"What I'm especially good at is helping people get clarity about their relationships and their boundaries. This means I work well with individuals in difficult marriages, children and parents trying to establish adult bonds, codependent people, and with anyone who wants warmer, happier, more peaceful interactions in their life. If you can't figure out why your relationships go off the rails, I can help. I like to work with adults, teens and parents, couples, minor-attracted persons (non-offending pedophiles), LGBTQ folks and people who don't know why they feel bad. "

"My approach to therapy is to create a context in which individuals, couples and families can know themselves in terms of their inherent strengths, competencies and capacities. I believe that when people experience themselves this way, they are most able to deal with stress, disruption, anxiety and depression in their lives. In my work with families and couples, I focus on interpersonal connection and work to help people experience the ways in which they make a positive difference to one another."

"You get annoyed at the question “where are you from?” because the answer is a complicated story. Everyone thinks that you are “exotic” because you or your family are from a different country, little do they know that you are constantly questioning how you fit into expectations from society and your family. You embrace being “quirky”, “a misfit,” "different” but only on the inside and only to a select group of people. You feel exhausted wearing multiple masks, being “too much” for some people in your life and “not enough” for others. Maybe it’s time to make a change and discover the courage you never knew you had.
