"Are you unappreciated? Do you have trouble with intimacy and relationships? Do you feel unfulfilled? Are you depressed or stressed out and feel as if you just "can't go on"? Choosing a psychotherapist is an important--and often difficult--decision. I practice psychotherapy that it is interactive: I respond to what my clients tell me; I offer advice when appropriate; and provide guidance for deeper understanding when this can be helpful."

"Chances are, you have happened upon this website because you are looking for something to be different: a feeling, a relationship, a thought, a mood... Together, we will determine what needs to change by looking outside ourselves (exploring roles, rules, connection, boundaries, communication, and support) and by looking within ouselves (exploring thoughts, feelings, coping skills, internal dialogue, and how we've made meaning out of different experiences). Through the process of learning, accepting and changing, something inherently will be different...and you will feel different."

"It has not been easy. It's been hard to find your own voice, understand what is going on with you, and let go of secrets, shame, and other feelings that are overwhelming, heavy, or draining. Things happened in the past that still impact your life today. For a long time you've played roles in your relationships that you don't want to play anymore. You've had to pretend that you are someone you are not, that things are fine, while being worried about what could happen if people really knew you deep inside."

"I believe the therapeutic relationship is the crucible within which clients are helped to heal their pain. I take an active role in the therapeutic process by engaging with the client so he or she feels understood, respected, and seen. The feelings of shame, fear, anxiety and other painful emotions are soothed so the client feels taken care of. The clients I treat often come into therapy in a survival mode. I feel it is my mission to assist people in moving from survival to a life of thriving, self-empowerment and self-love."

"The purpose of therapy is to help you get beyond a state of elementary survival -to a place where there's energy to be creative, the drive to motivate yourself, some space to take a walk, and perhaps time to attend a class. You may ask yourself constantly: "Isn't there more to life than struggle? Instead of walking in circles wouldn't it be nice to expand your horizons and gain a new perspective? Therapy is the place to do such things. It's a safe environment to become more awake and to develop more fully your genuine Self."
