"I enjoy being a psychotherapist because it provides me the opportunity to help people resolve the issues that are causing them distress. I work with adults, children, and families, and understand that each person is a unique individual with his or her unique life circumstances, history, and social and cultural context. A goal of our work together will be to help you identify and understand the conflicts that may be causing you difficulty, and to help you overcome them. Or perhaps negative thinking patterns cause you to experience sadness, loneliness, hopelessness, fear, or other unwanted emotions."

"ASSERTIVENESS COACHING: GET WHAT YOU WANT AND IMPROVE RELATIONSHIPS Most of us don't like conflict. Some of us worry that by expressing our true feelings, we will be seen as selfish or confrontational. Fearing rejection, we push their needs aside, but are disappointed when we don't get what we want. This cycle can lead to withdrawal, resentment, anger, and depression. Being assertive is often confused with self-centeredness and aggression. Learning the difference can pave the way to greater self expression, and life satisfaction."

"Therapy should be both practical and authentically personal. I've found that most people seek therapy to solve a specific problem, and we usually start by focusing on this. However, I've also found that most people leave therapy citing their connection with their therapist as being the most transformative and important element of their treatment. I think these are complementary goals, and I hope to combine practical problem-solving with an authentic personal connection to help you find your happiest life."

"I believe that coming to therapy is about making a home in ourselves: a home where we feel at ease, where all the different parts of us are okay and we don't feel that something is wrong with who we are. When life gets hard we can feel isolated and cutoff - from the people around us, and also from ourselves. When we most need to feel compassion towards ourselves it can be hardest to find. My work is to help you find that compassion for yourself and to support you in strengthening your capacity to meet whatever life brings with courage and confidence."

"You're fighting with your romantic partner, and the littlest things become a big deal. After fighting without resolving things, feeling that distance between you can feel difficult or lonely. It's like the fights just take over, get out of control and one or both of you either backs away suddenly or says things they regret later. Deep down, you know what's been happening isn't working. You're ready to ask for help because you need that outside perspective and guidance to get out of this stuck place. It might seem difficult to imagine how, but you know you need to try something different if you're going to save the relationship that means so much to you both."

"A clinical and developmental psychologist with over 30 years experience, I work with adults, parents and children from birth through adolescence. Development is a continual balance of equilibrium and disequilibrium; a lifelong process as bodies, brains, relationships and expectations change. Vulnerabilities, discomfort and negative emotions also create unseen opportunity for growth and change. From infancy on, we all have an inner vitality into which therapy can allow us to tap. Therapy provides a safe protected space that nurtures exploration, reflection, growth and change."
