This is why I am so passionate about incorporating all of the various relationships, experiences, and cultural dimensions that make you who you are, into our work together. My job is to learn about each individual, partner, or family member, to understand their challenges and help them find strength and motivation towards change. Whether I am working with couples, families, or individuals, it is important for our work to consider the multiple larger systems that impact your life. Just as the networks we are a part of inevitably affect us, we too send ripples out to others. "

"I believe my number one job as a therapist is to RESPECT YOUR AUTONOMY and your right to make your own decisions without being pressured or told what to do by a professional! I believe that you have within you the ability to think through your issues and concerns and to gain your own insights into the problems you want to solve. My number two job as a therapist is to REALLY LISTEN! Then I can provide the understanding, support and guidance needed to help you discover your own insights, make your own choices and resolve problems to your own satisfaction."

I work with people who are struggling in a variety of ways and are ready to dig in and do some difficult and deeply powerful work that will lead to greater choice and freedom. I view my opportunity to join individuals in their journey toward self-understanding as a great privilege."

"Many young adults and working professionals experience life transitions, career stressors, and relationship challenges during this season of life that contribute to chronic feelings of sadness, isolation, and worry. Or perhaps past hurts resurface and we find ourselves having a tough time getting over them. Sometimes in these instances, we hesitate to involve the ones closest to us and, though it can be scary to confide in a therapist, we recognize that we could truly benefit from an objective perspective."
