"Depression or anxiety can happen to anyone, and is sometimes hard to understand. It may be the result of painful events, chronic medical problems, or a life out of balance. Therapy can be an opportunity to resolve these issues. Energy that had been spent managing problems like anxiety, addiction and depression, can be used to create a healthier life. While reaching out for help takes courage, not doing so may cause greater pain for you and those you love. Therapy is a courageous journey that offers positive, life-changing possibilities. There is much to learn, and much to gain."

"Living a life where struggling is a regular experience is difficult to change, because no one wants to feel worse. Therapy helps by talking through what's happened, what feels wrong and what ideas you have about it, all which may be conscious or unconscious. What's unconscious surfaces naturally through our dialogue together. Most people enter therapy afraid, because they don't know where to start or are overwhelmed because so much has happened. With over 25 years of experience, I can help you navigate this terrain to relieve pain, clarify thoughts and beliefs, and to improve feelings of well-being."

"Healthy and rewarding relationships take work. It is common for most people to experience problems at some point in their relationships. Sometimes these problems can be easily resolved on their own, and sometimes they cannot. If you have relationship difficulties that aren't going away, seeking the help of a professional is an important step in achieving a healthier life balance. Problems that aren't addressed can, and do, go underground and fester. The sooner you address them, the better."
