" When you're looking for a Therapist, it's not an easy time. You’ve struggled to change behavior patterns, communicate better and gotten nowhere, Now you feel powerless as well as in a mess. If someone has mentioned you talking to a professional, you could often catch yourself anxiously focusing on what you imagine other people are thinking about you. You might be surprised at the amount of relief you can feel by talking to a caring, invested but objective professional about what's going on and getting some perspective. You can start exactly where you are. "

"We all have strategies for dealing with stress day-to-day. But over time, many strategies can fall short or even backfire. We may find ourselves withdrawing and avoiding certain aspects of our lives, or overextending and pushing ourselves to the point of exhaustion. This can leave us feeling anxious, depressed, and irritable and can also take a toll on our relationships and physical health. One of my goals as a therapist is to help you identify changes you can make, both big and small, and tap into your motivation to follow-through on those changes."

"Are you disillusioned and asking yourself how your working relationship got this bad or hard? You and your business partner had a great business idea and decided to launch a business together. It seemed so promising at first. Even more so if your partner is also your friend, sibling, or spouse. You knew there would be ups and downs. Now that you are mid-stream, the business is bringing out the stressed and critical sides of both of you more than ever. It feels overwhelming and at times, unbearable. And yet, you are under the gun to make it work."

You may have suffered traumas or losses and are wondering how these shape your thoughts, feelings and relationships.
