About Me & My Practice

I work with clients in dealing with problems they are dealing with, as well as in helping them achieve goals they have for their lives. To do this I take a two-pronged approach: we look at underlying, sometimes unconscious issues (some of which are a result of your experiences growing up) so we can understand what may be driving current behaviors which may not be optimal. The idea is, once the unconscious becomes conscious -- we then have choices! We can then consider what is motivating you and and you are empowered to change. The second prong is a pro-active approach. We look at what you are currently doing, or not doing, that is perhaps not working for you in your life. Once this becomes clear, we can set out a plan of action and I can support you as you make changes.
