The alarm goes off and you feel "blah". You want to hit the snooze button and lay under the covers for a few more minutes. Your mind starts racing, you start panicking and you start dreading the day before you're barely awake yet. You know that there is more to life and you want something different but you don't know what to do, you don't feel like you have a choice and you are scared to take the next steps. You have tried to figure things out on your own, but you struggle and you know that you need help but you don't really want to admit it. You hear the negative voices in your head, your own voice, the voice of a parent, a loved one, a boss, telling you that you're no good, telling you you can't do this or to stop whining and be grateful. You are anxious, stressed, dealing with past childhood memories or traumas and overwhelmed by current life responsibilities. You have no one to talk to because you are ashamed or feeling guilty about your thoughts or what might come out. I can help.

I have been trained extensively in Sandplay and EMDR as well as being a Registered Yoga Instructor. I believe that by using creative modalities such as Sand, Mindfulness breathing, journaling, Dreamwork and Tapping we can get to the direct route of your problems and alleviate suffering. Years of maladaptive behavior can often be changed in weeks or months.
