"Everyone goes through challenging situations in life & while you may have successfully navigated through other difficulties you've faced, there's nothing wrong with seeking out extra support. Therapy can be a tremendous asset to managing personal growth, interpersonal relationships, marriage issues, & the hassles of daily life. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life. By applying a variety of therapeutic approaches we can explore long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling & meaningful life."

"Intimate relationships could be difficult to maintain and understand. Sometimes we are left confused and hurt by the behaviors and words of others. Our responses to these unfortunate behaviors might create a negative reaction which could worsen the injury and feelings of despair. Having a personal psychotherapist with whom to explore some of these problems could be very rewarding and refreshing. Finding new assertive ways to express our emotions might assist in the healing of those past injuries. We have relationships with partners, family members, friends, co-workers, etc., that might expose us to some conflicts that need healing. "

My approach to treatment is to work closely with you in exploring and understanding the impact of your past with mindful attention to present problem solving. Therapeutic work requires a safe and confidential place to share your pain and struggles.
