"I believe that healing can come from numerous sources, but one of the most powerful is through interpersonal connections. In my work, I provide a space for vulnerability and understanding that allows these connections to foster change. Therapy is like an objective mirror that reflects thoughts, feelings, and emotions. Through this mirror, you can begin to see a clearer picture of yourself, so much so, that eventually you can carry that image outside of the therapy room and be happy and confident in what you see. I believe to have this image, you must strengthen yourself and the relationships that are in it."

"Most people looking for a relationship therapist wish they could make changes, but don't know how. What they have tried has not worked. Everyone has irresolvable issues. Never do we have the exact same desire for money in the bank, sexual frequency, social activities, neatness, or parenting ideas (etc.) This is built-in conflict. This built-in conflict carries with it the seeds for growth and connection that would not happen in any other way. Living in distress is so awful and so curable.
