"I believe you have the potential to realize the desires deep within your heart. It takes courage to confront fears and overcome mental and emotional hurdles that block our best intentions. Circumstances most often out of our control can cause feelings of doubt, lonelines, lack of fulfillment and even a loss of hope. In our attempt to quiet an overwhelming sense of distress, we sometimes adopt beliefs and behaviors that are at best, self-compromising. I would be honored to accompany you on your journey towards wholeness. Together we will embrace truth, transcend pain and create a more meaningful life through freedom and choice. "

"Life is often about transitions and how we seek to find balance in the face of change. We all experience times when those transitions move beyond our coping ability and that is often the time we seek out support. I work to provide an inclusive, socially aware and intersectional environment to support my clients as they navigate those issues. I have a passion for social justice work and bring that perspective to the room with the awareness that society has an impact on our mental and emotional well-being as well as our personal experiences."

These feelings may be related to issues such as their family of origin, their current relationship, their job, their health, their sexuality or other areas of life. While I have on occasion worked with children and adolescents, I work primarily with adults in individual, couples and group psychotherapy. I find it fulfilling to work with people to make positive changes in their lives."

""Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one's courage." - Anaïs Nin. The minute a person picks up that phone or sends an email requesting an appointment there is courage realized. Sometimes our world shrinks when we are feeling sad or hurt and it takes courage to break through. It is my sincere belief that we are full of endless possibilities. I also know that reaching out for a guide to help become unstuck is the first step to freeing those possibilities. The human condition and our powerful ability to heal is my passion."

I work collaboratively with clients to define actionable goals and identify issues (conscious and unconscious) that act as barriers to long term psycho-emotional health. Philosophically, I embrace the idea that individuals often have the answers they seek to difficult questions.
