My Approach to Helping


Are you feeling depressed, anxious, or just "blah"? Do you feel as though you've become "stuck"? I have the answers to help you get unstuck, to get past fluctuating feelings of sadness, anger, anxiety and depression. Life can be happy, you can feel more confident, secure with who you are, and comfortable in life, and all it takes is a little time and effort on your part. We start with our free consultation.

The next step in the process of getting you on a healthy and productive path is for you to feel welcome in your environment. Feeling welcome creates a level of comfort so that you can begin to discuss what has been troubling you. You will feel safe, heard and understood in ways in which friends and family cannot provide to you. Building a solid foundation in which we develop trust and rapport towards one another is a close second to how my process progresses. Our relationship framework starts with openness and transparency from me towards you so you will feel a secure connection.

It is essential that you learn the coping mechanisms necessary to tolerate the feelings of pain in your life and develop the tools you need to begin to reconstruct a better future for yourself. I will assist you in more accurately perceiving your reality, controlling impulses, and delaying gratification. Becoming the most authentic person you can be means a higher self-esteem, greater self-confidence, worth, and value. It means setting and achieving goals you can attain for a positive and productive future.

Success is about standing out, not fitting in.

Please take time to listen to my multimedia message. This is a progressive relaxation exercise that can be used anytime you just need to refocus and relax.

More Info About My Practice

The individual who is growing is constantly challenging one's self. This takes courage. When a person steps into a new and better situation they can't help but have an uneasy feeling of inadequacy, and some people never learn how to overcome this fear. The pleasures of growth and development require effort, self-discipline, and a certain amount of pain. Suffering is caused because people do not know how to cope with said pain effectively. Most people exhibit strong tendencies to continue with their bad habits as they have in the past because they are fearful of the pain it will take to change.

Self-knowledge and self-understanding are two of the most important components towards becoming a confident, healthy individual. When a person understands one's self they will understand their basic needs and their true motivation and learn to behave in a manner, which will satisfy said needs. Self-understanding will also enable one to understand and relate to people more effectively.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

Successful interventions, regardless of the particular method used, seems to help the patient by providing greater understanding, insight, self-knowledge, and perception to reality. This confirms the fact that mental health is synonymous with a good perception of reality. As people become more conscious of their own motivations, their needs, their desires and their hang-ups, they seem to develop a greater ability to solve their life problems. As people become more conscious of themselves, their solutions to their life problems become easier and require less effort. Avoidance of suffering and pain reduces personal effectiveness and understanding of ones self increases your effectiveness.
