Life is rich and complex — and it can be challenging. By its very nature we are always breaking new ground.
There is no formula, no rule book. We are each an individual, unique work in progress: Each life is a living sculpture.
We also get stuck.
Who are you?
Have you lived through experiences and relationships that you can not make sense of?
Have you learned to keep yourself small by veiling who you are or desensitizing how you feel?
Are you allowing your life to remain confused or small, whether that be through unfulfilling work, a mournful marriage, or any kind of addiction because you can not see another way through?
Perhaps you are feeling plain uninspired, wanting more from life or, on the flip side, you're feeling out of control?
Do you feel caught in your head but wish to live from your heart?
Whether you feel confused, immobilized, overwhelmed, counseling can offer breakthrough and relief.
If you need support and guidance through a challenging situation or you're just ready to move in a new direction,
call me. I feel confident that I can help you achieve your goals.
How far will you go?
I have noticed that all too often people easily identify with their problems and neurosis, but are less consciously aware of their gifts and talents. The challenges, the hurdles, the disappointments, along with your gifts and accomplishments all unfold as you proceed through life. It may be difficult to imagine your life as a divine work of art, but that is indeed what it is.
Whether from trauma, developmental wounding or from the simple fact of your being human,
your difficulties can be navigated and re-membered. Your vulnerabilities and sensitivities, the very things we often learned to hide and defend against, allow you to know yourself and the world. As we repair and support your vulnerability, you will discover that rather than reflecting personal failure, your sensitivities are a gift.
They give birth to your artistry.
Life, like art, can be messy, but your wounds can be healed and your freedom restored
Are you ready?
Come as you are
In my practice all parts parts of you are welcomed, appreciated, loved.
If you feel unsure, timid or scared, bring that.
If you are angry, bring it.
Bring the tough guys, the confused, the dreamers, the screamers and the lovers. Bring them all. I'm good with that.
I do not carry judgement. I do have lots of acceptance and compassion.
You will discover the hidden beliefs and conclusions that you may be carrying in your heart and mind but try to push away for fear that they may be either unacceptable or more than you can handle.
I can hold the space for you. I can support you right where you are.
I offer a steadfast love for your unique and personal process and an unwavering commitment to your transformation. Together we will grow hope and empowerment.

This is what therapy and religion were for—letting the new crash into us like a wave that finally wakes us up”.
Choosing a counselor is an important decision that asks for the right fit. I offer a free consultation for your questions or as a way of getting to know one another.
