I have worked with a variety of clients, diagnoses, and life circumstances. I primarily see adults that cope with anxiety and depression, difficult transitions as well as problems within their interpersonal/romantic relationships. I find the work to be very rewarding and make every effort to join with each client as we work to understand how their past and present experiences contribute to their current situations. I believe that we live out cycles/patterns that begin early in our life and manifest over the course of our adulthood. It is important to explore and understand them to make changes.

The ability to recognize that we all play a part in our own lives and thus contribute to our own difficulties to one degree or another is an important component of the therapeutic work and recovery.
