My Approach to Helping
Do you feel that whenever you try to move ahead that you keep making the same mistakes over and over again?
Are you so stressed out that you're not enjoying your relationships? (Or missing out on having relationships)
Is there in inner critical voice that seems to say, "You don't deserve to have what you want." or "You can't succeed."
Perhaps you are successful in some areas of your life, but you are so stressed out and overwhelmed that you feel like you're beating your head against the wall. No matter how hard you try to get to the next level in your relationships, your job, avoiding mood swings, or even getting a good nights sleep, it seems impossible.
I am passionate about my combination of coaching/counseling where I help you see the things that you don't see so that you can ....
Quiet your fears
Silence that inner critical voice and remove self-doubts
Get a good nights sleep
Learn coping skills
Enhance your relationships
Take back control of your life
I offer a warm comfortable atmosphere where you can break through your barriers and achieve the life that you want for yourself.
I help you turn that inner critical voice into a strong partner that allows your to set clear goals, make positive choices, and take the necessary actions to transform your life into a deeply satisfying one where you can reach your highest potential and achieve your goals.
More Info About My Practice
All potential clients are offered a complimentary "Stress Buster Breakthrough Session" where you will have the opportunity to explore what's not working for you and then learn the next step you need to take for getting where they want to go.
With my combination counseling/coaching program I can help you transform your life to achieve you dreams. Besides my individual and group sessions, I offer a deep dive intensive "Shattering the Invisible Wall of Stress!" program and/or "The Professional Mom's Guide to Success" program. Call me for a 10 minute phone conversation and we'll decide together if it would be of benefit to you to schedule a complimentary "Stress Buster Breakthrough Session" to learn if either of these two cutting edge programs or individual counseling/coaching is right for you.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist
As I work in this field of coaching/counseling I have the pleasure of watching my clients go from being frustrated at their lack of success in a certain area. Often they are successful in some areas of their life. But as they transform the area(s) where they are stressed before they are empowered to achieve the life of their dreams.
My Role as a Therapist
I see my job as first helping you get clarity on what you really want. What is causing you to feel stressed? Why are you procrastinating? Why do you feel fearful or have doubts about yourself? We then identify what is stopping you from succeeding in your goals. We look at how past events can sometimes still be haunting you in the present. You learn the tools to get past these events and learn new patterns to propel yourself forward.
My role as a therapist is to help you achieve your dreams. The goals that we work on are your goals. Your transformation into being successful in areas that have stymied you before is the reward.
What Makes up a Problem?
There are many ways that too much stress shows up in our life. Perhaps you notice things like being a constant worry wart. Perhaps there are too many negative thoughts. Perhaps every time you think of a goal you have your critical "inner voice" tells you that you can't succeed. Perhaps you find yourself making the same mistakes over and over again. It could be something like always choosing a partner who is emotionally absent. You want to change these negative patterns but you don't know how. If it was easy, you would have already done it.
When you are stressed, you may also have a number of physical symptoms such as headaches, aches or pains in the body, stomach or digestive problems or getting colds fairly often.
