If you are struggling to overcome painful problems or you simply want to develop your potential and live a fuller life, it can be helpful to have a caring, knowledgeable and skillful person to talk to. That is what I offer. I will make sure you feel seen, heard and appreciated as a unique individual in all of your richness and complexity. While I will help you understand the nature and origins of your problems, I will also help you see and use all of your strengths and talents toward making the life you want.
Psychotherapy and life coaching do have some things in common, but they are different in their emphasis and the methods they use. If we work together in psychotherapy, I will help you understand and resolve difficult issues that are getting in the way of feeling good and functioning in your daily life. If you don't have any major issues that are causing significant distress, but you want more joy and satisfaction in your life, then life coaching would be our approach. If you are not sure which approach is best for you, we can discuss it and decide together. I even offer a free initial consultation if required.
