Validation, Support, Insight, Guidance, and Tools

Individual counseling provides a safe environment to discuss any uncomfortable or painful issues. In this safe space is where you will receive validation, support, insight, guidance, and tools to help you live a happier, healthier, and more productive life. If you are feeling any of the following listed below, please don’t hesitate to call for help – there is a lot of strength in asking for help:

  • Stuck in a cycle of being nice, followed by getting angry because your needs aren't being met, then shutting down?
  • Not being able to say no and feeling drained by taking care of others?
  • Worry too much about what others think or find yourself constantly comparing yourself to others?
  • Problems don’t seem to change despite your efforts and help from family and friends?
  • Feeling overwhelmed and/or hopeless about a situation?
  • Finding it difficult to concentrate or carry out everyday activities?
  • Cannot stop worrying or feeling constantly on edge?
  • Drinking too much alcohol, using drugs, sex or relationships that are harming you or others?


Healing comes from one’s willingness to explore and feel the emotions that are related to both present and past circumstances. Unexamined feelings can often lead to unwanted or painful symptoms. Life is a prism- holding it up and examining all sides brings awareness and freedom from limited thoughts and beliefs about yourself and/or situations. Grieving about what should have been or should happen releases stuck emotions, which in turn create space for new, positive thoughts, emotions and behaviors. I typically work from Body/Mind Psychotherapy approach, which is a somatic-cognitive approach to therapy that incorporates elements of physiology, psychotherapy, and mindfulness. Have you ever heard of the saying, "the issues are in the tissues?" Stress and trauma not only affect the brain, but also the nervous system, which can result in a whole range of physical symptoms - this is why it is essential to engage not only the mind, but the body to heal.
