"I believe people are generally resilient and have a natural capacity to heal from trauma and stress, though the very nature of traumatic experience can impact our nervous system's capacity to heal. This often takes a serious toll on well being, accumulating over time. It may show up as depression, anxiety, relationship tension, health conditions and/or some type of self-harming behavior. I welcome your call to discuss your personal needs and whether my approach might be a good fit. I'll do my best to help you get connected to the most optimal resources for your unique circumstances."

Are you disappointed or frustrated that even after achieving certain things in your life you still feel empty, unfulfilled, or more unsatisfied than you would like to?

"Change is an inevitable part of life. The lack of change or too much change can overwhelm us and derail our growth. No one escapes hardship and stress. During these times we need the trust, respect, and empathy of an impartial professional especially when family and friends are just too close to the matter. With more than 20 years of clinical practice, I've found that the healthier person reaches out for help beyond their immediate sphere. I see myself as a guide facilitating my patients' healthy risk taking and helping them manifest their visions for a better future."
