"There are times in our life when we begin to feel sadness, anxiety, loss of meaning, or loss of joy. We feel this as an individual and in our relationships. Doctors are quick to hand out anti-depressants, but often this is not depression. Instead, I believe these feelings emerge as we struggle with the many challenges and changes we face in life, especially as we age. Life can be very difficult, the loss of friends and loved ones, transitions, illness, divorce, career changes, and more can lead to a loss of meaning or purpose. And this, in turn, can bring on sadness, anxiety, and a sense that we're disconnected from our lives."

"Many individuals and couples approach me for therapy feeling they've hit a road block in their lives and are confused and frustrated in their attempts to grow beyond it. They are often uncertain - both about their capacity to change and about whether therapy can help. Couples may be hopeful or discouraged about transforming their repeated patterns of conflict or distance, but know that significant changes are needed if their relationship is to regain a sense of joy and strength. The art of therapy involves reaching beyond solving a particular problem and exploring the opportunites for growth embedded within it."

"Most of us lug around a suitcase full of our thoughts, feelings, family history and past experiences and have no idea what's in there. Our current responses to and experience of life come from the contents of that suitcase. Together in therapy we gently unpack it. We will see what is working for you, what needs more support and what has served it's purpose but no longer works. I work collaboratively and am curious about all the things that make you who you are. I am particularly interested in working with people who feel misunderstood or unimportant."
