"¶..You'll tap your strengths and enjoy them. We'll marvel at how the brain creates one adaptive "I" after another (side by side now, taking turns in one healthy person). We'll respect how they once protected you, and relax the outdated ones that tie you up. ¶..We can use the ways you're ready for change, so it feels natural.

"Therapy is an opportunity for getting support when we recognize that the old ways of coping with challenging life situations are no longer working. You may feel that seeking professional help is the last resort. In fact, it is the most important step. In my practice, I provide a warm and collaborative environment to support clients in making positive changes to live healthier, happier, and more productive lives. I see adults, adolescents, and couples with a wide variety of issues and concerns including depressive symptoms, mood instability, social anxiety, PTSD, traumatic experiences, relationship difficulties, sexual issues, and life transitions."

"I view therapy as a collaborative process where we work together to understand the challenges you are facing. My initial goal is to provide empathy and relief, while working in the longer term to help you feel more open and able to access parts of your experience that may be hidden. This can be scary and vitalizing, and I view work with each client as a unique journey where the path to healing unfolds over time. For me, the ultimate goal of therapy is to help you both accept and challenge yourself, and thereby become more fully who you are."

"Life guarantees all of us ups and downs- but in our highly individualistic culture, it is common to believe that one ought to be able to handle their own difficulties. In reality, stressful life events,transitions and challenges can become much more manageable with consistent support. Through active listening and reflection,I assist clients in accessing their own intuition about what makes their life feel satisfying. Therapy involves a growing self awareness that often uncovers outdated beliefs and patterns. I truly enjoy guiding clients through this discovery process.This often involves a look at how culture and upbringing influence behavior."

"I work with individuals toward connecting to themselves, and couples and family members connecting to one another. When there's space, time, curiosity and full acceptance from a safe other, what needs to be seen and heard from the depths arises and then guides towards healing, wholeness and connection. The injuries of current and past show up to speak truth and release - interpersonal, familial, intergenerational, and from impacts of oppression, discrimination, alienation, abuse, and neglect. When injuries heal, freedom and connection arise, depression and anxiety fall away. This process happens with deep listening and care."

"Sometimes we experience difficulties that we can't seem to solve on our own. It may be a life transition that creates unexpected challenges, such as graduating, changing jobs, becoming a parent, or losing a loved one. It may be a relationship problem or a difficult situation at work. Or it may be more of an internal struggle, in which we find ourselves feeling anxious, lonely, or stuck. Sometimes we just have a vague sense that something isn't right, that we're not as happy or as fulfilled as we could be."
