Profession: Clinical Social Worker/Therapist
Services: Psychotherapy/Counseling
Practice Description: Psychotherapy will help you develop self-awareness and deepen your understanding of yourself. Though self-understanding you will come to realize that you already have everything you need to manage your life and current distress. Your inner resources include your thoughts, feelings and overall senses. They provide valuable information that will help you better manage difficult emotions, make important life decisions and move towards the goals you set for yourself.

Together we will help you discover and recover how you truly feel and think, as well as better understand what motivates you to act or not. Through this process, you may discover that your symptoms of anxiety are related to feelings that have been buried, thwarted or are difficult to express. This may also be a source of your sadness, depression or deep sense of isolation from yourself and others. By acknowledging what is happening within you, you will learn to process and integrate those feelings so that they can be expressed more fully and authentically.

I have more than 25 years of experience helping people resolve problems with low self-esteem, body image issues, relationship problems, loss through separations, illness or death, and work-related issues. I work with the intention to be curious, informative, inquisitive and accepting so that you have room to find out more about yourself in a safe space. And along the way, it’s important to talk about how you’re feeling about the process, the space and the relationship.

Through this process, your innate abilities, talents and strengths will have room to blossom, your human foibles will feel more acceptable and you’ll live more freely and confidently, even in times of difficulty.
