Difficulties, problems and failures are normal aspects of life and sometimes we don’t understand or relate to them very well. We formulate ideas, notions and perceptions about how life should, but inevitably life does get rocky from time to time. Counseling can offer the additional insight for self-discovery and newfound understanding. Eventually through a deeper understanding of our patterns and storylines more freedom and liberation is possible for finding our best self. I consider my skill set to be grounded in the philosophy of “Mindfullness” and I have experience in general mental health issues, drug and alcohol abuse/ dependence, process addictions, somatic experiencing for trauma, and relationship issues. I believe much of what happens to us as people we come into honestly. Understanding the storylines of our life can be painful at times and qualified professionals can be a tremendous resource and help. No shame in seeking counsel.
