Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I have been in practice since 1990 working with adults, adolescents and couples. In my work as a counselor, I focus on the healthy integration of mind, body and spirit. My approach is primarily Cognitive and Transpersonal focusing on alleviating chronic feelings of anger, jealousy, anxiety, judgment, resentment, blame, helplessness and so on. These states consume our energy and are not supportive of our physical health and well being. I offer practical tools and alternative perspectives helping to consciously release and reprogram unsupportive thoughts, beliefs and attitudes. Focus is given to self esteem and authenticity as important aspects of wellbeing.

Are you stressed out? Do you sometimes find yourself snapping at your children? Would you describe your relationship with your husband as “distant”? Or do you feel like you are going to lose it if someone doesn’t give you a break? Being a mother, wife, or daughter can stretch us to our limits. During times like these it can feel like the world has been turned “upside down”. There is HOPE! You don’t have to figure this out alone. Let’s talk and see if I can help you make things “right side up” again.
