"Life is full of difficult choices and complicated circumstances but it is meant to be active, happy and full. Many people find themselves living a life of quiet desperation instead of the life they want. This can be because of genetic vulnerabilities, a childhood that was not sensitive to what you needed in specific developmental stages, or choices that have not supported you. Instead of trying harder at the same old solutions, I help you to shift your level of functioning and satisfaction. Research supports rewiring the neural networks in our brain to bring real and lasting change. I provide a warm, safe place to change. "

"It takes courage to slow down and look inside, and no one should face their pain and suffering alone. In a society that equates vulnerability to weakness, it’s no wonder so many of us have difficulty with our most treasured relationships. As children, we take cues from our caregivers and develop strategies to keep ourselves safe. Over time, these strategies become rigid patterns that negatively impact our functioning and relationships. When we realize the strategies that once protected us are actually the source of our distress, leaving us feeling isolated, exhausted, and hopeless, the opportunity for growth truly begins."
