It may be that you or a loved one is experiencing depression or anxiety. Stress may be piling up as you try to balance the challenges of life, relationship, career, or family. Perhaps you are just not finding happiness. You may be caregiving for a parent, struggling with grief, or asking "Is this all there is?" As a therapist, I tap into your strengths and creativity so that you can create positive change in your life."

"Einstein said, 'We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used to create them.' I've found applying Buddhist ideas and Jungian techniques to one's problems can speed up a motivated person's desire to fulfill more of their potential, even while living in these manic times. Findings in neuroscience overwhelmingly confirm the efficacy of the long traditions of Buddhist thought on how to train oneself to abandon old, familiar reactions to life's difficulties that have become habitual. Neuroscience makes methods to become more aware much more accessible to our western ways of thinking."

"The Third Chapter (age 50-80) is a rich time for reworking our lives to assure we live authentically and with passion, while there's still time. This season is for laying to rest our traumas, regrets and failures, fantasies of what our life was going to be, and looking ourselves squarely in the eye with unbridled truth about who we really are, and who we might yet become. While we may have more time, finances, and wisdom, this chapter can also find us stuck, as anxiety takes the foreground and creativity seems to be a luxury we cannot afford. ."

Therapy can address gaps and overwhelm that happened in our earlier development as well as difficult crossroads, relationship issues and traumatic life events.

Authenticity, self-actualization, self-acceptance and connection to one's inner self are important concepts in my work."
