There Is Light at the End of the Tunnel!
Living By Design
Change and growth are often preceded by some difficulty, personally or in relationship. I congratulate your willingness to get support in overcoming the challenges you are facing.

My intention is to assist you in living from genuine strength and authenticity. I will help you resolve problems and achieve happiness. In our work together, you will discover that difficulties and obstacles in life are often blessings for in reality we grow through adversity. This process of growth liberates energy bound in unresolved issues, so that energy can be used to create a life of your own design.

I employ a learning paradigm. A learning paradigm does not presume anything wrong with you -- it simply presents things you can learn to make your life more easeful and productive.

I utilize a spiritual psychological approach that is based on the understanding that our true essence is spiritual and that our body, mind and emotions are vehicles for spiritual expression. This essence is present in every moment and we have the opportunity to connect with and respond to its guidance.

You will discover that every psychological limitation or difficulty provides a special kind of opportunity -- to see where you have lost touch with essential aspects of your being and to recover these lost parts of yourself. Once recovered these energies can be directed toward creating a life that is rich and satisfying.

COUPLES:
I help troubled couples improve their lives, shifting from behaving like enemies to becoming friends, so you are better able to successfully and happily share life together.

Before we get married no one teaches us how to be successful in an intimate relationship. Counseling works because you learn skills so you can be successful and happy with you partner.
