"I view therapy as a process that can facilitate healing and change, as well as understanding and fulfillment. Whether stuck in a conflicted relationship, feeling lost, struggling with depression or anxiety, adjusting to a transition or life change, feeling unable to break unhealthy patterns or resolve past issues and pain, it can be difficult to know where to start. Together, we can explore the issues you face and identify the direction you want your life to take and the steps needed to get you there. Once established, our relationship can provide the foundation and safety for this process."

"I believe that our relationship is a partnership and that my role is to get a better understanding of how you approach life and how that approach either helps or hinders what you want. It is my experience in working with clients that all behaviors, thoughts and feelings are rational given past experience. Challenges in relationships and well-being are often developed when previously effective behaviors are no longer helpful in a new environment or under a new set of experiences. "

Worry about losing a job – or actually losing it and having to decide whether to change fields or move to another city for a new job. The children are all out of the house – you didn’t think being an ‘empty nester’ would bother you – but it does! Should you or shouldn’t you separate or divorce? So many aspects you have to address. By working with an experienced therapist, you will learn about yourself and gain the skills you need to be calm and confident as you address life’s changes. "
