"Psychotherapy is, most honestly, a very remarkable and often surprising kind of 'conversation.' The distinction being that when we have a 'conversation,' we only know where it will begin, but not where it will end. The 'getting there,' the movement toward 'the end,' is often a thought-provoking, pleasurable, funny, sad, profound experience that changes people in wholly positive ways. When therapist and patient develop a good working relationship, transformative things can happen. My work centers around creating a serious, useful, and private space to begin exploring the depths of what causes you to suffer, or feel misunderstood."

"People seek therapy for a variety of reasons: anxiety, depression, relationship complications, sexuality issues, to name just a specific few; or it may be a combination of issues, or even for reasons one cannot immediately put a finger on -- a general sense of "just not feeling right." Regardless the reasons, you likely found this site in a search for relief and/or a better understanding of where you find yourself at this particular moment in your own story. So now comes the (sometimes) daunting task of finding someone who might offer help."

"After 25 years of working in different corporate management roles I began my training as a psychotherapist. I had become disenchanted with the business world and was thinking of various career options. I was motivated to become a therapist in large part by weekly talks with a dear friend, who was fighting and eventually died from breast cancer. She told me that she thought I was more helpful than her therapist, and she encouraged me to change my career. I strive to provide clients with a calm environment where they feel safe in working on whatever brings them to therapy."
