My Approach to Helping
You know yourself better than I ever will. I enjoy working with individuals who are contemplating a change in their lives, whether it be a new job, new relationship, or something more challenging, like making a decision to stop problematic behaviors and symptoms that cause hurt and pain. I'll help you discover the unconscious thoughts and feelings that may be driving your behavior.
More Info About My Practice
Sometimes our unconscious drives our decision-making, often driving us to engage in problematic behaviors. We may also experience unsteady emotions like depression and anxiety due to uncertainty. In my practice, I offer a space where we can explore all the possibilities. I can help you learn anxiety and depression reduction strategies, develop more effective coping tools, and process and explore the next steps on your healing journey. Remember, you are not alone, even if it sometimes feels like it. I can provide the space for your continued growth and healing.
