"Therapy is about uncovering desire. It is an adventure in moving past, dissolving or reducing painful problems and embracing life, love and relationships. It is more than words; it is experiencing oneself in ways that are meaningful, whatever that looks like for each person. I work with individuals and couples (gay, straight, poly, trans), who want more from their lives. I believe there is always hope and possibilities and I passionately work with people to discover opportunities for more of what they want in life."

"When we perceive that our lives are threatened, we go into survival mode. Survival mode is essential in the face of imminent danger. But when we feel overwhelmed and defenseless to a traumatic event (witnessing death) or events (a child or partner being repeatedly abused) we can become stuck in survival mode, even when imminent danger is not or is no longer reality. If left untreated, chronic survival mode gradually leads to trauma symptoms, which have lasting effects on an individual's biology, conceptions of the world, and psychological functioning."

"Today's society can be very overstimulating and can make it hard to focus on our inner experience of emotions. Sometimes we need an opportunity to slow down and process whether our feelings, thoughts and behaviors are helping or getting in the way of where we want to be as - as a person and in relationship with others. Children are equally as overstimulated and can thus struggle turning inward, processing trauma, and regulating emotions. I assist children/teens in increasing their ability to identify and express their emotions connected to life changes, traumas, and stressors in age appropriate ways."
