"The essence of my work lies in creating a relationship with you in which you would feel safe to engage in an inner journey home - opening your heart to yourself, cultivating compassionate self-understanding and developing trust in what is being felt in the moment. Old hurts and self-defeating beliefs can cause us to defend against vulnerable feelings impacting our capacity to trust, ourselves and others, and our ability to connect intimately, think positively regarding our deepest life concerns and open to love, allowing it to work its way through us impacting and inspiring all areas of our life."

"A satisfactory relationship to one's self is the most significant element in finding a way through life's challenges. Sometimes this pathway feels chaotic, confused, conflicted, or just not strong enough. Sometimes life experiences overwhelm our capacities to contain and reflect on their meaning for us in a way that keeps us from our potential as persons, as partners, or as an employee/job holder. Therapy offers an opportunity to listen to yourself in an uniquely individual, finely-tuned, non-judgmental way. Fears, sadnesses, and blocked places may all find they have something important to reveal to us when explored in a therapeutic relationship."

"Anxiety, sadness, anger, regret are natural and human, but when one is stuck thinking and feeling these ways, something is wrong. If you are stuck, repeating the same kinds of experiences, or if there has been an unmanageable disruption in your life, I have been in practice helping people in similar situations for more than 20 years. Through talking and thinking together to deeply understand your experience, we discover and create new ways for you to think and act in the world. Your sense of self and of life expand, opening up space in which to move, breathe and grow."

"Whether or not they say it, most of the people that I see want to live a life that is worth living. They want to feel empowered-- to be active participants in their lives. You may feel a void, emptiness, and that something is missing. Often people feel stuck in their lives because they have lost connection with a vital part of themselves and with their hopes and desires. This vitality is the source of our imagination and creativity. This internal source and "knowing" of what we need and want becomes disconnected, covered over by past disappointments, losses and fears."

Therefore our pain, trauma and grief are all firmly connected in a matrix. I mainly work with those of us who are outside the margins of dominant culture and are especially vulnerable. I work from a non pathologizing stance. I believe healing occurs on many levels, in many ways. Psychotherapy is one path to emotional wellness.
