"With understanding and compassion,
you will be able to heal the wounds in your heart
and the wounds of the world." - Thich Nhat Hanh
Are you struggling with significant emotional pain, worrisome and racing thoughts, and physical discomfort? Are you trying to manage your experience alone or within a limited or damaged support network? You may be experiencing a sense of feeling disconnected from those you love and the life you want for yourself. You have taken a brave first step in considering counseling. Today you are one step closer to feeling empowered and on a positive path to growth and well-being.
As a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Certified Gestalt therapist, my goal is to help you uncover your true potential and lead a life that is worth celebrating. By applying complementary therapy approaches and techniques, we will unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life. In a supportive environment you will be encouraged to explore your emotional needs, self-damaging thought processes, and your related physical experience through body awareness. We will work together to understand and overcome the barriers that limit your full potential.
I take an open-minded approach to client wellness and consider each client's unique experience of self, personal relationships, work life, family traditions, and cultural and spiritual beliefs. Your experience of the "here and now" will be explored so that strengths may be identified, experienced, and celebrated and obstacles that interfere with your opportunity to experience the fullness of the moment come into awareness.
If you're looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or you're just ready to move in a new direction in your life, I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals.
