"THERAPY IS AN INVESTMENT IN YOUR FUTURE SELF... The person that is most dependent on you is your future self. We don't often think of ourselves in this way, but the decisions we make as we move through our lives affect everything that comes after. This is why it is crucial that we treat ourselves with the same kindness and generosity we would show to anyone we dearly love. Often, our decisions are informed by old patterns of which we are not aware, and which were formed when we were quite young and lacked capacity for perspective or reflection."

"We humans are relational. We all need support, and this is a meaningful step -- choosing to enter therapy and accept that support. As an LMFT, my emphasis is on relationship. That could be relationships to anyone and ultimately it is relationship to oneself. I work with empathy, partnering with you in your growth, with the aim of expanding your love of self and life. I ask that you join me in being curious about you and to treat our work as a lab for learning which you can take outside of our sessions and apply to your life. We are all naturally striving toward greater health and aliveness -- it is the thrust of life. "
