 YOUR LIFE CAN BE EASIER, RICHER and MORE FULFILLING

Whatever challenges your life brings can be thought of as opportunities for growth, invitations to change. Everything we live through - every regret and every accomplishment, every risk and every failure, every deep attachment and every broken heart - can be approached as a chance to develop greater confidence, wisdom, connection and aliveness.  It is my privilege to accompany people through this learning process, and to shift the focus from problems and symptoms to strengths, meaning and resilience.  

 

Life is full of surprises: some are delightful,

while others are frightening and deeply painful.

 

Are you overwhelmed by a crisis or a loss of some kind, or discouraged by disappointing or destructive patterns in your life?  Maybe you've noticed a change in yourself you don't understand, or you have a critical life decision to confront.  You might be unraveling after a break-up, anxious about a new relationship, or troubled by the one you've been in for years.  Are you plagued by self-consciousness, self-doubt or fear?  Having a hard time letting go of old hurts and resentment?  Is there a part of you that you keep hidden from everyone? 

If you want more from your relationships, your work 

and your place in the world, it's time to invest in yourself.

 

Most everyone has mixed feelings about therapy; ambivalence is part of the process.  But if you're considering therapy, something in you is seeking change; that's a very good sign and I hope you'll pay attention to it.  I invite you to come in for an initial consultation - no pressure, no commitment and no judgment.

You want relief, you want to feel hopeful and you want things to change.

I get it, and i can help.

 

Yes!

 PEOPLE DO CHANGE

Effective psychotherapy is a deeply personal collaboration requiring a trusting and respectful relationship in which you can grow to be fully, comfortably yourself.  Naturally, I will listen very closely and do my best to let you know you're being seen and heard; but I also do some of the talking.  I'm an actively engaged therapist, with an informal, inquisitive and responsive style.

 

I provide direct, compassionate feedback; I'll be open about my experience and observations of you in the service of your increased self-awareness and motivation for change.  I don't just listen and nod and make the occasional sound of understanding; I am as invested as you are in knowing you, understanding you, and helping you find greater ease, hope and trust in yourself. 

I can't tell you how many times I've heard someone say, "Let's face it, people never really change."   

I disagree, and I watch people change over and over again.  The hardest part of changing is letting go of old ideas, feelings and experiences, and opening yourself to the unknown.

Yes!
