"One thing I have learned, of which I am absolutely certain, in both my personal and professional life experiences: we can't look outside of ourselves to guarantee deep-rooted peace and lasting joy. Short term fixes that originate externally might bring temporary relief, but will not bring unwavering peace. Repressed pain will eventually resurface, or come out sideways onto our loved ones. Lasting relief comes when we become honest with ourselves about ourselves, willing to experience the difficult emotions that we try to avoid through external distractions and open to the process of becoming comfortable with feeling uncomfortable.

"I believe that every day up until now has helped you to be the person you are today, and find it helpful to explore your family of origin dynamics to help in giving you some insights about your current functioning and relationships with others. While exploring the past, however, I find that my patients are coming in for symptom reduction, and not just insight. Which is why I am also very solution-focused. Through the combination of the two, my clients typically see a decrease in current symptoms, yet gain insight into preventing them in the future."

If someone has decided that he/she definitely wants out, we work on the patterns and beliefs that led to this stage and what needs to be done so the pattern won't be repeated in a new relationship. When working with individuals, I have many tools for relieving anxiety, depression, and trauma. and also for finding parts of self that give pleasure and pride lost in everyday responsibilities."

"Psychotherapy is a unique relationship in which you are invited to explore who you are. I believe therapy should be a space of freedom, where we can explore the ideas, fantasies, dreams, and thoughts we normally keep hidden – even from ourselves. Through this experience of speaking their true desire and singular story, many people reach new perspectives on old struggles and are able to create lasting change. I listen attentively and with nonjudgmental curiosity to your inner conflicts, thoughts, relationship patters, family history, ways of speaking, and more, as clues to where you’ve been and where you may need to go.
