Are you struggling? Suffering? Perhaps the difficulties stem from your job, relationship or family. Maybe your life is in a good place, but you still feel dissatisfied. Stressful behaviors or moods return, over and over. Possibly transitions have been difficult or events from the past continue to bother you. In big or even small ways, things just aren’t going right. You owe it to yourself to find a better way. When you’re ready to sit down and talk with someone who will truly listen with compassion, make an appointment.

Our minds are extraordinarily rich and powerful. Our suffering stems from the insufficient or misguided use of our minds. The essence of our work will be to help you see the ways and the reasons you habitually and unknowingly interfere with your inherent capacities. The result will be the unlocking of your potential and the attainment of the freedom to use your mind to work, love and play creatively and joyfully.
