I pride myself on meeting my clients where they are, and working collaboratively with each of my clients and couples. We all at times go through periods when processing, whether towards change or healing, becomes necessary. I hope to make that process a bit more comfortable, so that you are not alone, and also to help you move through your journey with integrity and intention. Many of my clients report feeling it to be easier to approach difficult topics due to us having a friendly relationship as a foundation. I believe that foundation is in part created due to our efforts in seeing and validating their own internal strengths.

It is so hard to reach out for help because what happens if it doesn't work out? Don't worry, help is here. Whether it's relationship issues, depression, anxiety, life transitions, trauma or sex addiction. We can work on these things together, and tomorrow will be so much better.

All of us struggle at different times in our life. We often feel stuck in our current state or situation and wonder if this is how life has to be. Whether you are facing a conflict that seems irresolvable, are searching for more meaning in life, or want to heal past wounds to feel a deeper sense of peace, making the decision to seek help takes courage. My belief is that we all have the power to limit the chaos of our mind through developing a strong and loving connection to ourselves.

Stories have always fascinated me. They have the power to move us emotionally, to educate and instruct, to entertain us, and to cultivate true compassion and empathy through the act of sharing a story with another. They are also a powerful vehicle for how we perceive, interpret, define and live our lives, yet sometimes it can be easy to forget that we can be the authors of our story, not just a character proceeding along some previously determined narrative.

My clients are hard-working and desire a better quality of life. They are willing to be challenged, trying new techniques to move forward. I use information about normal developmental transitions to move people when they are stuck. The focus is on identity and spirituality as themes I weave into my work. This does not mean organized religion, rather concepts such as connections, acceptance, peace, and letting go. If you choose to combine religion and spiritualuity, for your own growth, that is your choice.

It is the desire of every human being to be loved and to belong. The only true thing that distinguishes us from one another is our experiences and our perspective of those experiences. Your past, the personal struggles and decisions you currently face and the conflicts between you and those you care about does not define you. What I offer is empathy, compassion, and support with a focus on creating a warm, safe and welcoming environment where you can be heard and understood without judgment.

My ideal patient would be someone who has realized that something in his or her life seems to not be working in the way that person has expected or wished for. That individual would be thoughtful and open to exploration and discovery of previously unknown factors that may be interfering with life. I also have a strong belief in each individual's ability to discover for oneself what fits best for him or herself. It is my job to help my patients come to recognize their ability to find what that may be.

NEW GROUP starting, info under "groups" tab. These are some surreal and unprecedented times that we are living in. It seems that every day some other tragedy or stressor seems to be added to the heaping mound of stressors we already are dealing with on a daily basis. There is so much of the "unknown" out there and I think we all need help from others, especially now. I believe the ideal healing environment is one where you feel safe, respected, supported and valued. I work very hard to create this kind of space, especially as we are first getting to know each other. I also believe firmly that you are the expert of your life.

My approach to therapy is grounded in the belief that each individual has the capacity to affect change in his/her life. I also believe in my responsibility to actively engage with my client and facilitate their movement through their issues and feelings. Different theoretical interventions may be more facilitative depending on one's particular needs, one's background, one's view of the world, and one's capacity for insight. As a therapist, I truly consider the individual as a whole and attempt to utilize the most effective tool to facilitate progress towards independent wellness given the particular needs and challenges of my client.
