"Psychotherapy is fundamentally about discovering a deeper sense of personal meaning, self-understanding, and self-acceptance. Effective therapy can help to cultivate a reflective capacity that enriches connections with oneself and others, cultivating the tools we need to navigate life's many challenges. I work with those facing various challenges and life transitions including grief and loss, experiences with anxiety and depression, trauma, relationship and/ or identity issues, work and/or school issues, as well as those looking to enter a more exploratory therapy."

"Often when an individual or couple is seeking out a therapist they're in the midst of a significant transition or challenge that can feel overwhelming. Paradoxically, I believe this is often the time in which the greatest change is possible. By exploring issues through a multi-layered approach, we will identify the deeper truths and lessons these challenges are presenting. By lending tools and feedback, I assist my clients in having a different relationship with their challenges; thus moving away from constriction into conscious growth and empowerment."

"There are usually two types of reasons people come into therapy. One is that find themselves making the same mistakes over and over again and they want to do something different, but are just not sure how. The other is that they have been carrying around a deep pain in their life that they want to resolve. Often these things are connected. This is why I work with you on two levels.
