Learn Tools to Transform Pain & Stuckness Into Success/Joy!
Trauma /Phobias/ Learning Disabilites /Anxiety/ Depression
Turn obstacles into stepping stones. Whatever isn't working, is keeping you stuck, is keeping you repeating old worn out patterns, learn how to use that to transform yourself, your life into your most cherished dreams. Work through relationship issues, lack of self esteem, procrastination issues, depression, anxiety, fears. Learn how to use all of that as a basis of your strength, your confidence, your growth, and your healing of old wounds. Become the change you want to see happen.

How I work: Starting where you are, I work with you to guide you to find the source of discomfort/anger/depression/fear/stuckness, teach you tools to begin to till your own internal soil, and plant your own garden. I help you to understand your own process, recognize, and respect your own process. I teach you how to work with your own process to change and grow and allow who you are to flourish. I help you to heal old wounds and teach you how to harvest the bounty of gifts from those wounds. When the process seems stuck, I have a wide array of psychological tools to pick from to help you to move through whatever is blocking or making the process difficult. My patients leave not only having completed the work they came in to do, they leave having learned how to work with themselves,and having mastered many many tools for identifying their feelings. addressing their feelings, communicating with themselves and others, tools for healing themselves and loving themselves. They leave confident in themselves and in their ability to handle whatever comes their way. Couples leave having repaired their relationship with each other and with skills to keep their relationship alive, exciting, loving and nourishing. Kids leave with hope and faith in themselves and what they've mastered. Most patients leave having transformed themselves and their lives.
