When you are unhappy, stressed, overwhelmed or confused about what to do next; let me help you. It often helps just to be able to talk to someone impartial who will keep your struggles private, discrete and confidential. I believe in empowering the individual. Together, we will look at what is going on in your life that doesn't seem to be working. Opening up can be difficult so I believe in being respectful, supportive and caring while trying to get to know the real you. I will help you gain insight into your issues by looking at how they developed and what purpose they have served. You will decide what changes you wish to make. We will look at your core beliefs. These beliefs, often developed at an early age, and may be interfering in your happiness. Collectively, we will work on building positive beliefs that will change the course of your life for the better. Having someone there to listen, support, understand, help and guide you can sometimes all we really need to start to change. No one can change the past but each day is a new beginning.
