What is challenging and holding you back, right now? 

Is it a recent stressor or problem that you just can't seem to change?  

Are you having women's health issues or dealing with chronic illness that are causing you pain, worry, and frustration?

Do you have past trauma memories that are intruding in your mind, making it difficult for you to feel grounded and at peace today? 

Have you experienced an incredible loss of someone you love and you are mourning?

Is your relationship causing you a lot of conflict and stress?

Would you like to feel competent, happy, wise, healthy and free?

Struggling through these types of difficult experiences and dealing with painful feelings is something that you do not need to do alone. However, contemplating going to counseling for the first time, or returning to therapy to work on some new or old issues is an anxiety provoking process. It is easy to tell ourselves that we don't have time, we'll be okay without the help, or we can't afford it. However, there is something happening for you right now that brought you to this place at this moment, as you are reading this message. I encourage you to think about what you really need and what you are searching to find. Whatever is happening for you, I imagine you have a need and interest in talking to someone about it and receiving some encouragement and support.  

I will strive to develop a caring and supportive relationship with you, and provide a place where you can explore all of the questions, thoughts, struggles, feelings, and emotions that you have about your particular life challenges and experiences. Sometimes when we feel the most alone, it is the exact time that we need to reach out and ask for help. You owe it to yourself to take care of yourself and to work through whatever is holding you back from fully experiencing the beauty and joy that you deserve.
