"It takes a village...Navigating through the transitions and challenges in our lives is meant to be a collaboration with family, friends, elders, wise women and men. However, in the times of instant change and mobility, some may find themselves lost and alone, far from those they confide in and look up to. Sometimes they isolate for fear of vulnerability and the pressure to appear "to have it together". When this self-judgement and drive to be “perfect” eventally takes its toll, one can be left feeling bereft of deep connection to self and others. Finding a therapist you can trust and confide in, can help you find your way."

"I am trained in Family Therapy and although not always the case, therapy often moves faster when you are willing to include other family members as a part of therapy at some point. It helps me understand you in the broader context of the people that are important to you or have influence in your life. I have been married for 34 years and have three adult children so my personal experience often informs me, along with my training and the expertise I have gathered being a part of The Family Therapy Institute."

"There are times in one’s life where one may feel overwhelmed or lost with no sense of purpose or direction, or one may think that life is less than fulfilling. And in those times, one may think and feel that they don’t know who they are any more or how to connect with themselves or with others. As one stress-filled moment after another or one nagging thought after another starts to build, external and internal pressure increases and life can feel out of control and overwhelming. And there you are wondering exactly how it is possible to move forward in life to regain the sense of who you are or why you are struggling."
