Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Do you feel stuck? Would you like more from your life? Are your true needs, wants and desires being met? Is something holding you back from making a career change or other major life decision? Or, are you stressed out or feeling overwhelmed – attempting to distract yourself from difficult emotions with ineffective and/or harmful coping mechanisms such as substance abuse, overeating, compulsive shopping, gambling, pornography, playing video games to avoid homework or other responsibilities, or simply working way too much?

I help others identify unhealthy patterns that prevent them from moving forward in their lives – whether it involves a job transition, a relationship issues, an addiction, a spiritual crisis, anxiety, depression, grief and other psychological challenge. I provide a calm, non-judgmental presence and offer healthy, alternative tools for personal insight and change.

Allow me to help empower you to make more satisfying choices in your life.
