Are you tuning in and really taking care of yourself? Are you listening to what you really need to be doing and focusing on? Or, are you distracted and sidetracked- ignoring that core part of your Self and settling for less in your life? Are you getting the most out of your life right now?
Perhaps you have been feeling sad, depressed, unmotivated, anxious or just plain "blah"? Maybe you’ve been experiencing stress in your relationships, at work, or in other areas of your life? It is so important to embrace your core self so that you can function from a more balanced, connected and centered place. This centering will give you the foundation from which to navigate your life in a balanced and fulfilling way.
I help clients of all ages connect to living their true Self by teaching them how to determine and respect what’s most important for them. Honoring your personal truth in this way is the key to achieving increased and durable joy, love, health, passion and fulfillment—all that we long to have in our lives.
I use a client-centered, collaborative, and holistic approach that is directed toward what you desire to receive from your treatment. I am also certified in a technique called EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) that helps clear trauma and past negative experiences. Negative past experiences (whether large or small) can stay embedded in your body, and cause considerable physical, emotional, and mental strain. If these experiences are not cleared, they will interfere with the forward motion in your life.
Together, we create a warm, nurturing and safe environment where you can feel comfortable exploring vulnerable issues and doing the healing work that you need. With my support, you can develop a more connected relationship with your true Self as you learn to embrace, honor, accept, listen to and love yourself more fully. Periodically, we will check in to see how you are doing in reaching your goals and whether we need to make changes to our strategy. Once you achieve your goals, you can decide whether there is something else you’d like to work on in our therapy or move on. Whatever you choose, you will always be welcome here. I am here to support your needs!
