Sometimes we come to a fork in the road and we may feel confused or scared. My job is to act as a guide and say, "not this way, try that way." People choose therapy for different reasons whether it be coping with life transitions, dealing with grief, or even a traumatic event that has occurred. Even though the road may be scary, you don't have to go it alone. My goal as a therapist is to build a collaborative relationship with you in order to help you cope and find hope.

You spend years looking for someone who gets you, someone who completes you in so many ways. Sometimes you just can't find that person. Or you always mess it up. Or you do make a life with someone, and then you discover that you're arguing all the time, hurt, and lonely. Maybe relationships are not your issue: It's a career thing, an illness or a loss that you can't bounce back from. As human beings, we seem to need to give ourselves to things, to love and be loved. So why is it so hard?

I work with individual adults and couples. COUPLES – Please do not wait until your relationship is in crisis before you contact a therapist. The longer negative, repetitive patterns and cycles of conflict and arguments continue, the harder and longer it takes to heal. Harsh words cannot be taken back. You will save time and money by contacting a therapist sooner than later. INDIVIDUALS – If you are feeling lonely, disconnected and stuck, I can help you make positive life-long changes.

My work as a Jungian Analyst emphasizes depth work with the symbolic dimensions of a person's individual life experiences through dreams, art and Jung's distinctive method of active imagination that allows the individual to enter into a constructive relationship with the unconscious. I find that many issues that bring people to therapy or analysis originate in an inability to find meaning in their everyday life, and that working within these "imaginal spaces" can contribute to a deeper understanding of the course one's life has taken and will take in the future.

Are you sick of feeling uncomfortable in your body? Are you exhausted from trying to battle the constant negative thoughts about yourself? You may even start to notice that these feelings and thoughts are getting in the way of you being able to enjoy your life. And so you try and reach out for support to family and friends. It helps to feel heard and yet you still aren't able to shake this self-doubt and sense that you just aren't good enough. You want to feel secure and confident, but trying to get there on your own just isn't working. It's become too tiring and confusing to feel better all on your own.
