"The decision to begin therapy is not simple and often comes at a particularly challenging time in your life. I know how difficult it can be to reach out during these times and my goal is to respond with curiosity, open-mindedness, and empathy. I believe that lasting change can come from exploring and ultimately freeing ourselves from the underlying causes of current symptoms. I want to work together with you to find ways to gain insight and relief. I work in an open and transparent manner, to help answer any questions or concerns you have along the way."

"Are you in the midst of a paradigm shift? Are your familiar beliefs and meanings beginning to shatter? Have you experienced an authoritarian and controlling community that no longer fits? Does it feel impossible to leave but impossible to stay. Depression, confusion, anger, meaningless sets in. No one wants to listen to your doubts and struggles. They try to talk you out of them or judge you. You are afraid that you are drifting away from your friends and family. You hardly know who you are anymore but you know you want to be free to live your own life,"

"The decision to start psychotherapy is significant as it often means that you are suffering in some way or you've realized that what you've been doing is no longer working, and you are seeking change in your life. My approach is collaborative, warm, and challenging. I work psychodynamically, and also focus on the integration of the mind and body. I believe change occurs through the expression of emotions, addressing how the past impacts your current experiences, and exploring interpersonal relationships, including the relationship between the patient and therapist."

"I believe that our experiences in life are reflected in our behaviors, shape our thoughts, are held in our bodies, and trigger our emotions often outside of our consciousness. Increasing awareness at all levels allows us to have access to more choices in our lives. I see the goal of psychotherapy is to help people find a place in them where it feels safe, loving, and truthful, accessing their authentic selves. To facilitate this process, I explore with clients their thoughts and belief systems, behaviors, feelings, and physical sensations, helping to connect and integrate the mind, body and spirit."
