"Change can be scary! Yet, life is continual change. Often, even if we feel we need changes in our lives, we hold on fiercely to the comfort of the way life has always been. We know that healthy relationships make for healthy lives. And often we work on our relationships with others and forget the most important relationship is with self. And that can be a complicated relationship."

"In Psychotherapy, it is the relationship between the patient and the therapist that allows for the patient to search for understanding into the nature of their difficulties. It is within the safety, confidentiality and understanding acceptance that the patient is encouraged to reveal intimate parts of themselves that allow the therapist to identify characteristic problems and patterns of behavior. Seemingly unexplainable behavior, thought patterns and symptoms turn out to have identifiable meanings beyond the awareness of the patient. Psychodynamic psychotherapy is aimed at personality changing goals and symptom relieving efforts. The patient is always in control of the therapeutic process."

"You always want what is best for your children. When they struggle, you may feel worried or frustrated, even blame yourself. Do you ever feel like you are missing pieces? Raising healthy well-adjusted children is often an overwhelming task. The picture can change completely when a child has experienced trauma or has special needs. Does your child seem anxious or fearful out of context? Has their behavior changed drastically? It may be difficult or near impossible to understand the behaviors of a child with these experiences. All of these things may be unknown territory and stressful for parents. It can be exhausting to manage."

"The clients I serve are often at a crossroads in their life story and unsure of how to close one chapter and begin anew. Clients I enjoy working with recognize that counseling continues outside of the session in self reflection, exploring behavior change, and shifting how we think and relate to ourselves. I find that counseling helps meet goals and needs as diverse as the client, and sometimes goals arise throughout the course of the relationship. No one needs a "good reason" to come to counseling, for the desire to reach out and try will always be sufficient. "
