Hello, nice to meet you.

If you’re here, chances are you are looking to work with someone who “gets” you and will walk the healing path with you. 

  • You feel angry, anxious and afraid, or sad and alone. You may be resorting to substances or other addictive patters to cope.
  • You’ve always felt different in some way, like an outsider or the “black sheep”, “freak”, “weirdo”.  You are not what society expects you to be, and you’ve been made to feel ashamed of this.  
  • You have difficult relationships with your partner, family, or friends.  You feel like you’re giving all you got to these relationships but not getting enough back.
  • You think that you’re “lacking” or “not enough” in some way.  Perhaps your parents or partner exacerbate this dreadful feeling and it’s really getting to you.
     

You are looking for help now because you are sick and tired of suffering! You want to get better, feel better, be better with yourself and others. You want to start your healing now. 

As your therapist (and fellow traveler of the healing path), I provide a safe and non-judgmental therapeutic setting for you to explore what moves you find and express the most authentic you. Together we can tackle anxiety, depression, loneliness, relationship issues, substance abuse, issues of self-esteem and self-worth, and all that comes with it by reconnecting and restoring your own unique inner wisdom and strength.  

On your journey, you’ll get to know, love, and comfortably embody and express your true self shamelessly.  As you increase your alignment with your authentic self, you will also experience more fulfillment in your relationships. You will be better able to negotiate your relationships so that they meet your needs – which may be a new feeling for you – or something you have not felt in a long time.  This is what I define as Empowered Freedom.  As your therapist, this is my overarching desire for you.  

If you are interested in learning more about therapy with me, give me a call or send me an email! I offer a free 15-minute phone consultation so that I can answer any questions you may have, discuss the issues you would like to address, and we can determine if we are a mutual fit for this work.
