My Approach to Helping
When you look in the mirror and the person who is comforting you is YOU, it is an opportunity that you didn't know you had.
To hear a comforting healing voice that belongs to you, which perhaps you didn't know you were missing, or didn't have time to attend to fixing. This is the perfect time for self exploration, coaching and self appreciation.
Let's not make social distancing an internal event!
More Info About My Practice
I believe that individuals, couples, and families who feel broken or disconnected from themselves or each other need a vision towards wholeness and purpose. Through therapy, I can help you put your focus on wellness, optimism and fulfillment.
I work with individuals, couples and families. My specialties include trauma recovery, grief and loss, depression, anxiety, phobias, addictions & compulsions, life transitions and caregiver support.
Asking for help is not easy, and it does not mean that you are weak. I recognize that there is no "one-way" to heal, so we will find yours. When in therapy with me there is no judgement, we explore your values and beliefs. Together, we will uncover the reasons and issues that have hurt you in the past and find new roads to a healthier life.
When working with a couple, I focus on healing through developing insight. I know this is difficult when you are facing many life struggles such as depression, addictions, affairs, grief, anxiety, and misaligned values. Through the vulnerability that comes up in therapy, healing is possible to an enormous degree.
