Areas of Focus
I can help you develop healthier ways of dealing with others in your life by working with you to improve the relationship you have with yourself.
Loss / Grief
I help to work through the pain of loss and grief to bring your feelings to a place of acceptance and relief by really feeling the loss in a healthy way.
I provide other alternatives through feeling the emotions that are underneath all this and help create within you the experience of relief.
Self-esteem / Self-worth
Strengthening the relationship with one’s self is key in navigating life and healing. Learn to trust, confide & rely on yourself.
Feelings of suicide need to be talked about, understood, and challenged as to what is really going on for your suffering and pain.
Trauma & Abuse
I specialize in trauma in my practice. About 80% of my practice is dedicated to people who with histories of childhood trauma, abuse and neglect.
"My goal is to help clients reconnect with themselves and to come to a deeper understanding and presence in the world. Pain and suffering can be transformed by developing a different way of being with one’s self that is nurturing and caring."
This transformation is done through the therapeutic relationship and acts as a bridge to your own experience of being you. I often tell clients that there are not guarantees in life, but the one thing I can absolutely guarantee is that you will be with yourself always so let’s start developing this relationship with yourself now.
The benefits of this type of experiencing is that it allows you to be open to giving and receiving at a deeper moment to moment basis that cannot be done when one is not connected or caring for one’s own self.
