"If you could change one thing about your life, what would make you happier? Maybe it would be making your relationships with others more satisfying or reducing your anxiety or depression. In individual therapy I help create a safe space to step back and observe your own emotions, beliefs, and patterns of relating to others. My approach is supportive, understanding, non-judgmental but also practical, honest and helpful in finding new solutions and ways to work through difficulties and problems."

"Maybe you look like you have it all together on the outside but inside there is constant self-criticism, relentless internal judgement, feeling like everyone else has it figured out, an overarching loneliness. You're on shaky ground and not sure which way to turn. Maybe you often feel like you are on the outside looking in, wanting to join in but your anxiety, resentments and feelings of worthlessness keeps you on the sidelines. You want to feel more sure of yourself, more forgiving of yourself and others, more present in daily life. You want to hold on to what makes you special but just be part of the human race as well. "

"While all people experience challenges throughout life, we each suffer in different ways and, as a result, develop a unique style of dealing with stress. During difficult times, ways of coping that once worked often lose their effectiveness. Even after identifying a problem or unhealthy pattern, it may be difficult to resolve the issue without the necessary support. Therapy often involves an increased curiosity toward one's emotional experience, and over time, awareness of how feelings relate to behavior. This allows for a deeper understanding of who we are and can help us approach problems and conflicts in healthier ways."
