**LIFE IS A CHALLENGE THAT WE ARE MEANT TO MEET**
This challenge can be difficult if you find yourself overcome by emotion, overwhelmed by grief, caught in the grip of depression or anxiety or feel lost in your life. Psychotherapy will give you the opportunity to work through and heal those places in your life that keep you from living the life that you desire.A full psychotherapeutic experience involves freeing our inner resources;to live fulfilling lives. Through talking together, exploring patterns in your life and recognizing you have an unconscious that may be affecting you in ways you do not understand; we will move forward toward the life that you envision for yourself.
I use dream interpretation and therapeutic trance as additional tools to talk therapy. I have studied grief counselling.
