In a compassionate and genuine relationship, I will help you explore your self and your relationships in a way that is deeply meaningful and transformative.
Everybody has strengths and creative problem solving abilities. Sometimes though we can struggle to find our way or cope appropriately. Therapy can be a safe place to explore our lives in order to experience more freedom.
Relationships can be very complicated as well as very rewarding. In a safe and supported environment we will explore your relationship and where you are finding conflict, tension, and miscommunication.
Parenting has changed. Because of this, many parents have lost trust in their own intuition. With a mixture of old and new ways of parenting, we will explore how you can take back control of your family system.
Addictions are usually solutions to living life well. They are complex manifestations of ignoring ourselves and finding satisfaction wherever we can find it. Together we will explore your addiction and its purpose.
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
Perfection is shallow, unreal, and fatally uninteresting.
The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.
I help my clients learn how to more fully experience themselves, accept who they are, and gain a better conscious awareness of their lives. It is not always easy to know how to listen to one’s self when there are so many other competing thoughts and motivations from outside forces. Finding comfort in one’s own skin, feeling confident, and trusting your self is a positive outcome of counselling and therapy. We are also relational beings who need to learn how to love and give to others without losing ourselves. It is this fine line that is not always easy to walk but essential to healthy living with others.
In therapy with me you will have the opportunity to explore your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, as well as your relationships, goals, and dreams. We may also explore your family of origin, your job, or your spiritual life, amongst others. Once a person can more fully experience and accept their way of being in the world, the easier to deal with the “problems” for which they seek therapy.
