Message to clients

On a personal note –

I know what it is like to live with stress and anxiety. And I know what it’s like to conquer adversity, to recover from difficult times and to not just heal, but grow. Over the years, I experienced how engaging in therapy, participating in groups, and developing new ways of coping can bring about dramatic changes. None of us needs to live with a level of distress that leaves us feeling bewildered, overwhelmed, or confused about what to do. My personal experience with psychotherapy and mindfulness meditation, as well as my years of experience providing therapy to others has taught me so much. I know that making changes in our thoughts and behaviors can decrease difficulties and increase a sense of well being; leading to less stress and more success.
