"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."

"When difficulties are too much to handle or the next level of growth seems just out of reach, you may find yourself living with pain and stress. While some stress in life helps people grow, chronic stress has a negative effect on your mind, body, emotions and spirit. You may find yourself using old mental, physical and emotional coping tools to survive, feeling powerless to bring real change. As your ally in holistic healing, I offer a supportive, warm presence so you can explore what's difficult, hone your strengths, and gain simple yet powerful mind/body tools."

"Damaged relationships with the world and our families can affect us deeply throughout our lives leaving us feeling isolated, uncomfortable in our bodies and generally unsafe. Our energy begins to decline along with our enthusiasm for life. Its confusing. We quietly stonewall everything and everyone while wishing for the right partner, right career and right friends. Feelings of insecurity, loneliness or shame can spiral into deep bouts of depression, acting out, despair and suicide. Prioritizing the needs of everyone else can lead to unhealthy behaviors and choices supplanting authenticity and joy, while swapping virtual reality for real relationships and happiness."
