"Sometimes life?s challenges can be really difficult, overwhelming and even painful. Changes can be sudden, unexpected and unplanned. You might be completely unprepared. Perhaps overwhelmed and exhausted, finding yourself struggling on as best as you can. Or you might feel stuck. Not quite living the life you really want. Or you might be facing relationship or marital difficulties. Or overwhelmed with intense and uncomfortable emotions, perhaps depression or anxiety.
Life?s circumstances can leave one feeling desperate and helpless, not knowing where to turn.
Talking to an experienced, trained professional can help in specific ways including increasing creativity, meaning, purpose, joy and passion in your life. Perhaps most important, you will learn new skills which can help you work with challenges and difficulties in powerful ways. Most of all, you will open yourself to other options and possibilities, even connecting with a deeper sense of value and purpose.

My Therapy Focus

"What is most pressing for you right now? What's on your mind? What's on your heart? What is most distressing, difficult, challenging and painful for you right now? What do you want, deep inside? For yourself, your relationship or marriage, your family? What's missing from your precious life at this time? Gently we explore these questions, looking closely at ways in which narratives and stories can be suffocating and keep us stuck. Always allowing deeper experiences to emerge, opening and freeing and supporting new ways of being in your life.
