Therapy isn't education, and it's not advice-giving. Because people are different, elements of therapy require different healing for different people. It's the ability to speak your mind safely to someone who listens, listens intelligently, and cares is important. I believe a successful counseling experience depends on the therapist ability to understand and respect the unique concerns, background, and context of each patient. I am committed to achieving such an understanding in every counseling relationship.

As a Cognitive Behavioral therapist and a photographer, I use my own curiosity to cultivate self-curiosity in others. I think what keeps us stuck or disconnected, depressed or anxious, or just feeling "off" are our blindspots and the stories we have about ourselves, others, and the world. Our stories influence how we feel and how we behave. Psychotherapy (and photography) can challenge those stories, providing us with new perspectives where emotional and behavioral change can then happen.

Psychotherapy can be many things: from understanding and gaining control of a major emotional or substance abuse problem, to improving a partner or family relationship, to knowing yourself better. Our “mental health” like our physical health can benefit greatly from a skilled helper to address a sudden major problem or provide long-term support to get stronger and achieve our potential. Good individual, couple/family or group therapy can address the kind of work you need for where you are in life, whether you are facing a major crisis or looking for the insight and support you need to be who you can truly be.
