"I enjoy being a psychotherapist because it provides me the opportunity to help people resolve the issues that are causing them distress. I work with adults, children, and families, and understand that each person is a unique individual with his or her unique life circumstances, history, and social and cultural context. A goal of our work together will be to help you identify and understand the conflicts that may be causing you difficulty, and to help you overcome them. Or perhaps negative thinking patterns cause you to experience sadness, loneliness, hopelessness, fear, or other unwanted emotions."

"If you are seeking therapy there may be some good reasons that I would be a good fit for you. You may have tried many different methods of healing but find that there are places that you have not been able to tend to alone. These may be places that are very overt or hidden from view due to cultural, social or economic issues. They may be longstanding or new, but they are causing confusion and suffering at this time. These issues may involve gender or sexuality, complex grief, or cumulative trauma. This is a perfect time to seek help."

"If you're here you may be feeling stuck, frustrated, unfulfilled, and uncertain about what to do. Try as we might, we often can't make changes in the areas of life that matter most to us - relationships, family, love, and sex. At the same time, we may feel hesitant to ask for help, fearing that we may be judged or not find relief. Asking for help is a characteristic of successful, happy people, and is the first step to building the life that you want."

"I believe that as human beings, we are hard-wired with the need to get our emotional experience into the mind of a trusted other. My work as a psychotherapist is to find emotional resonance with my clients' life experiences, deriving both from their family of origin and from present-day situations and relationships. Whether a client is depressed, anxious, struggling with relationship problems, trying to overcome traumatic experiences, or trying to find their own unique, personal voice in a complex world, talking in psychotherapy can help to expand your capacity for growth and happiness."
