"Often, the beliefs we carry about ourselves don't originate with us, or it can be hard to locate the source of our emotions. Maybe certain thoughts and memories seem like they are more than you can handle; or perhaps you are well aware of patterns you would like to change but don't know where to start. When we are in the thick of things, we are too close to see clearly. What therapy offers is another set of eyes, an aerial view that enables you to observe our own life more objectively. Part of my job is to help you hold what feels like "too much", remind you of your own strength, and to figure out a path forward together."

"Life can take many unexpected turns. Sometimes those unexpected life experiences can make us feel so overwhelmed that we lose touch with the things that make life meaningful. We stop engaging in the things that brought us joy; relating to others in the ways we would like; or find ourselves preoccupied with certain thoughts, emotions, or behaviors. Therapy is about building a life that is meaningful despite things that are out of our control. You may never be able to change things that have happened in the past, but you can learn to overcome those experiences. You do not have to handle this on your own."

"Life transitions may sometimes feel like a crisis and when the tools that once worked no longer works, we may begin to feel a sense of hopelessness and helplessness. Some may find themselves experiencing the dark night of the soul. F. Scott Fitzgerald beautifully wrote "In a real dark night of the soul it is always three o'clock in the morning, day after day." This is the moment in our lives when we must decide whether we want to continue to walk the path that no longer feels right or we must find the courage to carve a new path that is unfamiliar and unpaved.
