"We are living in very stressful times that challenge us to find meaning. Often the very painful issues that bring people to therapy -- anxiety and/or depression, difficulty with relationships, life-cycle transitions, trauma, illness, aging, lack of purpose and belonging -- present a wonderful opportunity for exploration, growth, and development. I especially enjoy working with individuals in transition, whether in early adulthood, mid-life, or the "third chapter" of older age and have a special place in my heart for those who struggle with feelings of not fitting in, living non-traditional lives or in non-traditional relationships."

"Life can be full of challenges and crossroads. Sometimes our familiar ways of coping no longer land us where we want to be. I assist my clients in exploring new possibilities for navigating life. Your personal self-discovery process -- integrating mind, body and spirit in wholeness -- is what I value and support. Therapy can address gaps and overwhelm that happened in our earlier development as well as difficult crossroads, relationship issues and traumatic life events. Our resilience and capacity to live fully can expand. Under the right conditions, our biological and emotional systems do know how to return to balance. And with lasting change."
