I believe everyone has a story to tell. Unfortunately, we may get caught-up with what "could have been" or focus on what "can't be". Both are the platforms for negative-based thinking. Together we will work to address your concerns so that your past or future will not be determined by "what if's" but rather "what I CHOOSE " this will be achieved through changing perceptions in pattern-like behavior that results in the same thing-over and over again. You are already taking a step towards change. Now reach-out and lets start creating a better tomorrow-TODAY. ...

Not feeling like yourself? Are there are things you are noticing about yourself that are telling you that things aren't right? Maybe relationship problems don't seem to be smoothing over the way they used to. When you are going through a hard time it can be filled with stress and emptiness. There’s nothing worse than being alone, without clarity on where to go and what to do. We get stuck in a funk, a place we have been before and we feel grim about things changing for better. I'm a therapist that provides a substantial amount of encouragement and support to m...
