Message to clients

You've been thinking about therapy for a while. The stress and pressure of life weigh on you. You want to feel better, and yet, you may not know how to go about changing anything. Everything seems all tangled up. Your relationship suffers. You are not as passionate about your work, family, and friends. A sense of guilt, sadness, anxiety, depression become surmounting at times.

But therapy seems a little too extreme. You might think to yourself: "I"m not that bad! I can handle this. I need to push through it." "I need to stop being lazy. I have to get back on track." The good news is that therapy is for everyone!

I work with people from all walks of life with all types of issues. In our session together, you will discover the self-defeating thoughts and emotions that create patterns in your life. My inside-out 6 steps will guide you to identify patterns that hold you back. I will guide you to express yourself fully so you can enjoy life again.


Self-esteem - Cultivating self-compassion, assertiveness, and confidence; developing ways to reduce suffering, anxiety, social withdrawal, and self-neglect
