"What does it mean to you to live well? There is no question more important, and for many, more difficult to answer on their own. We live in a world where expectations and responsibilities are many and great. We feel these pressures from our external world and also experience them from within. They effect how we feel about and treat ourselves and others. These pressures influence creative flow, and our ability to find and create passion as well as peace of mind. As a therapist, helping patients restore this necessary balance is one of my primary goals."

"I enjoy working with clients who want more than traditional "talk" therapy. I understand you might feel like just talking about your life cannot change your experience of it. You may be asking how can therapy make a difference? My approach is informed by the practice of mindfulness - the non-judgmental observation of the present moment. Research has shown mindfulness to be a highly effective treatment for depression, anxiety, and addiction. How is working in mindfulness different? In mindfulness we learn how to shift our emotional state from one of suffering to more empowered states of aliveness."

They are dissatisfied, but unclear about what they want; they feel that "something is missing," but they're not sure what it is. Others begin psychotherapy because they find themselves repeatedly cycling through unhealthy relationship patterns and they want to change. Additionally, we all have traumas and woundings within us, to varying degrees.
