"Therapy should be easy to understand and active from the word go. We don't just talk about the problem or figure out why the patterns are there; we hit the ground running with action and get you feeling better as soon as possible. I work with a lot of folks who have tried therapy before and been disappointed when insight and understanding don't lead to change, and folks who are trying therapy for the first time and want it to be practical and clear. I start with a free 20-minute phone consultation."

"One of the goals of therapy is to make you more aware of your feelings, thoughts, and actions, which influence the way you live your life. Having more understanding and insight about why you do what you do will give you more choices. Sometimes we feel like we repeat patterns or are stuck in a situation and don’t know how to do something different. I can help you work through difficult times you are encountering in the present and also help to heal past traumas. Therapy can help you act with intention and in support of your personal goals."

"As a deeply creative person, you feel like life only gives you two options, and neither one is particularly savory. Option 1: Find a way to stay safe, warm and fed while dealing with mounting existential despair and confusion because your inner artist is basically dying. Option 2: Take the path less traveled (i.e., the creative path), while learning how to live life in free fall and become best friends with fear. Who wants fear as their constant companion? That sounds horrible. You feel uniquely cursed. You feel like fortune's fool. I know. Who asks to be born, and who the hell asks to be born as a creative or an artist? "
