"Often in life there are unexpected events or life transitions that challenge our abilities to cope or understand our sense of self or purpose. When what has been helpful to navigate life is no longer working, symptoms may show up in the form of sadness, depression, anxiety, stress, physical ailments, feelings of isolation, or an overwhelm of emotions that may be difficult to manage alone. I view therapy as a unique opportunity for honest observation and exploration in service of creating a deeper connection with your inherent nature as a way to discover how you can find support from yourself, as well as, feel supported by others."

"Am I doing it right? I feel like I should be happier. That’s why I studied so hard, got that degree, put in those extra hours at the office. But I’m not. Most days, I feel like an imposter. Like if someone really paid attention, I’d be in trouble. Everyone around me seems to just get it more than I do. Even maintaining the minimum is stressing me out. Maybe I didn’t pick the right career. But what would my parents say if I told them that? Or my friends? How can I ever keep up? You’re not the only one that feels that way. "

"Addiction covers a broad range of overindulgences: Drugs, alcohol, sex, internet and food all might be sources of concern. While they happily affect the reward center of our brain, they can also go underground to backfire by taking control of our will. Other means of self-soothing do exist and can be tried. The analyst C.G. Jung proposed to Bill, of 12-Step fame, that the alcoholic sought ‘spiritus’ through spirits. He knew that we also need purpose beyond ego. One friend met his 'moment of clarity' seeing his 5-year-old in the backseat as he did "speedballs" in the front. Thereafter, clean & sober! But to get there, we need help."

"I am curious about the inner stories that make people who they are. I became more in touch with my inner story after being pushed towards therapy by challenges I faced in my own life. Through therapy, I learned that old beliefs are like knots, and therapy can help you untangle them. The key to understanding my inner story was to pay attention to the wisdom of the body. Our bodies can communicate things that our mind does not know; getting in touch with this knowledge helps us become aware of our emotions."
