"We're always growing, evolving. But it's not easy. Relationship or identity crises, anxiety, addictions, traumas of all kinds... They can lead to high levels of stress or to depression, and also push us forward toward personal growth: We can learn to utilize acceptance, coping skills, and healthy connections. Counseling is a place to talk, learn, and begin to rebuild -- a sense of trust, confidence, hope, and focus. It's to be expected that problems, issues, and various symptoms will appear at times in life. Reaching out for help, that moment of surrender, in recovery terms, is a special moment."

"Being 60+ and a hospice volunteer has heightened my sensitivity to the issues of aging well. My belief is that people are inherently resilient, and therefore capable of seeing the past in a way that can benefit the future. The therapeutic process is a blend of science and art, parallel to life, a journey (with frequent benchmarks) rather than a destination."

"I practice from a primarily integrative approach, with an emphasis on behavioral therapy. Any behavior is an intention to sustain the self; yet many times the preserving behavior exacerbates sadness, anger, etc. The most important pieces of therapy is to understand the past, own the present, and choose the future. These pieces are particularly important when working through trauma and circumstances outside of one's control. The story we all choose to believe about ourselves (factual or not) is what cultivates or stifles the joy of life."
