"Taking the first step in finding a therapist can be daunting, but once you find the right fit, it can be a turning point in your life. As your therapist, my job is to listen carefully as we work through the issues you are struggling with now, but also figuring out how they became issues in the first place. It's this understanding that brings on real change. Sometimes, all it takes is fresh eyes and a new perspective to help you move forward from whatever is holding you back. You don't have to do this alone!"

"My sessions offer a unique perspective drawing from years of research and teaching that can include reflection on history, culture, biology, psychology and spirituality. I may be one of the least judgmental and most insightful professionals you will ever meet! I endeavor to help you to understand the social, cultural and family structures that have led you to seek help. Once we establish what has inhibited the core expression of all you can be and how you might love, we will work to reposition harmful and limiting paradigms. Working with me can be a deep adventure in discovering "what else is possible.""

"Carl Jung clearly articulated the principle that drives my passion as a therapist, 'I am not what happened to me, I am what I choose to become.' Each of us possess an internal fortitude to heal, learn and integrate our experiences. Sometimes recognizing these resources is challenging. Whatever your struggle, therapy has the potential to provide you an unparalleled experience in your desire to heal, grow and thrive. I promise to create a safe place where you can rediscover hope and find the tools to overcome obstacles that have become barriers to your freedom."
