"It takes courage to start working with a new therapist. The very fact that you’re considering it probably means you’re getting ready to make some significant changes in your life. My approach to therapy focuses on understanding and accepting you as you are right now, and creating a safe space where you can figure out where you want to go from here. We’ll also work together as you get ready to make the sometimes tough (and rewarding) changes that will give you a better life. Often that includes communicating more effectively with others who are important to you—including your partner, children, friends, and colleagues at work."

"Many people, like those I usually work with, feel that, because of experiences in their past, they are not able to live as fully and happily as they wish. They want to be free of the effects of those experiences. Each person sets their own pace, but newer, effective approaches enable most people to reach their therapeutic goals more quickly than they could with older methods. These newer methods require out of session practice and record-keeping, so that we might better understand the events that cause difficulties and develop new ways to respond. The therapist is your guide, mentor, coach, and knowledgeable ally."

"I believe that our experiences in life are reflected in our behaviors, shape our thoughts, are held in our bodies, and trigger our emotions often outside of our consciousness. Increasing awareness at all levels allows us to have access to more choices in our lives. I see the goal of psychotherapy is to help people find a place in them where it feels safe, loving, and truthful, accessing their authentic selves.
