"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."

"Are you asking, How can I find love? or, What is missing in my relationships? Are you stuck in complaining and blaming, or avoiding and withholding? Are you noticing your relationship struggles make you feel lonelier rather than more open to each other? I provide an environment of safety where you may explore how you are stuck and how your persistent conflicts spoil your potential for intimacy. Tracking the repetitive patterns of communication, and the stories which confirm your most negative beliefs, I will strengthen your awareness to the influences that affect whether you keep repeating old patterns or open to real change."

"Connecting with others in an open, authentic way can feel pretty amazing. Being understood, valued, cared for, and known is something almost everyone craves. It's part of being human. But so often conflicts, worries, insecurities, and past hurts can get in the way of feeling good about ourselves and our relationships, and can leave us feeling lonely, frustrated and lost. Psychotherapy provides the security and compassion you need to better understand what you want, what holds you back, and how to create more satisfying, authentic, honest relationships."
