Sometimes life is just hard; it hurts and things just don’t seem fair or right. Perhaps you are experiencing loss, a struggle, dealing with grief, setbacks in life, feelings of sadness or despair, anxious or just unsure of how to cope. Life feels upside down. While such feelings are difficult and real, pain and growth in life can coexist. What is most important is, today you have taken a positive first step seeking support. You have made a choice to do something different with your life. Our mind, which means our thinking, our brain and our body serve as indicators of what's working or not. Thinking gets stuck or we miss signals.

CURRENTLY NOT ABLE TO ACCEPT NEW CLIENTS. I have spent a career helping individuals and families who are struggling with life stress and life changes. Many of my clients are in the process of adapting to a new culture, making major life transitions or dealing with issues after living abroad for many years. These transitions can easily leave you feeling sad, anxious, and isolated, and can change the way you feel about your life and your relationships. I can help bridge the challenges you are facing with creating a life that feels more settled, satisfying and meaningful.

You don't have to struggle alone in your difficulties. You can access encouragement and strength to live well. I offer a safe harbor and secure relationship for you to discuss your needs and problems. I enjoy working with people who feel stuck in negative situations or relationships, but feel puzzled about how to improve or change them. Collaboratively, we solve problems and/or rework the patterns that perpetuate the negative situations. We would explore any contributions of the past to the present so you can detach from the old patterns. Eventually, you will feel freer and more empowered to make desired choices in life.

I believe therapy is about empowering individuals, couples, and families to resolve their unique issues by gaining a better understanding of themselves, others and their current situations. I also work with individuals to identify underlying issues that effect one's sense of self and unsatisfying relationships. Goals for many of my clients include identity development, increasing self-esteem, experiencing more meaningful relationships, gaining a stronger understanding of themselves, finding a sense of fulfillment and meaning in life, and resolving longstanding issues that keep them from achieving their desires and goals.

I view my work as helping people find new ways of relating. This includes how we relate to thoughts -- turning the volume down when they're too noisy, or listening carefully for new meaning in whatever you just said out loud. It can include accepting emotions despite having the urge to escape them. And it can include how we relate to people -- learning to speak directly about what we need despite how vulnerable it makes us feel, or choosing to hold back when normally we would rush in and share too much.

Many of my clients relate to the experience of feeling "othered", different or as existing outside of culturally-constructed margins. In our increasingly isolationist world, feeling different or other is becoming a common experience. While many things may remind us of our difference, or "non-normativity", in therapy I aim to collaboratively uncover and identify the worth and purpose that I believe exist in all humxn beings. I believe that all concerns, struggles, challenges, curiosities and explorations brought to therapy are related to relationships--the relationship we have with ourselves and other people. Often, clients express a need for deep connection and goals involve enhancing relationships, identifying emotions, coping more effectively with emotions, and nourishing self-worth and confidence. Research on therapeutic effectiveness has repeatedly demonstrated that therapeutic relationship is the principle determinant of positive therapeutic outcome. Thus, when I first meet clients, client-therapist relationship and chemistry is the primary emphasis and catalyst for change.
