Do you wonder if there’s more to life than the problems weighing you down? Maybe you want to enjoy special moments but instead, you feel distracted by worry or memories of the past. Perhaps you are surrounded by breathtaking beauty or the connection of loved ones but you can’t quite take it in. Instead, you feel as if something is wrong. Something is missing. What happened to joy?
What happened to your sense of possibility and hope?
As a contemplative psychotherapist, I invite you to work with the power of the present moment and your natural capacity for healing and change. Many of our challenges stem from unconscious habitual patterns and beliefs that we accumulate throughout life. Counseling can help you explore what is holding you back from the life you deserve. When you are fully aware of how you are and what you do, you can begin to respond—rather than react—to even the most challenging experiences. You can discover your natural wisdom and power, work through obstacles and move ahead. Most importantly, you can become whole and live life fully.
I address painful life patterns, such as anxiety, addiction and compulsion. I specialize in resolving difficult memories of stressful life events and trauma. The very first step in doing so is to help you reflect on lifestyle choices and habits. Many people also benefit by improving emotional regulation skills. Ultimately, when you are ready, I help you work to resolve parts of your past that influence how you experience life in the present. Through this work you can grow from these past experiences rather than be haunted by them. Let me be your guide, consultant or mentor as you work with the complexities of living in the twenty first century.
