"My clients are drawn to therapy mostly around issues of anxiety or depression that stem from feeling that life is without purpose, or that they aren't living their calling. Life experiences from childhood on contribute to drawing us off our path, and a feeling of flatness or of intense anxiety often accompanies this. It's very common to have this experience during midlife (the wake-up call, so to speak), and I work to help you "re-member" yourself."

"Many individuals and couples approach me for therapy feeling they've hit a road block in their lives and are confused and frustrated in their attempts to grow beyond it. They are often uncertain - both about their capacity to change and about whether therapy can help. Couples may be hopeful or discouraged about transforming their repeated patterns of conflict or distance, but know that significant changes are needed if their relationship is to regain a sense of joy and strength. The art of therapy involves reaching beyond solving a particular problem and exploring the opportunites for growth embedded within it."
