Hello, and thank you for visiting my site.
I very much look forward to connecting with you.
Feeling stressed, sad, angry or anxious are normal reactions to too much pressure, lack of control or not knowing how to cope. Sometimes emotions can be overwhelming and frightening. When challenges persist, and if they seem to block you from living a positive and satisfying life, you might wish to seek help in finding solutions that can bring you and/or your loved ones back on track. You might ask How do I get where I want to go? How can I live with the pain?

At times the arts can effectively facilitate verbal expression. Artistic experience is not necessary at all, as the process is more important than the product.
