"¶..You'll tap your strengths and enjoy them. We'll marvel at how the brain creates one adaptive "I" after another (side by side now, taking turns in one healthy person). We'll respect how they once protected you, and relax the outdated ones that tie you up. ¶..We can use the ways you're ready for change, so it feels natural. I see adults & elders delighted by fresh thinking, with new relief from false alarm."

"Simply put, I help you feel better in your life. What does this mean? You have the degree, the job, maybe even the house, and it all looks good on paper. But inside, you're still struggling. Maybe with anxiety or depression, in your marriage or with your mother, or you struggle with imposter syndrome at work or feeling generally unfulfilled and maybe even miserable with your seemingly great life. You find yourself waking up at 3am with racing thoughts, numbing out after work, or constantly bickering with your partner and you're totally sick of it. Something HAS to change. That's where I come in. "

You may have habits you don't like or conflicts you don't understand. The goal is not to "fix" you, but to provide you with insights that allow you to be more effective and satisfied. Therapy is not a one-size-fits-all toolbox.

"Why do therapy? Why embark on a relationship with someone you don't know, to talk about difficulties or challenges in your life? Sometimes, when we tell family or friends how we are feeling, they react personally or try to explain away our experiences rather than make room for them. I believe that a relationship with a therapist is one in which significant change can take place. The neutral environment of therapy provides space to explore our experiences without worrying about angering, hurting, or upsetting someone else."
