My Approach to Helping
"What lies behind you and what lies in front of you pales in comparison to what lies within you" -Ralph Waldo Emerson
My approach to helping you is one that incorporates examining relevant aspects of your past, discussing goals you might hold for your future, and most importantly, discuss the strength that you hold inside of you. In experiencing despair and the discomfort of vulnerability we often lose sight of our strength and potential for growth. My goal is to assist you in learning the essential coping skills you might be needing in your life. I also aim to facilitate growth in the realms of mind, body, and soul.
I understand the correlation between the physical and psychological aspects in life, which can sometimes become unbalanced and may create discomfort, which can even feel debilitating at times, and want to help you make sense of some of the symptoms you may be experiencing. Contact me to restore the balance in your life and be free of the despair or dissatisfaction you may be currently experiencing.
