The familiar life horizon has been outgrown; the old concepts, ideals, and emotional patterns no longer fit; the time for the passing of a threshold is at hand (Joseph Campbell).
Life can be scary at times and we often long for a friend or guide to walk with us through the dark places. Such times often come about because of some fateful blow, be it illness, death, betrayal, divorce or unemployment. Everything that gave us pleasure, that invested life with meaning, is no longer valid, is lost. The sun has gone down, depression has set in, and nothing helps. Such dark times have sometimes been long brewing in the unconscious, and are coming up now for a reason. Questions arise such as "Who am I really?" "What is life about?" "Am I strong enough to get through this?" I have been counseling individuals and couples for over 25 years and offer my help to you as you search for answers to life's toughest problems in order to live a life worth celebrating.
In my own journey to healing and self awareness, I discovered that we each have an innate potential to achieve wholeness. In our work we will explore why old patterns of behavior are no longer working, as well as why assumed roles we took in our family of origin are outdated and limiting. In addition to traditional psychotherapy, I may also work with your dreams and issues related to the body, mind and spirit connection. All of these avenues will provide a new light to guide you out of the confusion that life often brings.
