"I believe that humans yearn to live in right relationship with ourselves, the earth, and all beings. We yearn to live a life in which we can fully accept ourselves, connect meaningfully with others, and experience true belonging within our communities and the larger world. My intention as a practitioner is to honor and nurture this internal yearning, in order to help you build an external world that mirrors these values and visions. In order to build a more beautiful world and life, we must first heal from the past traumas and obstacles that have disrupted our sense of safety and interconnection in the world around us."

"My experience comes from 23 years of helping children, adults, couples and families in both Community Mental Health and Private Practice. My approach is eclectic and tailored to each individual's needs to facilitate healing and growth. Through my years of experience I have witnessed over and over again people coming into therapy with great pain, discomfort and despair but with time, (sometimes within a very short time) their symptoms diminish and a whole new person emerges. Crisis times can be extremely painful and distressful but they can also be opportunities for growth and healing through therapy."

"Hope, growth, strength, and increased happiness are possible. Taking the first step toward healing and continuing to persevere through adversity requires courage, and you don't have to do it alone. I believe human beings are innately driven toward happiness and health, but difficult experiences, unmet needs, and cognitive distortions can get in the way of this. I want to hear your story and help you overcome obstacles, experience greater happiness, regain a sense of control of your life, and free yourself from self-defeating thoughts and behaviors. "

"I care deeply about supporting people when they feel lonely, stuck and hopeless, and the usual things just aren't working. My clients tend to be high functioning adults who have reached a critical point where something has to give. Often this becomes evident while undergoing a major life transition such as a break up, divorce, the death of a loved one, or a career change. These low points can be scary and painful, but they can also be incredible opportunities for growth and healing. But growing is hard work and sometimes we can't do it on our own."

"Psychotherapy is one instrument of change for feeling better. For example, earlier psychic injuries may alert us when faced with challenges making us anxious, depressed, endure sleep problems or feel out of balance some way. Long term recovery from addiction, grieving and loss, chronic illness or pain may call for deeper work. Many stress points show up in relationships, at work or in how we feel. Life transitions (starting or ending a career, big changes in relationships/family, starting a young family or retirement ) are important passages in our lives and therapy can be a great guide."
