About Me & My Practice

We all have an abundance of inner strength, courage and potential available to us. You may be experiencing difficulty accessing these strengths or carrying them into all areas of your life for a variety of reasons. You may also be caught up in experiencing difficulties that don’t allow you to find the inertia or ability to get to your potential. Some of these difficulties that I work to alleviate so that you can find a more rewarding life are:

· Depression
· Feelings of being Stuck
· Anxiety
· Relational problems
· Angst
· Low Self-esteem
· Anger
· Grief


Many still regard therapy with a stigma, that somehow we all should be able to deal with our difficulties alone and if we can’t, there is something wrong with us or we simply need to try harder. Often, these solo attempts to fix your problems only allow you to get so far, leading to the same wall, falling back into the same hole and sustaining the same ‘old’ patterns that are locked in place that we attempting to overcome initially.

I work with my client’s in a compassionate and intentional manner to find the key to build upon inner strengths and potential that they are having difficulty locating or expanding. In my experience over the past years I have been awarded with witnessing amazing results from my work with client’s in areas of symptom relief leading to a growth and an access to potential never thought possible.

The first step is not to talk yourself out of the fear or out of being skeptical of therapy, but rather to accept it and move forward allowing for the possibility that something other than you have been trying will work.
