have relationship issues, unresolved trauma, or are striving for more balance in your life, I am here to help. Making an appointment with a therapist takes courage and is the first step toward personal growth and change. Some people come to therapy to improve their communication skills while others come to explore their unresolved pain that may show up in various symptoms such as, depression, anxiety, or substance abuse. If the underlying pain is not dealt with, life can seem difficult and maybe even unbearable. There is no need to suffer. There is hope.

I have a curiosity in learning about people's stories, the healing power of hope, and bring compassion to the experience of a life out of balance. Therapy can help us develop wise responses to reach our goals and find solutions to life's problems. There are many reasons to seek therapy. Therapy creates a container to explore and attend to the difficulties in our lives. Therapy supports lasting change through awareness. Everyone has the potential for change: to heal, listen and feel understood-- I want to work on building that community by supporting the exploration of fulfillment, courage and wisdom.

For many people it is hard to ask for help when it comes to sorting out the challenges of life. Making the decision to seek assistance from a therapist is courageous and can be rewarded with a safe, warm and supportive therapy environment. I work with people who often feel they are in crisis, experience anxiety or depression, have a low sense of self and struggle with the relationships in their lives but are motivated to gain insight and skills that are necessary to make lasting positive changes.

Something bad happened. Whether it happened recently or years ago, you find yourself still bothered by it today. Memories of it pop into your mind against your wishes. When you come across something that reminds you of this past experience, you get really upset. There is a constant feeling of being on edge, like you can never truly relax or let your guard down. The thing that happened is affecting your life much more than you want it to. There is a part of you that believes you might not have to feel this way. A part that believes therapy could help you feel better and find more peace in your life. That part of you is right.
