I believe that you can have a similar experience - an experience that you will feel understood and empowered. Part of the reason that makes therapy work is because as a therapist, I am non-judgmental, emphatic, compassionate, and genuine.

This perspective encompasses and acknowledges the entire person with whom I am working, including the physical, intellectual, emotional, interpersonal and spiritual well being of the client. No one seeking help is turned away due to the condition from which they are suffering. My goal for each client is to provide a safe, trusting space so that healing and growth can be experienced."

"Our efforts to protect ourselves from painful feelings often lead to greater suffering. Fleeing from our emotional truth, we unconsciously perpetuate the very distress we seek to avoid, repeating unhealthy relationships or self-destructive patterns of living. We may find ourselves overwhelmed by anxiety, anger, despair or emptiness, feeling like our lives are not our own. It takes courage to explore our feeling-life and face the emotional truth of our past and present. I offer a safe, reliable and uniquely human environment in which to cultivate future possibilities of integration, spontaneity, creativity and self-realization, to fully inhabit life."
