People come to me because they feel stuck: Some are stuck because they've just been thrown a curve ball by life; others find themselves in relationships that no longer nourish them; still others are frightened to take the next step in their personal or vocational development.

"Psychotherapy is to the mind what the immune system is to the body. It protects and strengthens. Our mental health is a measure of how strong the relationships in our lives are. Our sense of wellbeing is linked to our ability to create and sustain healthy connections with other people. When our needs for safety, trust or atunement haven't been met; where there was or is neglect, abuse, or other traumas, our nervous system's capacity to regulate feelings gets compromised.

"Someone once said, "The decision to ask for help is not easy and requires courage." Sometimes it is both challenging and absolutely terrifying to invite a perfect stranger into one's space that doesn't appear to be as "put together" as we would like, especially when what has one "falling apart" is substance use. I am of the belief that with a focused mind, determined spirit, and faith, there is no trip DOWN you can't fall UP from."
