"What if we begin with the assumption that you were born to be happy, loved, prosperous and at peace? Sounds good... but then why do I hurt? Why do I struggle? Why are the inevitable changes so hard to accept? Therapy can often serve to identify the barriers to happiness and emotional well-being. Simply identifying beliefs and practices at the center of any emotional turmoil can empower you to begin living a life that you deserve. I work with individuals and couples to get to the core of their issues so that they can start leading happier lives today!"

"Life today is often busy, with competing demands and expectations that can be very stressful. There are life changes we cannot always prepare for - health challenges, family conflict, economic shifts, personal loss, and more. As stresses mount, we can become stuck and find our ways of coping are not enough. We may turn to family or friends, and find that is not the help that we need. There may be no one we can turn to, as the burdens become too difficult to bear alone. If that is your situation, you may be wondering if talking with a therapist might help you navigate your way."

"There are times in our lives when we all struggle with fear and pain of one kind or another. Contacting a therapist can be fear-provoking in and of itself. Whether we are struggling with acute trauma or simply feeling challenged by facets of everyday life, we all occasionally long for empathy and guidance. Loss, depression/anxiety, addiction, even normal life transitional issues can leave us feeling powerless, frightened and lonely. Often we hesitate to share these feelings with friends or loved ones for fear of being a burden or worse, being judged."
