There is nothing more important in our human journey than to know ourselves. I believe it is the reason we are here in the first place. Learning how to deal with emotions is the way we cope in life. Trusting our self builds confidence and self-esteem. Loving our self leads to feeling how joyous it is to be who we are and leads to having healthy relationships with others. Opening up your heart to your courage, your challenges, your pain and your joy is what life is all about. Many people go through the motions of life and then wonder, “Is this all there is?” The answer is no. Life can be the most exciting, challenging and joyous adventure of your existence. In order for that to happen, we must find self love.
Therapy is also about our relationship. It is a different relationship for sure, then you will have with anyone else in your life. When you have a trusting relationship with your therapist, it will affect every relationship you have in a positive way, especially the one you have with yourself. My job is to promote that trusting relationship by earning it though listening, kindness, warmth, laughter, consistency, and sharing my wisdom.
My great joy in life is helping my patients find the answers for themselves by giving them the breadcrumbs they need to find their way out of the forest. What a joy it is for me to watch the unfolding of these beautiful beings who finally find their freedom from suffering. Treatment specialties include:
