I like to slow things down and help you take a closer look at your patterns of thinking and behaving to really get a better understanding of your motivations, obstacles, and needs. I work with you to find ways to support those patterns that are helpful, and change those patterns that keep you stuck and are causing difficulty. I concentrate on your strengths while offering perspective and compassion for your struggles. I encourage you to begin looking at yourself with curiosity, rather than criticism. I also help you to find new ways to meet your needs and cope with difficulties when they arise. With this guidance and support, you can start to understand yourself better and recognize your own potential. You can stop caring so much about what others think and stop hiding. You can start to feel more hopeful, satisfied, confident, and empowered to pursue your goals and live the life you want for yourself.
