"Fact is, the past often gets in the way of living life to its fullest. Do you feel emotionally drained, empty inside with thoughts of self-loathing? Maybe you are consumed with shame over memories, behaviors or thoughts you cannot seem to control. Loss of sleep and an overall sense of irritability can overwhelm any sense of normalcy. This is not the real you-but how to get out from under it? Breakthroughs happen... when digging deep one needs an experienced hand to shine a light to help."

"We all get stuck, but we don't have to stay that way. Therapy is a place for new beginnings. Beginning to learn about ourselves. Beginning to increase self-love and appreciation. Beginning to heal. I believe all individuals are unique, thus therapy is not a one size fits all. I aim to meet each client where they are, with understanding and a strong therapeutic relationship as the foundation for a transformative process. Most of us are doing the best we can with what we've received from our loved ones and early experiences, my goal is to have you leave with more, and for your best to only get better."

"Life is not about what has or will happen to you, it’s about how you respond. It’s about making meaning from our experiences and creatively transforming problems into possibilities. Therapy won’t rid you of problems but it will offer you a space to better understand the challenges you face and will help you grow, empower yourself… and build resilience for future challenges"

"If you're looking for a therapist it's probably because you need help with feelings or problems that are distressing you; conflicts in relationships or within yourself. There's a myth that it's better to manage on your own, but in truth, nobody develops new capacities on their own. We all need someone to listen, to understand and to join with us in a way which encourages and supports our growing capacities to deal with emotional distress and relational conflicts."

"I enjoy working with married people and single people, gay people and straight people, men and women, therapy beginners and treatment seasoned soldiers. It is hard to narrow down to a "type" as I have experience with a broad array of people and presenting issues. That said, I do seem to connect especially well with creative people: actors, writers, producers, etc. The most important aspect of your relationship with your therapist is chemistry and that is tricky to predict from the reading of a profile. Better to call me or meet in person so we can see about the match."

"Life can be complicated, full of change and challenges. Although we have all come up with ways get through these times or cope, sometimes challenges persist, resurface or feel overwhelming. Significant change requires deep personal examination, something difficult to do on our own. Psychotherapy is an effective way to help us understand our behavior and its connection to our inner emotional experience. It helps to resolve common problems that often impact our daily functioning including depression, anxiety, stress, relationship issues, bereavement, and difficult life phases. Psychotherapy is a supportive process promoting exploration, growth and change."
