My Approach to Helping
Are you experiencing a wide range of emotions? Are you going thru a difficult transition at this time in your life and find it hard to get your needs met? These experiences can cause anxiety and/or depression. Sometimes it helps to talk to someone who can guide you through the storm.
I am a Psychotherapist specializing in transition issues, anxiety, depression, and relationship conflict, as well as codependents involved in a narcissistic relationship. My philosophy is to meet my clients where they are using an eclectic approach and to help them understand their behavior patterns, gain insight into their past and current challenges and help them feel empowered in their daily life. I am also a Life Coach focusing on transformation, self-esteem and self-sabotage, mind-body balance and productivity. Change is hard. Chronic stress can sneak up on you. I've been there too. If you are feeling overwhelmed or unsure of the next step to take, don't hesitate to reach out for a lifeline. You don't have to stay anxious and/or depressed. Therapy and coaching have been around for a long time. An abundance of clinical research shows they are a proven method of helping to create change, positivity and, most importantly, a meaningful life.

How Psychotherapy Can Help
Psychotherapy and Life Coaching provides a safe, nonjudgmental atmosphere where you can feel accepted and supported. During your time in therapy or a coaching session, your story is the only story the therapist or coach is listening to. It is your time to be heard. It is your time to heal. In fact, the most important aspect of therapy/coaching is to connect with the therapist/coach. Then you know you are in the right place!
