I see my role as a steadfast guide in helping my patients to deepen their connections with others and live life more fully. Oftentimes, we are not fully aware of the habits of thinking, feeling, and acting that shape our daily internal and interpersonal struggles. To live life in a more attentive and skillful way, it helps to discover the emotional and relational habits we live by, where they came from, and what keeps them going in the here and now. Habits that were once useful may now limit our ability to connect with others and find joy in living.
