"Healing takes courage, and we all have courage, even if we have to dig a little to find it."
– Tori Amos
Breaking Through What Holds You Back
Why can’t my partner and I work out our issues?
Why do the patterns in my life keep taking over?
Why do my relationships always turn out differently than I hoped for?
How can I break free of the anger, depression, loneliness etc. that always seems to be there?
How I Work
In my work with clients, I utilize a strong awareness, compassion, and intuition to gently help individuals and families uncover and release self-defeating patterns and regain an empowered connection to themselves and others.
My clients often find themselves receiving useful “ahas” early — it can be a simple spiritual practice that brings a new calm, a new way of talking or listening to yourself, or a small but dramatic step in taming a seemingly out-of-control situation.
When we feel overwhelmed we often look for answers outside of ourselves: If only my child would start behaving, if only my loved one would change, if only my work fulfilled me, if only my finances could sustain me … things would be better.
I guide clients to access their own inner strength and wisdom, so they are empowered to handle any situation life hands them — from life’s most difficult circumstances to relationships with the most challenging people.
Whether you are facing a stuck marriage or troubled relationship, a suffocating or stressful job, a young adult who’s on the wrong path, or a simple desire to have more love, stronger family connections, or a deeply fulfilling life, I can help guide you to a healthier and happier place. I use therapeutic approaches that are holistic and comprehensive and customized to each individual and/or family’s needs.
