I specialize in adults and couples. I believe that what troubles us the most, isn't so much what has happened to us, but the way we have reacted to what has happened. We may have 'tapes' in our minds that tell us things about ourselves that sometimes are not helpful. I help clients work on their reactions to life and be watchful of their inner voice. I work with positive potentials I see in clients and bring those to light. In my couples work, I help clients get back what they have lost, usually because of talking without listening.
I work with adults to set them free of limiting beliefs about themselves. I believe that thoughts are choices and that we are free to make better choices about what we tell ourselves. I believe we create our world from our thoughts and our inner dialoge. I work with couples similarly.
I believe that there are traditional practices that can be very helpful such as meditation and prayer. If a client is open to it, we can explore the spiritual dimensions of life, as I believe we are body, mind and spirit and each dimension requires attention and care for optimal health.
