"Having an addiction is a struggle most people just don't understand. Our partners, friends, and family members let us know how much they are hurt by what's going on but they don't understand how much you think of stopping, or even try to stop, but something gets in the way. Maybe you've even tried the groups or been in a program, but you just stay on the relapse loop. I've dedicated my life's work to helping addicts understand themselves better in order to shake the demons that keep them locked in their addiction."

"Relationships can be wonderful at the best of times, and downright painful at the worst of times. How well do you understand your reactions in these distressed moments? Your partner's? Do you feel out of control? Do you feel disconnected? These are just two ways that people can respond to relational distress. I can help you to slow down in these moments to help you express yourself in a way that is congruent, and most importantly, in a way that lets you be heard by your partner, family, co-workers, and yourself."

"It takes a lot of courage to admit your needs and to allow yourself to be truly known. Our day-to-day realities have taught us to protect such vulnerability, yet this same vulnerability is what's needed to begin the process of healing. This is the step to take toward living in freedom. I am devoted to helping you find relief from anger, sadness, shame, or whatever it is that leaves you feeling stuck - a relief that comes from being in relationship with someone who accepts all of you, even the parts of you that feel broken, extreme, or judged. And ultimately, we'll discover that this freeing acceptance is already within you. "

"Asking for help is a sign of strength, not weakness. When we are sick, we ask a doctor for help. When we need a haircut, we ask a stylist or barber for help. So, when we have interpersonal or relational problems that feel too big to handle, it’s time to talk to a therapist for help. Few people learn healthy coping strategies for managing the challenges of Life. This includes managing ourselves within the world around us. It specifically includes managing our thoughts, our feelings, and our actions. Life is filled with challenges that cause pain and suffering. How we manage these situations determines how “in control” we feel."

"We all have the capacity to grow, learn, and make positive changes no matter what life throws our way. Psychotherapy is a way of understanding personal conflicts and creating meaning through self-discovery. It is one of the first steps towards achieving change. My style of treatment aims at exploring and understanding ways of thinking, behaving and relating to others that are outside of the one's personal awareness. This lack of awareness can often result in repetitive patterns of behavior that leads to dissatisfaction and emotional anguish in a person's life."
