"You feel frustrated with your anxiety and the more you try to understand it and make it go away, the larger your anxiety gets. You have regular visits from your inner critic that replays every detail of your conversation, all the ways you failed, and all the ways people will judge you for it. Your thoughts spiral out of control when someone makes a comment about you. From the outside, you’ve got it together. You’re tidy, well kept, and apologetic to a fault; it’s rare if someone doesn’t like you. But underneath, you’re depleted, exhausted, and anxious. Life feels out of balance and you’re worn out with worry and stress."

"Are you a lesbian couple in the process of deciding to become parents? Are you an individual seeking support while you and your partner are thinking about beginning a family? There are unique decisions that you may be currently facing such as, pregnancy or adoption, which partner will become pregnant, and how will both partners feel involved as parents. It is important for you to have a safe space to explore these questions. There are feelings that accompany the decisions that you are making, and partners may feel differently. This sometimes challenges the connection between you."

"I enjoy working with adults who are interested in becoming more conscious. We all have reactions to things but there are some reactions or triggers that cause emotional pain. These triggers are usually a leftover piece of unprocessed pain. Unless they are understood and healed, they'll keep coming up. I enjoy working with clients who are motivated and curious about this process. The result is more peace of mind and a more fulfilling relationship with oneself and others."

"Most people looking for a relationship therapist wish they could make changes, but don't know how. What they have tried has not worked. Everyone has irresolvable issues. Never do we have the exact same desire for money in the bank, sexual frequency, social activities, neatness, or parenting ideas (etc.) This is built-in conflict. This built-in conflict carries with it the seeds for growth and connection that would not happen in any other way. Living in distress is so awful and so curable.
