What if you could start moving forward towards your goals? Imagine how your life could be.
No matter how well things are going in your life, you may sometimes wonder what stops you from achieving more. Or, your life may be a series of painful stresses and tensions from which there is limited or no relief.
Psychotherapy can support you moving towards a more fulfilling life.
Psychotherapy is a process that can help you express yourself more successfully in the world and enjoy life more fully. Often the stresses of the world cause a part of our psyche to overload or freeze up. This overloading can be experienced as anxiety, depression, confusion or lack of clarity. Other times it is experienced as procrastinating – avoiding moving forward towards hopes, dreams and the tasks of daily life. Therapy helps you move forward — restoring your wholeness and increasing your enjoyment of life.
I have worked with individuals, couples and families for over 20 years. While working in private practice for many years, I previously worked in a variety of mental health related agencies. I have been on staff at residential programs for adults, young adults, adolescents, and children. I previously directed a residential treatment program for severely disturbed adolescents called Bridges of Sonoma.
With a blend of wisdom, understanding, intuition and humor — we can work together to help you achieve your dreams and goals.
The Benefits of Therapy
Doing therapy may result in
- a decrease of anxiety
- lifting of depression
- improved sense of well-being
- improved relationships
- improved communication with others
- more awareness of self
- a sense of feeling more grounded and stable
In psychotherapy you will find a safe place to talk about the things that are the most important to you.
Would you like to feel calmer while experiencing more satisfaction in your life, and have closer connections with your loved ones, friends and co-workers? Psychotherapy can be your gateway to a life with more happiness and balance. I am experienced at helping you understand and utilize your strengths as a foundation to help create the life you desire.
This isn’t a magical cure – walking this path may take some time, energy and focus. Yet the rewards can be great. For some, the goals are more about resolving old hurts and trauma – for others, improving relationship skills, and communication skills. In all cases, my aim is to increase your ability to create the life you want.
