"Each of us has had periods of struggle or times of dissatisfaction in our lives; or perhaps a desire for greater personal well-being. The decision to seek therapy may be the result of experiencing depression, anxiety, facing challenging life transitions, relationship difficulties, or having experienced traumatic events. Sometimes we do not know precisely what changes we are seeking. Whatever the motivation, I believe therapy can be helpful in symptom reduction, and more profoundly, can initiate deeper changes and growth. I believe in figuring out what is right with you, enabling you to call upon your innate strength and wisdom."

"You look like you have it all together: your success, the way you are with people. It looks perfect. Except you know the truth: Most of the time you're exhausted. Keeping up this facade of perfection is draining your energy. And no matter how much you achieve, you still hear those internal voices saying that you're not good enough, strong enough, or smart enough. This leads to a feeling of going through the motions without actually enjoying life and a fear that it could all fall apart at any moment. No wonder you feel exhausted all the time. Holding it all together with a smile is hard work."

"If you or your child suffer from OCD or other anxiety disorders, you're not alone. Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness, yet most sufferers don't receive proper, evidence-based treatment. OCD/anxiety can cause problems socially, academically, professionally, and create chaos with family members. The good news is that there is help. Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) has repeatedly shown to be the most effective approach for defeating OCD and anxiety. CBT creates new neuro-pathways by changing the way you think and behave. It's basically exercise for the brain. The more you flex those brain muscles, the stronger you become."
