Let Go of Fear and Pain
You Can Live a Life You Celebrate
You may feel like you are a bit of a mystery to yourself. You might even know what you "should" be doing to take care of yourself, but something keeps getting in the way. You know you want better connections with others but find it easier to spend time alone or with your pet instead. It may feel like nothing is seriously wrong in your life, but things don't feel totally right either. The self-help books just aren't cutting it anymore and you're just not sure what to do.

And yet you find yourself hopeful. You know that, with the right guidance and tools, you can get back on track and feel like yourself again. You know that you can beat your inner critic, shake your fear and pain, eliminate your anxiety, and free yourself from feeling "stuck" so that you can begin to live your life fully again and get back to celebrating YOU in your life.

Today you are one step closer to a new you where you feel empowered and on a positive path to growth and well-being.

As an integrative and multi-disciplinary therapist, it's important to me that I help you uncover your true potential and lead a life that is worth celebrating. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life. By applying a combination of evidence-based therapy techniques and and scientifically supported complementary therapy approaches, we will unearth long-standing behavior patterns, negative perceptions, and unmanageable feelings that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life.

If you're looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or you're just ready to move in a new direction in your life, I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals.

Contact me today for an individual, couple's, or group therapy consultation so we can get you back on track toward your dreams!
