"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."

"Addiction can take control of your life and make you feel like you have no power or control over your choices. I can help you take back control and beat substance abuse. If you've made the decision to "kick the habit" and have been unsuccessful in the past, I can help. Addiction is not who you are but something you can overcome. I have been counseling those with substance problems for over 15 years. We are all unique and there is more than one way to treat addiction, I don't believe in "one-size fits all" treatment."

"You look around, the common culture doesn't reflect your ethnicity, gender expression, ability, or sexual orientation. You don't fit into a neat little box. The stress of not fitting in, or having to explain or feel guilty for who you are has taken over. Is this how it's gonna be for the rest of my life? - you wonder...and it makes you tired. My clients come to me to overcome doubt, build confidence. I use techniques to help them slow down and listen to their inner voice so it's so loud and clear that anxiety has no room to stay."
