"Struggling right now? I believe that real happiness is possible, but often the path is elusive. Life continually challenges us and forces us to grow, but sometimes growth and change can be painful. The good news is that you are not alone. There is help to get you to the other side. If it is a deep loss now or in the past, struggle in relationship, divorce, loss of children, a loss of connection, or a loss of meaning, I want you to know that there is hope. I will meet you where you are in your struggle, and we will find a path forward. Together we will solve the thing that confronts and confounds you, and grow peace in its place."

"For most people, strong relationships are an important indicator of health and well-being. When we feel stuck in old patterns that no longer serve us, our connection to others suffers too, which can turn up as depression, anxiety, or simply feeling alone and disconnected. By reconnecting with our essential gifts and strengths through the therapy process, we in turn can offer more to family, friends, and community. I enjoy working collaboratively with clients and view them as the experts on their own experiences, and I understand therapy as a journey to the revelation of the authentic self at the heart of every person."
