"Are you looking for a psychologist who will understand you and your situation? The single-best predictor of therapuetic success is the strength of the therapist-client relationship. I use the term "client" rather than "patient" because it reflects my belief in you, who is deserving of unconditional positive regard, empathy and non-judgement. Sometimes life presents us with situations beyond our ability to cope effectively on our own, it is wise to reach out for help. Please call or email me for a free consultation to decide if you feel I am the right guide for you on your path toward the life you are. "

"Navigating life's challenges can sometimes become overwhelming. Other times we find ourselves feeling "stuck" and unsure how to move through our difficulties. The process of seeking therapy and exploring experiences with another person is a brave step toward the life you want for yourself. The human experience is complex. Therapy can help us understand ourselves more completely. Gaining insight into our feelings, motivations, pattens of negative thoughts and behaviors, anxiety and things that hold us back helps us with our relationships, with work, and with our creation of a satisfying and authentic life experience.

"Beginning therapy can be in response to anything from experiencing crisis, to not feeling a sense of purpose in one's life. I work with clients to create a therapeutic relationship that facilitates an opportunity to explore thoughts and feelings, to experience personal growth and the freedom and joy that come with living an authentic life. I offer clients the healing experience of being truly seen, heard and accepted. Vulnerability and self-compassion are experienced when I work with clients so that clients have a true sense of feeling connected to themselves and to others, leaving them feeling less alone in the world."
