If you answered yes to one or more of these questions, then counseling may be beneficial to you.

Therapy can help you work through the challenges you are having and assist you in living a more rewarding, fulfilling life. Working with the right therapist is very important. Each therapist has different strengths, specialties, and ways of working with clients.

My approach is heart-centered and empowering. I provide a safe and loving space for people to express themselves and work towards healing and creating more peace in their lives. I work from a psychodynamic approach which helps people in healing their present situation by looking at its connections to the past. This approach is beneficial because it not only helps you with your current problems, it will also help you avoid re-creating them in your future relationships.

The Lotus flower is regarded in many different cultures as a symbol of purity, enlightenment, self-regeneration and rebirth. Its characteristics are a perfect analogy for the human condition: even when its roots are in the dirtiest waters, the Lotus produces the most beautiful flower.
