"When individuals, couples, families or children make the difficult decision to come to therapy they are usually feeling stuck and often scared. Each of us has our own strength and wisdom which we don't see when we are troubled. My goal is for us to work together to rediscover those qualities. I use a cattail plant as a symbol of how I see therapy. Why? Cattails are found stuck in a marsh and often regarded as weeds. But when looked at carefully they are graceful and strong. Let me help you find your strength and grace."

"Good therapy is life changing. It is a chance to figure things out and find ways to propel yourself, your relationship or your child into an easier, happier life. In my experience worry, resentment, fatigue, addiction, chronic sadness or conflict are not signs of weakness, but signs of having tried to handle too much for too long, alone."
