"Whatever difficulty is bringing you into therapy, ultimately it's an opportunity to learn about who you are, and how your personal and intergenerational history is affecting your experience of yourself and how you perceive the world. I work best with people who are hungry for this understanding, so they can untangle themselves from whatever is holding them back from living their best life. The truth can bring immense relief, but it is also often painful. I take seriously the need to create a relationship that is deeply compassionate and supportive, one that feels safe enough that you can confront whatever truth needs to be faced. "

"Do you feel stuck no matter how hard you try to move ahead? You're not alone. It can be tough making change. Over the past decade, I've come to learn again and again that there's a legitimate reason why we don't move forward to fulfillment. Instead we cycle in discomfort, anxiety, sadness, fear, mistrust, etc. Once you really understand what is causing the discomfort (or that feeling of being stuck), lasting change can occur. This process is unique for each person. I'd love to help you."

"Life can take many unexpected turns. Sometimes those unexpected life experiences can make us feel so overwhelmed that we lose touch with the things that make life meaningful. We stop engaging in the things that brought us joy; relating to others in the ways we would like; or find ourselves preoccupied with certain thoughts, emotions, or behaviors. Therapy is about building a life that is meaningful despite things that are out of our control. You may never be able to change things that have happened in the past, but you can learn to overcome those experiences. You do not have to handle this on your own."
