Finding a sense of emotional balance can be challenging, if not daunting. It can sometimes
feel as if everyone else has the “answer” and you’re the only one who can’t make
things happen – whether it’s having difficulty establishing and/or maintaining
meaningful relationships, or finding work that is both gratifying and
You may be 20-something and struggling to start out, or 30-something and still searching, or in your 40’s, 50’s or older and don’t know why you continue to feel that somehow things aren’t coming together. Or perhaps you did find what you wanted and experienced that sense of well being, but then suffered some life-changing event (the death of a loved one, the loss of a job, divorce, a serious illness), and you can’t seem to shake those feelings of sadness, alienation and longing for what you once had. You might feel overwhelmed by anxiety or stuck in the rut of depression; or you might find yourself over-eating or drinking more than you should; or maybe you’ve found a quick fix in sex or drugs or pornography. Perhaps you’ve been aware that you’re having difficulty but you can’t even put your finger on what’s wrong. You’ve just hoped you’d get over it, or thought you could solve it on your own. But nothing seems to have worked.
Often, by the time people come into therapy, they’ve tried to fix the problem themselves, but the tools they have at their disposal, tools that may have helped in the past, are no longer effective.
That’s when another set of eyes and ears can help you find new answers to old problems.
I believe that therapy is a way of restoring emotional balance. Through active listening, empathy and reflection I try to help you identify what’s creating your struggle so that together we can
work on removing the obstacles to your fulfillment.
