Profession: Marriage and Family Therapist
Services: Psychotherapy/Counseling
Practice Description: It is not about trying harder. Do you relax just a bit when you read those words? Maybe you feel a little relief. I understand what that is about and I want to help.

You may feel sometimes that if you just do what you should and get it right, then you will be happy. If you work harder, someone will finally get it right for you or maybe you will feel that you matter. It is really painful to be trying so hard and yet not be happy.

You are not alone in feeling this way. Frustration, anxiety, fear, anger and depression arise since the answers frequently do not come in the way that we are told or taught that they do. Getting it right and being happy in any area of your life - love, work, friends, family, spirit - is not about trying harder.

At this point, finding solutions starts with just being willing to believe that there is another way. Stopping to clean, dress and stitch up your emotional injuries is a key step toward attaining the life that you want. Counseling can help you improve your relationship with your self and others.

I work with people who suspect that it is not enough to do the right thing for everyone else and who are unhappy with some or all of their lives. If your life is not working for you, I offer hope and help when you are tired of trying harder and want more from your relationships. You can live in a way that feels wonderful to you. All that is required is that you be willing to consider that there is another way to be and know that you do not have to find your way alone. It would be a privilege for me to hear about what is going on in your life. Don't wait another day.
