"Therapy can be a source of tremendous relief and gratification. Unhappiness and anxiety that feel unbearable can lessen and disappear when you have someone who can help you understand the reasons for your suffering. A good therapist can also help you more easily get your mind off upsetting thoughts that preoccupy you. Or if you find yourself acting in self-defeating ways, studying it with a therapist can be of enormous help. Ideally, you will leave an initial consultation with a new way of thinking about the problem that brought you in."

"We are born with the capacity to feel whole, grounded and connected in life. But sometimes our impulse for living an authentic and joyful life is interrupted. What gets in the way of our vitality is different for everyone but can include family stress, trauma, grief and/or overwhelm associated with living in a demanding and fast paced society. The result of this disconnect is often depression, anxiety, critical self-judgment, shame, and negative or limiting beliefs.   In our work together we can uncover your more authentic self and substitute the limiting voices with the truth of what makes your heart sing.

"Being a therapist is one of the greatest joys in my life. It allows me the opportunity to encourage and witness the human growth process in a profound and personal way. Research shows that modern day distress is caused by isolation and disconnection, which many of us feel even in relationships. We are social creatures who thrive when we feel connected, especially to those who matter the most to us. The work and goal of therapy is to explore and strengthen our connections, first and foremost to ourselves, then to our partners, our families, or people in general."
