"Hello, I know seeking out a therapist is a bit intimidating and an important decision. I provide a warm environment, inviting my clients to get acquainted with themselves on a deeper level. In this process, healthy changes can manifest and possibilities that have seemed out of reach can begin to be considered and worked towards. Therapy is now available via Zoom. I particularly like to help clients to help themselves get unstuck from unhealthy patterns as well as getting their energy flowing positively and creatively. Working collaboratively we can identify what is blocking you from getting to where you want to be in your life. "

Infertility sends ripples through all aspects of our lives, affecting us in ways we don't expect. Infertility makes it difficult for us to function in our relationships and at work. It can stress us out, making what used to be normal, suddenly difficult. After all, life goes on all around us while our life seems on hold because we're not having a baby.

"If life were simple, there would be less need for confessional booths, principals' offices and psychotherapy. Things happen along the way, get set aside, accumulate and catch up. Some "stuff" gets passed from one generation to the next. Many people delay indefinitely effectively dealing with difficulties, pass them on to others or deny they exist entirely. When you are ready to sort through such matters give me a call. I am curious, patient and enjoy helping others move forward. I share observations and clarify situations while clients work to increase enjoyment of life. It might be easier than you think."

"In many ways good psychotherapy is like a successful remodel, frequently resulting in a stronger and more spacious sense of one's self, lovely new rooms, remarkable views and better access to the world outside (and in). The journey of self-discovery takes courage, but increasing one's awareness of old limitations and obstacles, and developing the ability to gently and carefully dismantle and rebuild where necessary is incredibly rewarding -- often beyond what we can imagine. I believe that it's a collaborative journey on which we embark, moving together towards creating a more fulfilling and rewarding life for you."

Much of the work I do with people in therapy involves helping them realize the nature of those compromises and making a determination as to whether the choices they had to make as children continue to be the most effective course for them as adults. I help people have insight into their behavior in relationships at work, with friends and family so that they may decide what aspects of these interactions they want to keep and which they may want to modify."
