Therapy for saying yes to life!

Are you feeling like your life is going sideways? At the same time, I bet you know that you have the right stuff for creating a different path. How come you're having such a hard time keeping it together?

As I see it, real change emerges within the safety of the therapeutic relationship.  With that framework in place, you start working through emotional roadblocks like depression, anxiety, relationship problems and posttraumatic stress and begin to realize what's right about you. Emotions, thoughts, and behavioral patterns start making sense and you feel more easily empowered in an embodied kind of way. Healing is happening from the inside out...and I am with you every step of the way! From my perspective, an inspired life is one where mind, body and spirit are aligned.

And, just one more thing...lest you think that therapy is more about darkness than light, please know about the healing power of shared laughter.  Chilling out through chuckles is a so therapeutic!

Taking the first step toward getting help is often the most difficult.
