"Would you like to decrease feelings of shame and self-judgment, expand and deepen your connections with yourself or others, manage anxiety/depression or work through challenging experiences, relationships or ongoing struggles? Many people feel unhappy in their lives for reasons they can't identify. They often have a vague sense that they are "missing out" or not living the life they want to live. Some people feel "stuck" in some uncomfortable pattern of behavior. Whatever brings you to therapy, I firmly believe in our capacity to heal, in our own innate wisdom and our ability to know greater peace and joy,"

"As a child and family therapist, I see my clients as unique puzzles with mismatched pieces. My goal is to reorganize these puzzle pieces into the right places by helping families develop awareness around how problem behaviors fulfill functional purposes for their children and guide the child in developing healthier behaviors. I work with all members of the child's system through parent meetings; individual child counseling; family therapy; and collaborations with all willing caregivers, teachers, and other service providers involved with the child (e.g., school social workers, psychiatrists, pediatricians, other therapists, etc.).

"You are professionally successful and people think you have it all together. You have worked hard to get where you are and on the outside it looks like you’re thriving. But on the inside you wonder if you’re still missing something. You take even the most mild feedback critically and feel like a failure. You doubt yourself and the decisions you’ve made so far. You wonder if you have what it takes to keep it all going and continue to prove yourself. You have attained the goals that you thought you wanted, but you still lay awake at night worrying that you’re not enough. "

"Sharing one's thoughts and feelings with a complete stranger can seem awkward and bizarre. My goal early on in therapy is to make the experience feel as comfortable as possible by creating a space without judgement and aiming to understand you as a whole person, rather than simply a set of symptoms or a diagnosis. I believe that we all have the capacity to overcome life's many obstacles and live closer to our fullest potential. Although therapy is ultimately very serious, I use humor whenever possible so it doesn't feel like you're talking to a robot."
