"With each of my clients, I cultivate a compassionate, non-judgmental, and supportive environment. I believe that the therapeutic relationship provides a safe space for identity exploration, so that you can more fully embody your truth in your day-to-day life. While a sense of progress is integral to the therapeutic journey, we will create a personalized understanding of what growth looks like for you, rather than settling for more prescriptive goals. As a relational therapist, I help people foster deeper understanding and self-awareness, overcome unhelpful and defeating patterns, and build self-esteem. "

"When facing life's difficult challenges, it is good to know that there are places that you can turn to for help and guidance. However, finding a gay therapist can be anxiety producing because when people decide they would benefit from seeing a therapist, they are often experiencing significant upset in their lives. This is usually not the ideal moment to be dealing with the stress involved in finding someone with whom it feels safe and right to be vulnerable."

"Psychotherapy is about change and growth, an endeavor that takes commitment and courage. Change can be painful at times and often scares us, so we rather stay within the bounds of old but familiar patterns of going about our lives. To have someone you trust to guide you through the change process can make all the difference. A genuine and supportive therapeutic relationship can help you take an honest look at your feelings and thoughts about yourself and your relationships with others, which will bring about the change that removes the barriers to a healthy and fulfilled life."

"Psychotherapy lets people be their most 'authentic' selves and live at their highest potential; it also helps them understand barriers to optimal living. Expecting that you have all the answers is not realistic, and entering therapy is a helpful step to deepening understanding, resolving problematic relational patterns and simply making changes. Also,Therapy need not be a 'lifelong process'. I have a proven track record working with people achieving results. My treatment approach combines a Relational psychodynamic frame with goal-focused techniques. I tend to work very interactively with clients relationally, while also allowing abundant space for clients their own insights and self-reflection."

"Therapy works best when it helps us get in touch with things we are unaware of and which cause us discomfort. We are all motivated to avoid painful thoughts, feelings, and memories. That lack of awareness can sometimes cause pain or worry, or influence the way we behave and create difficulties in our personal and professional lives. Together we will discover and process these painful thoughts and feelings in a safe and supportive environment. This process can take a lot of work but can be transformative, often leading to a greater sense of personal choice and freedom."
