More Info About My Practice

I specialize in helping women reach their full potential. What I have found is that most of us possess what it takes to lead a fulfilling life but often times these parts of us remain untapped or buried under painful experiences. To get to our true self can take some effort. It may involve learning to be more assertive, questioning existing beliefs, or facing the fact that we have strengths and weaknesses. The end result is feeling more comfortable in your own skin, which in turn allows us to feel more peace, clarity and connection to ourselves and others.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

In a world where it often feels unsafe or socially unacceptable to discuss our inner feelings or struggles, effective psychotherapy offers people the opportunity to be themselves, take a look at their lives and begin or continue a journey of healing and growth.

For many people psychotherapy provides the unique chance to take the focus off of others (the boss, the partner, the parent, the child, etc.) and turn that focus onto oneself. This can feel strange at first but when a person knows who they are and why they feel what they feel things start to change.

Psychotherapy also offers the benefits of a working relationship with a trained professional who is there for you and wants you to succeed. Most people enter psychotherapy frustrated and with some resistance. A good psychotherapist should gain your trust, be able to guide you over the mountain and give you the tools and experience to face new mountains with the right tools and a sense of direction.
