"At Connections First we have faith in the power of connection: with your inner life and to the outer world through meaningful relationships. We believe that mental health is an effect of feeling more deeply connected to ourselves and to others through the safety of transparent, emotionally honest relationships. How we communicate with ourselves and those we care about determines whether we possess integrity and feel empowered to express ourselves as human beings. Much of our symptoms are the effects of emotional, psychological, and physical isolation and self-alienation which can even happen when we are surrounded by other people."

"A person's potential can be obscured by a history of stress, strain and compromises. Therapy can re-orient a person to their true needs, allowing them to become more effective in many aspects of their lives: at work, home, and in relationships. I offer a collaborative, safe, and respectful environment where conversations unfold at their own pace. It is important that a person trusts the therapist who they work with and is able to discuss their problems openly. The right "fit" between therapist and patient can be determined best after an initial consultation."

"Most of my clients come to me in the midst of some sort of transition--a difficult relationship, a new job, divorce, retirement, a move, etc.--that they are unable to navigate alone. I also see many persons confronting cancer, chronic pain or a crisis of faith. When we first meet, we will explore what brings you into therapy at this time. We will create a plan together to achieve the outcome you would like best. Many times, I find that transitions involve a certain amount of loss and grief that has not yet been acknowledged. Our goal would be to fit this transition, or life condition, large or small, into your overall life journey."

"Trauma, stress, and anxiety harm us. In response we disconnect from our partners, families, and communities. Our future and our identity are stolen from us. A joyful life filled with hope and meaning can feel out of reach. This is especially true for people in the helping professions - physicians, nurses, counselors, mental health workers, teachers and others - where rapidly increasing expectations and demands from the job often outpace our resilience and ability to effectively cope and change.

"Trauma, grief, divorce, conflict in personal or family relationships, parenting issues, all can be overwhelming and affect us deeply - causing anxiety, depression, addiction, broken relationships, and a need to disconnect. Gaining self-awareness and understanding how our thoughts and feelings impact our actions and interaction with others is important. Together, we identify goals, develop tools, and learn how to change behaviors based on new thoughts and beliefs, develop more fulfilling relationships, feel less distress, and find solutions to specific problems. Life begins to have perspective again."

"Do you ever wonder, despite all your knowledge and efforts for growth that you still end up in a pattern of doing the same thing over and over again? Well, it's not your fault and there is a way to change it. When we are free to truly see and understand the connection to our brain, body, mind, and relationships, we can actually rewire our brains to build new neural pathways for new ways of thinking and being. Most of what we do, we have no idea why we do it; almost 85% is not on a conscious level."
