About My Clients

Tired of carrying around your anxiety and depression every day? Does it feel like you’re wearing a full backpack all the time? Do work and relationships add to your life or just use up your energy? If you’re tired of life feeling heavy, I can help you uncover and resolve the reasons why. Gaining new information to make manageable change in life lightens our daily burden and improves relationships, work, and life. Are you ready to take off that backpack and live less seriously and more freely?

My Background and Approach

The tools and information I provide are tools I have perfected over my career helping myself and people just like you. My goal is for you to have at least 5 different tools you can carry with you at all times. I am direct and solutions-focused. We’ll work collaboratively to get to the root cause of the problems you want to solve. This ensures that you don’t have to keep revisiting the same old issues; you don’t have to keep carrying the weight of the past. Understanding the fullness and goodness of you is the door to peaceful transformation. I can’t guarantee you’ll always be happy, but based on personal experience and working with people like you, I believe you can be peaceful 98% of the time.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe we are all born as good people and that there is no limit to human capacity. We develop stress in life because of unhealthy learned behaviors picked up along the way—these can be unlearned. My family taught me how to be present for people. Given unconditional love and acceptance, I offer this to my clients. You will see and understand your true human capacity and goodness. Seeking my own therapy, coaching, learning, and personal growth, I learned to manage stress, anxiety, relationships, alcohol consumption, and sadness in my work and life. I learned to live authentically in how I care for myself and treat others, at work in the diverse roles and relationships in which we engage, and in personal relationships with significant others, children, family, and friends. If you’re tired of carrying around the weight of your anxiety, depression, relationship issues, or substance use, please contact me, so we can work together to create the life you really desire.
