"Each of us holds within ourselves tremendous potential and an innate knowing of just what we need. I look at many symptoms as a creative, adaptive response to our environment that should be respected as such. Through positive connection with others, we can learn new ways of relating to our bodies, our spirits, and our world. I use a collaborative approach to treatment, with the belief that without your perspective and input, therapy will not be nearly as beneficial."

Lately, it seems as if you’re always saying, "I don’t understand how I got here.” Life isn’t quite turning out as you expected; you might even say that you feel lost. You think, "This relationship, job, school, body, mind, etc. is not how I want it to be." Maybe you're blaming yourself and telling yourself you are a failure. You feel broken. The truth is, you aren't broken. You are just stuck, and need help changing the unhealthy patterns that are keeping you from moving forward."

"My clients often tell me they seek therapy when beginning to question why their knowledge and hard work is not translating to increased life satisfaction. Some are finding the work-life balance lauded by media, family, friends, and colleagues to feel elusive. Others find quests for self-improvement are resulting in cycles of determined action followed by disappointment, self-doubt, and feelings of shame or inadequacy. Most want to live in a way that is aligned to their identities and values, but find this has often resulted in more pain. If any of these ring true to you- you are not alone, and your efforts have not been in vain. "
