"Do you feel consumed with worry about acceptance from co-workers and bosses due to past trauma? Has something from the past resulted in a sense of incapability toward the future you so desperately desire? Does being on guard against criticism from acquaintances and personal failures have you losing sleep at night, waking up sweating with knots in your stomach, and daydreaming through your husband’s report of his day and your children’s repeated requests to play? Are you too exhausted and overwhelmed to answer your best friend's calls, can even you remember the last time you exercised or meditated?"

"Hope offers light despite the darkness. Deciding to participate in counseling is an important decision and it takes a lot of courage. I commend you for taking the first step. Throughout life, I have learned lessons about the gifts we receive when we take the chance to talk honestly with trusted individuals. It takes a ton of bravery to be vulnerable (at our own pace), but that is how we achieve the safety we are looking for to thrive, and where we build the compassion and sense of belonging we want in relationships. I’ve been a counselor since 1986 and love my job! It’s such an honor to walk with people as they grow and heal. "

When we abandon our authentic selves we may experience depression, anxiety, trouble sleeping, confusion and emptiness. Loss of Self is frequently a result of trauma, abuse, or childhood attachment wounds. I use a combination of depth therapy and EMDR to work through old traumas or negative beliefs about self. I also love working with couples to improve communication and to achieve greater intimacy."
