"I view therapy as a process that can facilitate healing and change, as well as understanding and fulfillment. Whether stuck in a conflicted relationship, feeling lost, struggling with depression or anxiety, adjusting to a transition or life change, feeling unable to break unhealthy patterns or resolve past issues and pain, it can be difficult to know where to start. Together, we can explore the issues you face and identify the direction you want your life to take and the steps needed to get you there. Once established, our relationship can provide the foundation and safety for this process."

"Anxious, stressed, worried. Life transitions grab you when you least expect them. Worry about losing a job – or actually losing it and having to decide whether to change fields or move to another city for a new job. The children are all out of the house – you didn’t think being an ‘empty nester’ would bother you – but it does! Should you or shouldn’t you separate or divorce? So many aspects you have to address. By working with an experienced therapist, you will learn about yourself and gain the skills you need to be calm and confident as you address life’s changes. "

"Losing a loved one can be the most difficult time in your life. Emotions are often surprising in their strength or mildness. Grief often breaks a person completely from inside out. Grieving is hard work, you can get worn out, and feel battered. It can take a lot longer to work through grief than most people realize. People around you may think it’s helpful for you to not talk or cry or focus on your loss but actually this is just what people need to do. The goal is to not stay stuck, to move through it—and this is part of the process. Grief doesn’t get better by ignoring it and trying to ‘get over it.’ "
