    Trauma

    Issues involving sexual, emotional, physical abuse, traumatic incidents, accidents or any perceived feelings of threat which made you feel that your survival was at risk.

    Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

    Not everyone who experiences trauma in their lives develops PTSD, but many people do. PTSD can be extremely debilitating to one’s normal level of functioning as the symptoms are intense and overwhelming. It is important to address this condition with a trained professional who can provide education as well as treatment.
  • give yourself the gift that keeps on giving

    Grief

    Surviving a loss can be devastating. This can come in the form of the death of a loved one, the end of a relationship, a miscarriage, losing one’s job, relocating, a change in status in life, etc.
  • enjoy a more joyful, productive life

    Relationship issues

    Relationships and how we interact with others is an integral part of life. When our relationships don’t work, it impacts us in devastating ways
  • develop insight, create effective coping mechanisms

    Addictions

    When we are in pain we can look for ways to shut this pain out. Alcohol, drugs, sex, food, gambling, shopping and work are all ways one can medicate oneself.
  • learn, heal and grow

    Health Challenges

    Our physical health is a precious commodity and when that is challenged in any way it can unravel our lives. Therapy can help in addressing these issues from dealing with the challenge and finding ways back to our lives, even if it means learning to live in a new way.
  • embark on your personal path of transformation

    Spirituality

    Life is a journey during which we have opportunities for growth. Our darkest moments often provide lessons which enable us to move forward in life. Looking at life from this perspective can be a rich and gratifying experience. Learning to live life with intention and consciously vs. randomly is a goal of living a spiritual life.

Why Therapy and Finding the Right Therapist

Therapy offers an opportunity to talk openly about experiences and feelings with an unbiased, caring professional. Most clients find this to be tremendously helpful as it enables them to be free of old, unhealthy beliefs and patterns which have kept them stuck in life.

In order for therapy to be successful, the client must be able to develop a trusting, respectful relationship with the therapist. Speaking truthfully about one’s concerns is the only way of getting what you want and solidifying an open, honest relationship.

It is my belief that as a therapist, one must continue to grow in order to be effective. Over the past 23 years as I have evolved, so has my practice. Hence, my clients are now getting even more of me as a result of my own personal journey. This is an important consideration in selecting a therapist because it is crucial to find someone capable of guiding you to where you need to go. Be sure to give yourself the chance to speak to your potential therapist and get a sense of how you interact.

Therapy when entered into with honesty and commitment can be life changing. It is an investment that provides dividends over and over again. I believe it is one of the most important decisions you will make in a lifetime. So go ahead and make the call. I promise you won’t regret it!
