"I enjoy working with people of all ages with any struggles they may be dealing with. I start treatment where people are emotionally with the issue and choose a pace comfortable for them. I am not a "certified" expert with any particular issue nor do I use a single therapeutic approach for each person and each problem. I do, however, have a wealth of experience and knowledge from my years of experience and ongoing education and trainings. If there is an issue I don't feel I can address with enough depth I would offer appropriate referrals to someone who could help more."

"Two guiding principles for therapy are compassion and accountability. Compassion of others helps us hang in there when life is hard. Accountability compels us to use what we learn, as it turns us away from self-pity and blame. Sometimes we learn life's lessons the hard way-it just seems to be part of being human. If you're feeling stuck in a confusing or painful situation, consider therapy. It isn't about telling you what to do. It's about learning how to sort things out for yourself."

"Often times we find ourselves hurting, stuck, and confused. We all have places in our lives where we can tell ourselves one thing, but it feels impossible to actually believe what we are telling ourselves. Our fears and our worries take over our rational thoughts. We are kept from being who we really want to be. Sometimes, these fears are small, and the cost of giving into them doesn't amount to much. Other times, they are life changing and relationship shattering. We can't seem to get a grip on who we really are and our lives fall apart."

"Being a parent is a joy like none other. This may however become challenging if your child (especially a teenager) battles emotional, behavioral, eating disorders, lack of confidence or addiction problems. Teenagers with these issues often argue, have hard time expressing emotions, have disruptive behavior, sudden change in eating habits and conscious of their body image. They might resort to use of alcohol or other drugs to escape struggles. This does not mean you are a bad parent; it is just a difficult time for your family. You just need someone to walk you through during this difficult time."
