"Whenever people come to see me, I am always impressed by their courage. No matter what the problems are, most everyone enters therapy from a confused and vulnerable space. To do so takes courage. In knowing this, I work to honor their vulnerability and courage. I know that by providing a grounded, attentive, and focused presence to those I work with, trust will occur between us, and we can all be more free to address whatever the pain may be. Without this foundation of trust, I will not be able to effectively help at all."

"Change happens all the time, big and small. Sometimes it's unexpected , and sometimes you make it happen. It can be challenging, exciting, and worth living for; at the same time, it can be scary and upsetting. Losing everyday predictability can lead to uncomfortable feelings. And yet, we're always growing and moving from one set of challenges to another; from child to adult to parent; from family life to an empty nest or being alone; from one job to another, or from active career to retirement; from being single to being committed to another, or from commitment to independence."

"As a therapist I focus on the particular circumstances presented, help construct personalized goals by carefully and non-judgmentally attending to what is being presented. My effort is to respond in a direct, supportive, and interactive manner always from an empathetic perspective. My training took me deep into the human condition, and I've worked with most of the difficult problems prevalent in our contemporary experience. While working with couples the relationship is the goal for a couple. But when working with an individual I focus on the persons sense of self."
