Whether you’re in a crisis, at an impasse in a relationship or in your family, feeling overwhelmed with anxiety, depression, guilt, and shame, sensing yourself reacting in a way that negatively impacts you, those you care about, or your career, there is hope. In my 27 years of practice, I’ve found those who choose to invest in their own growth gain richer, more meaningful lives. There is always hope. Significant personal change is possible. “Helping Make Good Hearts Better” is my practice aim. Hope for growth and an improved ability to move forward with a settled heart in the future is possible, and I work together with individuals, couples, families, and organizations to that end.
