"I view therapy as a process that can facilitate healing and change, as well as understanding and fulfillment. Whether stuck in a conflicted relationship, feeling lost, struggling with depression or anxiety, adjusting to a transition or life change, feeling unable to break unhealthy patterns or resolve past issues and pain, it can be difficult to know where to start. Together, we can explore the issues you face and identify the direction you want your life to take and the steps needed to get you there. Once established, our relationship can provide the foundation and safety for this process."

"In each of us there is a wise and compassionate Self. It is already there, and does not have to be created or developed. Too often, however, our access to this Self is obscured by protective and sometimes conflicting thoughts and emotions. These protections were put in place for a reason, but can become outdated and even dysfunctional as we mature. In our therapy together we will uncover what is being protected, release old patterns and emotions, and create space for this wise Self to take a larger role in your life."

"People seek therapy when they are unhappy with how they are feeling or functioning. Sometimes you can identify unfortunate things you've experienced that are connected to your suffering. Other times, the reasons for suffering are more elusive, but the associated symptoms (depression, anxiety, unfulfilling relationships, for example) are nevertheless extremely distressing. In both cases, talking to understand the deeper reasons for suffering can help. The self-awareness you discover this way is the most powerful tool to create a more fulfilling life."
