He believes that each one of us has the potential to live a happy, meaningful life, full of purpose, creativity and self-expression.

  • Depression
  • Anxiety

Often, a lack of drive, passion, or a sense of purpose can take the joy out of our lives; particularly, when accompanied by grieving or depression. Large or frequent life changes can leave us feeling anxious and overwhelmed, leading to difficulties in unrelated areas the most vulnerable of which are our relationships and our creativity. This is all part of what makes us human and these are the issues that we bring to Therapy so that we can address them and move forward into a life full of meaning and joy.
