I believe that as human beings we are constantly being challenged by life to stand up to our fears and learn how to be true to ourselves. Counseling is helpful, often times critical, during times of crisis when a person's inner strength has become overwhelmed, confused or blocked by the stormy issues of life. Resolving these issues is a very complex matter which involves great care and skill, skills such as: processing intense emotions, healing traumatic memories, correcting obsolete negative (fear-based) beliefs about oneself and communicating assertively.
My purpose as a therapist is to provide you with a safe nonjudgmental space where you can honestly face your problems and explore hidden inner resources.
With increased awareness and skill in moving through the maze of thought and emotion, you can expect relief from distress, true empowerment and the freedom of choice you are seeking.
