"Therapy is a gift of time and of a safe, supportive space for self-examination. Therapy provides awareness of the choice to shape our lives in meaningful ways. It's a collaborative process between client and therapist facilitating personal growth through exploration of the client's unique beliefs, feelings and behaviors. Pasts influence present realities in ways that are often outside of our awareness, and thus have a profound impact on how we view ourselves, connections to others, and place in the world. Losses and changes create disillusionment and helplessness if not processed to allow forward movement and renewed meaning."

"Utilizing EMDR & other approaches, I work with individuals who are experiencing symptoms of anxiety, depression, and trauma, as well as those going through life transitions looking for change. Because healing and growth occur interpersonally, therapy can be an impactful addition to one's life during difficult and challenging times. If you're feeling overwhelmed by emotions or stress, or feel like you're current life is being impacted by past events, there is absolutely hope out there. Many of the leading brain-body therapies now available are targeted for these types of experiences."

"While traditional psychotherapy utilizes theories and skills that focus on eliciting change, Transformation Therapy uses theories and skills that elicit transformation. Whats the difference between change and transformation? Change is a difficult task to accomplish. What do I mean by this? Take for example that old saying "When life hands you lemons turn them into lemonade". We cannot change the fact that life has handed us a lemon specifically, as we cannot change the make-up of the actual lemon. However we can transform the lemon through creation- into sweet and delicious lemonade!"
