"When faced with anxiety or depression, you often wonder if there is anything you can do to truly feel better or transform yourself. It seems like you’ve tried everything, and nothing has worked. Mood issues are causing other issues -trouble relating with others, over/under eating, problems with work or family relationships or even more serious issues. The “real you” is in there but you just can’t seem to regain a good sense of self. It is hard to reach out to a counselor because you know you need to find someone non-judgmental. "

"Life in general, can be challenging. I believe in the healing power of telling your story in a judgement-free environment where you feel safe. Research consistently shows it is the quality of the therapeutic relationship, more than any other factor including the method of therapy, predicting the clients’ ability to use therapy to help themselves and make positive life changes. Therapy does not always solve the problems brought to it, but the best chance for success is when there is a strong therapeutic relationship. To me, the critical foundation of our counseling relationship is a partnership based on mutual respect and honesty."

"What motivates change? Emotional pain and disconnection often propels individuals to reach out and ask for help. Clients come to me when they are sick and tired of being sick and tired. Clients can lighten their load by being seen and heard in a safe environment. I work with individuals, couples and families who want to stop spinning through the same old ineffective cycles, alter old habits and step towards a more satisfying life. My practice is rooted in experiential therapy, which uses multiple senses along with talk therapy to process past experiences and accomplish goals. "
