Some questions people bring into therapy include the
following: How can I face crisis or significant change in my relationships or work? How might I find support for anxiety, stress, anger and depression? ? Can I think, move, sense, feel and collaborate in more holistic or integrative ways? Why am I stuck in repeated thoughts or emotional states? How can we make sense of shame or rage? How can I grieve and comfort loss? Do you have any questions you'd like to ask?

Therapy can offer a safe and secure base for important authentic reflection and connection. It’s a process that takes place in the present moment and integrates ways of thinking or behaving patterned by our past. For those returning to therapy, an integrative approach can offer a dynamic and creative way to re-consider or re-frame what could not be accessed or processed in the past. Throughout our therapeutic process, I support and encourage your strivings with dignity, humanity and compassion. If you're seeking therapy, let's talk.
