"Life has ups and downs; many times we negotiate these with our own skills and support from others. Sometimes, however, the burdens feel like more than we can handle. Sometimes we just feel alone and misunderstood, even by those that usually support us. We may even start to question what we know about ourselves. It is at these times that therapy may be especially helpful. Therapy can assist you in better understanding yourself and the challenges you are facing. This awareness empowers you to make healthy changes and develop new skills and strengths."

"I believe that all humans are innately driven to seek balance and congruence, and that when this drive is disrupted, whether it be due to emotional difficulties, relational stressors, or other life changes, we begin to suffer. It is my privilege to accompany my clients in their process of establishing balance and integration, ultimately achieving a sense of wholeness and security. I recognize that sometimes talk therapy isn't enough so I use a variety of additional therapies, including EMDR, which facilitate change by reprocessing emotionally-charged memories or experiences that often show up as physical sensations in the body."
