I strive to help individuals break free from destructive patterns, improve their self-esteem, improve their relationships, and make healthier life choices. I am here to assist you in developing a plan to make these changes.
The lotus blossom has long been a symbol of rebirth, creation, and transformation in many mythologies. It begins as a tiny plant growing from the murky, sticky mud at the bottom of a pond. As it grows and continues to grow toward the light, it develops into a beautiful, exotic flower. At night it closes and sinks back into the water; at dawn it rises and reopens.
The process of psychotherapy can be very similar to the life of the lotus blossom. When people enter therapy, they bring issues that can feel sticky and messy. As the process develops, and as individuals gain insight into their problems, newer, more illuminated aspects of themselves can emerge.
