I look forward to meeting each new client and getting to know him or her. I know with our busy lives we all have a number of stressors and conflicts. Sometime our usual ways of dealing with these no longer work. My goal is to help you find effective ways to deal with these stressors, so that you can complete therapy feeling happier, more in charge of your life, and can reach that place deep inside where each of us is our very best self.

You're not sure why, but you find yourself feeling anxious and empty when you wake up in the morning. As a young adult in your 20's or 30's, your life looks pretty good on paper. But something is missing. You're not certain who you are anymore, and you are questioning your path, your relationships, or maybe your day-to-day grind. Lately, you've been doubting your self-worth and contribution. Or maybe a little voice has always been there, disparaging what you do, what you say, and who you are. You are tired of feeling muzzled, muted, and half-alive.

If I were to pick one theme that runs through my therapy work, it would have to be Empowerment. I believe completely in people's abilities to change their own lives. In whatever age, gender, sexuality, ethnicity, or culture we feel we belong to; we have the power to decide how to respond, perceive, define, believe, and present ourselves to others. I feel my role as a therapist is to ask questions, be curious and draw out the power of each person's own spiritual, emotional, and relational authority over their own lives.
