Exploring options, finding answers and solutions to situations which trouble you.


Life can be challenging, and often we can find ourselves at a point where we wonder how to go on. We get stuck, feel overwhelmed and discouraged and wonder what the next step is.


No matter what your experience is at this time, if you feel like you can benefit from having a therapist collaborate with you to research stuck patterns and personal problems and create options for recovery and self-improvement, then consider contacting me. Have a look around this web site and contact me with any questions you have. I am happy to help. ▪
