My Approach to Helping

Are you feeling confused and disappointed because things just never seem to work out? It's like your GPS is messed up. This usually leads to lots of second guessing and, eventually, a feeling of "stuckness." Then, you might start feeling anxious or depressed. Maybe this is accompanied by headaches and digestion problems. That's usually when people realize something is wrong and seek out some type of help. This is where I come in. The good news is that there is a way to get to the bottom of all this. It requires time and commitment on both of our parts because we have to break it down before we can move forward. The work requires a lot of trust and vulnerability on your part as we explore your experiences, some very painful. Once we both have a handle on that, we can apply that info towards helping you understand and clarify your feelings, thoughts and actions. You"ll be surprised how much this process will reduce your physical and emotional pain. And as a bonus, things will begin to go your way!

More Info About My Practice

Early traumas, like sexual, physical, and emotional abuse, parental mental illness, and addictions can have a profound impact later in our lives. When a client comes in complaining of headaches, neck and back pain, or stomach problems, it's often an indication of underlying issues. As we uncover the beliefs, behaviors, and feelings related to the trauma, the physical symptoms lessen. As we gather more information about how our experiences have shaped our thoughts, feelings and behaviors, we then can make better choices. It's empowering when you make conscious decisions based on more accurate information. It's not about re-living the trauma but rather about re-framing it so that your body and mind are no longer in pain.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

The interaction between two separate energies is amazing! My favorite moment is when those energies meet on the same plane. I believe it is in those moments that the healing takes place. Life is energy and it is most alive in those exchanges!
