If you seem to be stuck in a pattern you do not like, or are experiencing traumatic or aggravating situations, Therapy and Relationship Coaching can be helpful.
To start, relax on my zen green sofa, and simply tell me what's going on. As you hear yourself talking about everything, clarifications and insights will begin to emerge. Symptoms and negative emotions start to ease, and you may dare to be hopeful again.
If you sometimes feel like you're going crazy, and don't know what to do, I'll probably tell you, "You know what, you're not that crazy at all! So many people are going through the same situation. You are a work in progress."

I'm here to help you with that.
