"My practice centers on promoting change through love, compassion and acceptance. I assist clients in moving towards greater healing and wholeness by providing a safe and encouraging therapeutic relationship. You may have a sense that something isn't right in your life but aren't sure what it is. Or you may know what it is but have no idea how to change it. Maybe you see yourself in a cycle of destructive relationships, thought patterns or behaviors. Or you experience overwhelming negative emotions and don't know how to cope. You hope that if you just try harder or stay busy your situation will change and, when that doesn't work, you beat yourself up. Both avoiding and forcing change do not work because we cannot change until we first feel accepted as we are. Many of the issues we face are deep set and can't be changed overnight, whether its feelings of anxiety, a strong need to control our situation and people in our lives, failed romantic relationships, a low sense of self-worth or the after-effects of a traumatic experience. Making changes in these areas takes time and courage. The good news is you do not have to do it alone. "

"I offer a modern engaging style of therapy. My philosophical approach recognizes the struggles and pains we share as humans. Common themes include motivation, choice, isolation-connection, uncertainty, and awe. We look with curiosity at what is important to you - your wants and the obstacles that hinder you. Despite the pressures of others and of culture, and the "shoulds" that nag and haunt us, I believe that we move more freely and live more richly when we come to recognize our fears and trust our wants."
