"Choosing to start therapy is a sign of strength, not weakness. I believe all people have a natural inclination toward growth and wholeness and sometimes things get in the way. Exploring these obstacles with compassion and courage can help you cultivate the most important relationship of your life -- your relationship with yourself. Whether your challenge is depression, anxiety, grief and loss, relationships, addictions or career challenges, all you need to get started is the desire to change."

"My job is to interrupt you when you're stuck and get out of the way when you're in touch with your truth- and to remind you be kind to yourself. I work with people who are committed to growth. We are meant to grow throughout our entire lives. When that process is blocked or interrupted, we suffer. And yet, the way in which we suffer can be an opportunity to flourish in ways we hadn't imagined. I am particularly interested in helping people disarm the inner critic that can punish and paralyze us."

"You have every right to expect psychotherapy to cure what ails you. It's my responsibility to help you see your problems clearly, so that solutions become emotionally apparent and therefore, accessible. I will help you to feel better about how you conduct yourself in every context and every relationship. Successful therapy will reduce your anger; anxiety will diminish along with your shame, self-blame and self-doubt. You will look at yourself in ways that you have avoided. Effective therapy makes change inevitable. If therapy does not succeed, it is never the fault of the client."

"I enjoy being a psychotherapist because it provides me the opportunity to help people resolve the issues that are causing them distress. I work with adults, children, and families, and understand that each person is a unique individual with his or her unique life circumstances, history, and social and cultural context. A goal of our work together will be to help you identify and understand the conflicts that may be causing you difficulty, and to help you overcome them. Or perhaps negative thinking patterns cause you to experience sadness, loneliness, hopelessness, fear, or other unwanted emotions."

"People turn to therapy when they are in too much emotional pain, stuck in intractable situations with intimate partners or at work, or acting in ways that are self-destructive or harmful to others. When other solutions have not worked, therapy offers a chance to address and change outmoded ways of being. The therapeutic relationship is key to this work. It offers the possibility of exploring new ways of relating to ourselves and others that can lead to a richer and more fulfilling life. The therapist must provide a place of safety and be a partner in this process."

"I have worked in the field of psychology for over twenty years. In my psychotherapy work, I provide a safe and respectful setting where you can discuss current challenges, and understand how particular feelings and patterns contribute to these challenges. Often these challenges develop out of prior dysfunctional relationships, and it is in the psychotherapy relationship that new and more satisfying goals and behaviors can be discussed and developed. In our initial appointments I actively listen and engage with patients to develop a psychological framework to understand their challenges, and then set concise goals to address in the therapy."

"Most of my clients started working with me in the midst of personal crisis and it was important to make practical improvements and for them to feel better and better about themselves. Some people were satisfied with short-term therapy and elected to stop there. Others decided to use their positive momentum to initiate longer-term changes in their present lives, often relating to issues of childhood and family of origin. Consequently I am fortunate to have a full practice of clients working to make real change. Openings for one or two new people per week."
