I think of therapy as a way of freeing ourselves from the obstacles which prevent us from moving forward in our lives. Frequently these obstacles present themselves to us in the challenges of the outer world--in problems at work, in difficult relationships, in adapting to life changes, or in the sudden impact of a traumatic event. And sometimes what stands in the way of our freedom and happiness lies within us, as negative thought patterns, conflicting or confusing emotions, and unexpressed feelings--all of which can result in depression, anxiety, chronic illness, low self esteem--burdens we often carry alone.

Todavía están tensos y con rabia por otra pelea a gritos que acaban de tener. Ni siquiera están seguros de qué se trataba esta vez. Últimamente, cualquier cosa pequeña puede desencadenar una batalla total entre ustedes. Ayer discutieron por sus suegros, el día anterior fue por dinero. Ha llegado al punto en que han comenzado a evitarse porque no pueden estar en la misma habitación sin pelear. ¿Sería mejor si simplemente separamos? No están listos para renunciar al sueño de un futuro compartido , pero las cosas solo empeoran. Quiere salvar esta relación, pero no está seguros de cómo hacerlo. Están ya desesperados sin saber que hacer!

I view therapy as an opportunity for every person to have a confidential, supportive, and guided experience towards personal growth and facing life’s unending challenges. My style of therapy is very much like my personality: down to earth, humble, funny, compassionate, slightly sarcastic, direct, and blunt in a loving way. I have a sense of humor about myself, and I encourage my clients to adopt the same attitude. Each client who walks into my office comes with a unique history of experiences. To personalize treatment I use a combination of evidence-based therapeutic techniques to best support, explore, interpret, and solve.

We all have unique stories. Our pasts form us into who we are today, and oftentimes what once worked for us, no longer does. Therapy can help us gain the insight to understand our stories, but more importantly, help us to choose new ways of living and engaging with ourselves, others, and the world. In the context of a supportive relationship, we will work together to move towards a life that is more meaningful, satisfying, and free.
