"The human experience is full of ups and downs. Sometimes life can feel overwhelming due to many reasons. At times we need a place to process outside of our family and friend circle. Psychotherapy can give you the opportunity to have a "safe space" where you can discuss and problem solve what is making you feel "stuck," dissatisfied or unhappy without judgment. Everyone has a personal story to tell. How one tells their story, and processes it, affects how they will feel. By developing a narrative that is strength-based, you can move towards improved well-being and an increased sense of hope. "

"I believe that we all face friction in our relationships and day-to-day living. Consistently encountering the same types of issues, however, can be the result of blind spots that blur our view of reality. Psychotherapy exists, in part, to help identify these areas of hazy perception and to resolve them over time. And with improved clarity come choices that are more plentiful, more attainable, and more likely to result in an improved appreciation of everything around us -including ourselves. This process can only happen in a safe, non-threatening environment."

"How does "therapy" work? Psychotherapy works by helping you look at feelings, thoughts and behavior in situations which you find problematic. It helps you to learn more effective ways in dealing with those situations. Psychotherapy is a collaborative effort. You and I will identify your goals -- what you want to have happen, and agree on how you'll know when you're making progress. I will talk to you about the length of time it may take to help you see changes. Progress, and change, can happen."
