Do you desire a better, fuller life filled with joy, love, security and peace? Are you in crisis, struggling with depression, overwhelmed by anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, parent child relationship issues, isolation, and or low self-esteem. Is it your intention to develop a better sense of what your place in life is meant to be, better self esteem, which usually translates into more satisfying love relationships, better relationships with family and friends? Of course you do. Together, we can explore your internal world and, who you are, to understand what you need to develop as a vibrant, human being.

I also work with couples as an Emotionally Focussed Therapist (EFT) Together, we uncover what causes your particular marital distress and discover the negative cycles within your pattern of interaction. EFT helps couples rediscover that sense of safety and love. Which, I believe, is how it should be.

My intention for my practice, is to assist you to effect changes, both internally and externally, towards a more satisfying and authentic life. This is a very important process and we need to talk to see if we are well suited. Taking that first step is often the most difficult.
