Depression, imbalance, disconnection from the self—however it’s defined, you feel that something isn’t right. Maybe anxiety invades your body and mind, leaving you scattered and defeated. I’d like to help you understand these issues by recognizing their source. Getting used to pain isn’t the same as figuring out why it’s happening.
By building awareness and gaining insight, you unlock a process of growth and change. The most meaningful progress is made when you go inward. The way toward authenticity is filled with challenges, but crossing the barriers within is the most profound work you can do in your life.
Confronting trauma is a part of development. You may have learned that trauma comes in many forms. Many people live their whole lives without really dealing with it. There is a lot of uncertainty involved with making sense of your past. During these crucial explorations, you need the support that only an understanding and affirming relationship can provide.
