"My clients are most often dealing with communication concerns, issues of intimacy and complications related to life changes. When traumatic events impact their daily lives, they may seek assistance. Occasionally couples and families experiencing stress in their relationships may need an objective listener and guide to help them figure out how to reestablish balance. With the many demands of life and work, we work together to find pleasure in their families and for parents to reinstate parental authority within the family structure."

"Are you in a place in your life where big changes are happening both inside and outside yourself? You feel unsure of how to express and assert yourself in the world and relationships. You wish for more clarity and confidence. Maybe you feel alone in what you're going through. Therapy is a safe place to explore what's going on, to feel understood, supported, and find your voice. I believe healing happens when we can tend to all the parts of ourselves, light and dark. Wholeness arises when we can express and fully embrace who we really are."

"I care deeply about supporting people when they feel lonely, stuck and hopeless, and the usual things just aren't working. My clients tend to be high functioning adults who have reached a critical point where something has to give. Often this becomes evident while undergoing a major life transition such as a break up, divorce, the death of a loved one, or a career change. These low points can be scary and painful, but they can also be incredible opportunities for growth and healing. But growing is hard work and sometimes we can't do it on our own."

"Unprocessed traumatic memories can get “stuck” in the body’s nervous system, and can influence how we live our lives in the present. If you’ve noticed yourself having exaggerated responses to everyday life stressors, or feeling paralyzed to make change, it’s possible you’re responding from old, automatic survival mechanisms. While those instincts may have been helpful at one time, now they may be getting in the way, keeping you stuck in old patterns. Within the supportive and non-judgmental space of psychotherapy, healing from the emotional wounds of the past is possible."

You want to interact with another person, not talk to a "wall". You want to share vulnerable feelings and embarrassing stories without feeling judged. Most importantly, whether you're laughing or crying, you want to feel comfortable being yourself."
