"Life can be challenging, and there are many reasons you may be seeking help, either for yourself or with a partner or family members. It may be that you or a loved one is experiencing depression or anxiety. Stress may be piling up as you try to balance the challenges of life, relationship, career, or family. Perhaps you are just not finding happiness. You may be caregiving for a parent, struggling with grief, or asking "Is this all there is?" As a therapist, I tap into your strengths and creativity so that you can create positive change in your life."

"Einstein said, 'We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used to create them.' I've found applying Buddhist ideas and Jungian techniques to one's problems can speed up a motivated person's desire to fulfill more of their potential, even while living in these manic times. Findings in neuroscience overwhelmingly confirm the efficacy of the long traditions of Buddhist thought on how to train oneself to abandon old, familiar reactions to life's difficulties that have become habitual. Neuroscience makes methods to become more aware much more accessible to our western ways of thinking."
