Self-growth, chronic anxiety/depression, addictions, relational issues (e.g., family-of-origin, couples and interpersonal issues), trauma recovery (esp. complex trauma), personality adaptations, career-related issues, etc.
I have been offering guidance/counseling services for individuals, couples and families for over 25 years. My therapeutic approach is focused on facilitating mental “health,” guiding people to move from disconnection to reconnection, from polarization to balance, from fragmentation to integrated wholeness. My specialties center on trauma recovery work, especially for complex trauma, which is often manifested in chronic anxiety/depression, addictions, fragile/inflated sense of self, troubled relationships, etc. The ultimate goal of my job as a psychotherapist is to help you discover, strengthen and trust your “inner gauge,” so that you can turn to it confidently for answers without the need for my assistance.
Before you send out an appointment request, please first ask yourself, “Am I ready to do the work?” My clinical experience has repeatedly borne this out: When you are not ready for therapy, you will not be able to see or hear me, and I will not be able to experience the real you, either. Coming into therapy reluctantly, you may not only waste time, money and energy, but, eventually, feel bad about yourself for “failing” in life yet again.
However, if you are ready to embark on this mysterious journey, you will be surprised by many unexpected encounters along the way, first of all, by listening to your own inner voice. You will learn to trust yourself, realize your potentials, and release your internal power. You will, little by little, change your life from the inside out!
