"Psychotherapy is one instrument of change for feeling better. For example, earlier psychic injuries may alert us when faced with challenges making us anxious, depressed, endure sleep problems or feel out of balance some way. Long term recovery from addiction, grieving and loss, chronic illness or pain may call for deeper work. Many stress points show up in relationships, at work or in how we feel. Life transitions (starting or ending a career, big changes in relationships/family, starting a young family or retirement ) are important passages in our lives and therapy can be a great guide."

"Are you here because you're having a "dark night of the soul" and feeling hopeless? Or do you want to change a relationship pattern that keeps repeating no matter how much you try? Perhaps you want to transform your low self-esteem and FINALLY believe in yourself...You know that something has to change, but what and how? You have most likely thought yourself in circles around the problem, but you cannot think your way out of this one. Does all that thinking send you spiraling out and anxious, your inner-critic having a field day?"

"You feel like you’re walking through life in a fog. You’ve gone through all the motions, and done all the “right things,” to get to this point in life, and yet it still isn't enough. There’s so much that you’re hiding on the inside, so much that you want to get out, but it’s scary to do that. The thoughts and inner critic are so loud, that it’s hard to imagine them not being there. We’ve learned so many survival skills to get us to this point in life, and they’ve worked. They’ve gotten you here and that’s amazing! But are they still serving you? What place do they have in your life now? "

"Beginning therapy is similar to finally summoning the courage to open wide the door of that overwhelmingly packed closet in your home. While this task can seem daunting at first, the company of a non-judgmental guide can make the undertaking manageable and even rewarding. As this guide, I will support you in taking inventory of what you've kept hidden away for years, possibly due to shame, fear, anxiety, grief or the uncertainty of how to move past old habits. You will develop resilience through listening to your inner wisdom, resourcing self support and expanding your capacity for joy."
