Life experiences often disrupt our sense of wholeness, leaving us feeling unable to find our way back to ourselves. When this happens, our lives and our relationships can become difficult, or even unbearable. We view our work with you as reuniting with that innate wisdom, so you can experience more of the love, connection and happiness that is your birthright. Together we will develop a deep knowing of who you are and what you stand for. We will help you identify and shift patterns that are blocking you from fully accessing your personal power, saying yes to happiness in your life and creating relationships that are nuturing, close and satisfying. We are committed to helping you identify and work towards creating the life you want and deserve.
Individual therapy can help you:
Develop new perspectives and life skills so that you can free yourself from habitual patterns of anxiety, depression, and self-criticism.
Reclaim your sense of personal power. Learn to take responsibility and move forward in your life rather than feeling stuck, helpless and hopeless.
Find ways to relate to emotional or physical suffering so that inevitable suffering brings wisdom & compassion rather than depression & anger.
Improve the quality of your relationships by developing more life affirming behaviors.
Provide you with a set scheduled time to attend to your own needs and regain your perspective.
