My Approach to Helping
If you desire to experience more emotional freedom and to live life more fully, then I invite you to contact me.
Together we will explore how past events can create patterns that contribute to feelings of distress and relationship difficulties today. As you develop new insight and understanding about yourself through therapy, you may find more balance in mind, body and spirit, and a greater sense of freedom. My specialties include grief and loss, child and adult onset trauma and PTSD, issues involving spirituality and parentchild relationships.
I work collaboratively, meaning that we would work together toward your healing and well-being. It takes courage to make this step, and I commend you for your desire to make positive changes in your life. This is not a quick and easy process, but a worthy investment into your life, with the potential to positively impact the lives of your loved ones as well.
Navigating life is difficult, and painful life experiences can cause us to feel discouraged, alone, unworthy or abandoned. Sometimes the reason for struggling is unknown, or perhaps there has been an experience of loss, abuse or the repetition of destructive patterns. I work with individuals and couples who are in crisis or who struggle with long-term emotional distress
