Welcome to my website.

Talk therapy can be helpful in many ways.  Sometimes it helps you process significant difficulties interfering with happiness.  At other times,  the process is more subtle and focuses on ways to improve your life, bringing it closer to what you want.   Both uses result in personal growth.

Counseling can help you to better understand your feelings, thoughts, motivations, behavior and relationships.    The goal of better self understanding is to be in more deliberate control of your decisions and actions.  Counseling works by creating  neurological changes in your brain over time that affect your experience in relationships and family or job situations.
