"You want things in your life to change, and you want them to change fast. I approach therapy from a practical perspective: part of our work together will be to help you determine what changes you want to make, and get started with some practical actions (yes, homework!). You can expect to see results fairly quickly, usually after 2 or 3 sessions. As we work together over 8-10 sessions, more deep-seated patterns may emerge, and you can decide to what extent you want to do this deeper change work."

"Seeking the assistance of a professional counselor is an important decision. Reaching out for help can be difficult, but once the decision has been made, most people, in my experience, find the outcome to be extremely rewarding. Stress, relationship difficulties, and career disenchantment are just a few of the normal issues that anyone may encounter over the course of one's life. Seeking an experienced and skilled counselor to help deal with any of these concerns is a demonstration of personal strength and healthy coping. "

"For more than 15 years I had the privilege of accompanying people along their inner journeys, looking to improve their lives. I work with people dealing with difficulties in relationships and within themselves, coping with strong emotions of fear, sadness, or anger. I meet people experiencing doubts about their identity, struggling to fulfill themselves, or having hard time coping with losses and transitions, such as immigration, divorce, retirement, loss of loved ones, and other changes that life brings about. I work with individuals as well as couples that face crises or want to improve and deepen their relationships."
