"I want to acknowledge how difficult it can be to seek help, especially when you're feeling overwhelmed by life events or feelings of anxiety, depression or grief. It takes courage to reach out and get the support you need to feel better and to move forward in your life. Through the collaborative process of therapy we will explore the difficulties you are experiencing, looking at the impact of events and experiences to gain insight into the way these experiences may have influenced your current attitudes, beliefs and feelings about yourself and others."

"Asking for help can be difficult. We often think "I should be able to handle my problems myself". However, everyone needs support at some point in their lives. A major crisis, a life transition, loss, job stress, relationship problems, emotional needs, our past interfering with our present, or everyday stressors become too much to deal with alone. We forget our strengths and become isolated, depressed, angry, or make poor choices."

The parts you hide from everyone else. You get to take off the mask. All of you is welcome. There are so many things today that can leave us feeling disconnected, exhausted, overwhelmed, and stuck. Often, we carry with us our past fears, wounds, and painful experiences. And that keeps us in a place of stress, anxiety, and avoidance. It can sometimes feel like everyone else has it all figured out. Like you’re the only one who is unsure of who you are and what you want. "

"Everyone experiences stress in their lives. Sometimes this is temporary and manageable, sometimes overwhelming. When things seem too difficult to handle alone, counseling can help. When I work with people, I see them as partners in their care. Old habits of thinking and reacting to situations in life can seem difficult to overcome. Together we discover what seems to be the source of the problems, explore what has worked and not worked so far, and find new ways of dealing with what is causing emotional pain. I sometimes suggest ways to practice new responses or behaviors between meetings."
