"Damaged relationships with the world and our families can affect us deeply throughout our lives leaving us feeling isolated, uncomfortable in our bodies and generally unsafe. Our energy begins to decline along with our enthusiasm for life. Its confusing. We quietly stonewall everything and everyone while wishing for the right partner, right career and right friends. Feelings of insecurity, loneliness or shame can spiral into deep bouts of depression, acting out, despair and suicide. Prioritizing the needs of everyone else can lead to unhealthy behaviors and choices supplanting authenticity and joy, while swapping virtual reality for real relationships and happiness."

"I believe that the primary agent of change in therapy is the relationship between client and therapist, and this cannot be known from text on a web page. It can only be known when we get in the room together and experience what unfolds between us - in one session and through time. Because therapy is more art than science, as much mystery and magic as it is theory and formula. Let's meet and see how it feels."

"My job is to interrupt you when you're stuck and get out of the way when you're in touch with your truth- and to remind you be kind to yourself. I work with people who are committed to growth. We are meant to grow throughout our entire lives. When that process is blocked or interrupted, we suffer. And yet, the way in which we suffer can be an opportunity to flourish in ways we hadn't imagined. I am particularly interested in helping people disarm the inner critic that can punish and paralyze us."

"Psychotherapy provides a unique space for you to explore your experience in life in a profoundly important way. In a culture that does not make space for "negative emotions", and idealizes independence, there is little room to get to know the parts of ourselves that we imagine others will not approve of. When we aren't in touch with all aspects of our humanity, effectively shutting out parts of our experience, we can find ourselves feeling confused, depressed and/or anxious, having trouble in relationships with others, not enjoying our work, having difficulty processing grief and loss, or struggling with issues related to our identity."

Others may have a general sense of not feeling as alive as they imagine they could. They would like help understanding this feeling and are seeking a richer, deeper, more fulfilling life. In psychotherapy we engage in a process of self discovery in which people learn about themselves and about the ways they have been blocked from feeling fully in touch with themselves and others in their lives."
