"Are you seeking life-transformation, not just feel-good therapy? Are you aware of experiencing a low mood, anxiety, relationship/family conflicts, hopelessness, guilt, shame, self-loathing, low-self esteem/worth, over-whelm, fatigue, dread, physical/emotional/spiritual discomfort, isolation, life-limiting beliefs and patterns, fear of uncertainty, and/or thoughts of dying. If you are wanting to depth-fully explore how these experiences have come to be present in your life, impacting your life, and how to begin to heal them toward building the life you want, then you have come to the right place at the right time. Change is possible."

"I believe most people seek therapy as a road to change: lessening sadness, loneliness, anxiety, guilt, shame; changing relationships; making life transitions. I have devoted many years of training and practice to better help my patients understand their unconscious obstacles to desired change. For some patients change means learning to confront pain from chronic conditions like anxiety, depression, bi-polar or attention deficit disorders, For others, change entails finding their authentic voice in relationships or facing difficult realities. I enjoy developing a close, working relationship with my patients to create new capacities within themselves, hopefully perceiving new choices in their lives."

"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."

"People seek therapy for different reasons. Some are hoping for relief from a specific problem such as depression, anxiety or relationship difficulties. Others may have a general sense of not feeling as alive as they imagine they could. They would like help understanding this feeling and are seeking a richer, deeper, more fulfilling life. In psychotherapy we engage in a process of self discovery in which people learn about themselves and about the ways they have been blocked from feeling fully in touch with themselves and others in their lives."
