Heal and grow
Therapy is a wonderful opportunity to discover new insights and heal from past hurts and disappointments, loss, or trauma (including physical abuse, sexual abuse or emotional abuse). I can help you learn ways to regulate emotions, tolerate distress, manage bereavement, or grief, and to be more at peace in your body and in the world. If you are recovering from an alcohol or drug addiction, an eating disorder or another behavioral or process addiction, I can help you maintain sobriety and begin or continue to live a balanced, healthy life.
Learn new ways to cope with stress and anxiety; decrease your anxiety levels and increase your ability to relax and enjoy life. Discover techniques to reduce obsessive or unwanted negative thoughts, whether they stem from OCD, PTSD, or generalized anxiety. Learn to increase self esteem and let go of guilt and shame. I am skilled at teaching relaxation and breathing training, as well as helping to identify and replace negative thoughts to reduce fear and tension, decrease panic attacks, and increase quality of sleep.
