Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I believe each of us wants to live a happier, more fulfilling life but sometimes our inner dialogue keeps us from experiencing the richness we desire. When we are unclear about our life’s purpose and feel unsupported by our environment feelings of anxiety and depression may result. Sometimes we engage in addictive behavior to avoid feeling. When the substance or behavior is removed, the feeling remain. Maybe you have difficulty forming and maintaining relationships. Perhaps you have experienced work abuse. I will listen and support your feelings while offering guidance and direction helping you to recognize patterns.

Couples will learn communication skills to enhance your relationship. In addition to traditional therapy, I offer Act Therapy for self-exploration through the creative process and hypnotherapy to release blocks, change negative behavior and enhance job/sports/test performance.

All sexual orientations welcome.
