Do you ever feel alone? Do you feel that there's more to everything than this? I believe that within every person exists enormous power. At some point in all of our lives, we face what I refer to as a "void." The void is the symbolic space we create for whatever is missing in our lives; what we imagine will make us feel complete. We spend massive amounts of energy attempting to fill this void with negative relationships, substances, money, possessions, etc., and yet somehow we still end up feeling empty.

It takes courage to start working with a new therapist. The very fact that you’re considering it probably means you’re getting ready to make some significant changes in your life. My approach to therapy focuses on understanding and accepting you as you are right now, and creating a safe space where you can figure out where you want to go from here. We’ll work together as you get ready to make the sometimes tough (and rewarding) changes that will give you a better life. We will also deal with any stresses you're experiencing due to the coronavirus, including the isolation of sheltering in place and uncertainties about the future.

*NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS* The only thing scarier than change, is thinking things will never change. We love our partner, yet we fear love may not be enough. The relationship seems stuck. We constantly miscommunicate. We fight even when there’s nothing wrong. It doesn’t have to be like this and we don’t have to find someone new to have a new relationship. I honor the courage and strength it takes to ask for help. Together we will slow down the process, identify harmful relational patterns, and replace those dysfunctional patterns with new more satisfying interactions.
