Deciding to call a therapist and reach out for support with life's challenges requires courage and a leap of faith in your self. Your desire to end your suffering is where this healing journey begins. Your call or email is the first step. If you are reading this, the time is now. I understand the human condition, the trepidation about going to therapy and the place you are in life right now. I am here for you. I know it can be hard to find someone to connect with in a sea full of therapists and counselors. Finding the right connection can be difficult. I am here to help you and invite you to make lasting changes in your life. Know that aside from decades of professional training as a therapist, I have also been a client for my own personal growth and healing.
I meet you where you are in your pain and distress to move through the stuck points in your life that hinder your growth and stifle your spirit. Sorting out your emotional process with an experienced therapist can cultivate your own inner resources and create opportunities to healing that may have not been available before.
It is my premise that states of mental confusion, depression, anxiety, upset and dissatisfaction with life and our relationships result from internal conflicts leading to a sense that things are not working out in our lives, at times without really knowing why. I invite you to cultivate a life full of possibilities, satisfaction and relationship.
I slept and dreamt that life was joy. I awoke and saw that life was service. I acted and behold, service was joy.
My practice is transpersonal in nature, drawing methodologies from mindfulness based spiritual traditions of the world, integrated with contemporary psychology. This type of counseling takes the entire person into account, not just their mental and emotional aspects, and examines problems from both practical and spiritual perspectives.
