Sometimes you reach a point where you feel like
you just need to make some changes
Counseling is about getting the help you need to make changes that get you more of what you want:
Less Stress & Anxiety
A Better Attitude
Release from Depression
Moving through Grief and
Beyond PTSD or Trauma
Overall, Feeling Better about Your Life.
As your professional counselor or coach, I value the opportunity to assist you in making the changes you want to see in your life, with compassion and at a pace that fits you.
Whether you want to change a particular area of your behavior, lifestyle, relationship or career, we will work collaboratively to create a way that will empower you to find direction and navigate to where you want to be.
When counseling is a collaborative effort it allows you to view the problem without feeling overwhelmed because you have support to help you recognize and reinforce existing strengths, and cultivate new skills where necessary to empower you to change old, unwanted patterns of thought and behavior which no longer serve you.
My psychotherapy approach includes the heart, the head, and the body; honoring emotion, logic and neuro-physiology (mind-body) with the goal of improving and optimizing your whole being.
Whether you are dealing with anxiety, depression, PTSD or trauma, career or relationship, you can rely on my more than two decades of professional experience, continual training, and research in emotional wellness, mindfulness, healing strategies, neuro-biology, holistic well-being and Gottman relationship methods to address your issues.
I use leading-edge healing strategies to help move beyond micro or macro trauma, and unwelcome habitual thought patterns and behavior.
Methods and strategies such as EMDR, ART (watch this video), EFT, Mindfulness, CBT, and more are utilized to help you heal, restore, enrich, enliven and grow.
You receive caring, personalized, professional counsel and therapy for all stages of your life, not just when you are in crisis. A counselor is there when you need them.
With a personal counselor you get help tailored to fit your needs; for things like increasing calm, restoring serenity & building confidence.

° Cultivate strengths & discover solutions
