Stress is a guaranteed part of life, but how we manage that stress is the challenge. Are you struggling with the balance of your life demands and the effect that disequilibrium has on your body, mind and soul? You can find that stability again. Perhaps you will experience stability for the very first time in your life!
I am committed to providing a safe, caring therapeutic alliance that nurtures the development of long-lasting, beneficial change. Your exploration of present struggles, past experiences, relationships, and responses takes time and may even be painful to experience. Yet, through this process, clients often live happier, healthier and more productive lives as an outcome. I encourage you to take a chance and see what positive transformation may occur.
