"Life is a journey with many challenges, and people often become stuck, whether in a way of feeling (sad, anxious, in pain) or a way of being (job, relationship, lifestyle). Such distress and confusion can make it hard to move forward. A therapist who genuinely understands and accepts you can help relieve that distress and mobilize your strengths to move forward in a meaningful direction. As a psychologist, I am skilled in helping you free yourself from being stuck to find the meaning, fulfillment and joy that also can be part of life's journey."

"When we are in pain, we lose a sense of wonder. Our mind feels like a prison instead of a space to discover. The future looks as bleak as the past and painful as the present. The pain is a signal inviting us to understand something about our inner life. "

"I use a collaborative model, where sessions feel like two people having a conversation in my living room, versus a stereotypical doctor/patient interaction. I don't view your issues as coming from an abnormal psychopathology, but instead as a reaction to living in a stressful, complex, and contradictory world. I seek to understand your issues in the context of your unique experience rather than viewing you as having something wrong or being broken. My focus is on what you need from me....I take my lead from you."

"It's a total crap shoot trying to choose a therapist, and you've been through this before. Maybe you have come close to making that first call several times but are filled with doubts and questions. You've gone to therapy but felt like the counselor didn't get you, or you have no idea how it could possibly help. Even worse, you're afraid of finding out something actually IS wrong with you. Maybe you've also been questioning yourself, believing you shouldn't feel the way you, or you've been called "too sensitive.""

"When a client comes to me for psychotherapy the first goal is to fully understand the nature of their discontent in the context of a warm, open, nonjudgmental space. We work together to create a vision of what it will look like when the client is feeling more content, and then within the therapeutic relationship move toward change that will realize the client's vision. I am a combination of warm, supportive, directive, interpretive, and reflective. The therapy may be short term or long term, and may be individual or with significant others (family or partner)."
