"I enjoy being a psychotherapist because it provides me the opportunity to help people resolve the issues that are causing them distress. I work with adults, children, and families, and understand that each person is a unique individual with his or her unique life circumstances, history, and social and cultural context. A goal of our work together will be to help you identify and understand the conflicts that may be causing you difficulty, and to help you overcome them. Or perhaps negative thinking patterns cause you to experience sadness, loneliness, hopelessness, fear, or other unwanted emotions."

"What brings you here is something important. It could be a specific question, thought, problem, or pattern that is causing you anxiety or distress. There may have been a sudden emotional upheaval through experience of a difficult loss, a painful or exciting transition, or a traumatic event. Or, it could be that the issue bringing you is not exactly clear, hasn't yet been formulated in words, or feels more like a general malaise. Our work may be long or short-term, depending on the nature of this dilemma. Whatever the cause, the techniques I utilize for listening and hearing prompt you to speak on a register that leads to change. "
