"I am a practical clinician who draws from an array of psychological approaches to assist my clients in achieving their goals. In addition to being practical, my therapeutic approach is aimed at understanding and integrating the dissonant thoughts and feelings at the core of most problems. I employ a focused and systematic method to identify the barriers to an individual's development and bring about change through an understanding and relinquishing of old models of coping. I am also able to utilize psychological measures of personality and aptitude to assist my clients in making decisions about their treatment and goals."

"You want to live your adult life as an adult. Many of us struggle within the familiar loops that were set up with our best intentions, except often the parts of us in play formed in our childhood or adolescence. Do you want the adolescent you to be at the helm of your life or the adult you? With over 18 years in practice, I have come to realize that the journey one embarks on when entering therapy is an exceedingly personal and honorable one. As such, I work very hard to be fully engaged in each and every session to help you realign with the best in you as you navigate your life."

"I have a passion for this work and honor and appreciate my clients. Starting from wherever you are “stuck,” we’ll work on developing your ability to deal with problems in such a way that they become opportunities for personal growth. Our greatest difficulties can be life’s greatest gifts in disguise if we can learn how to translate their messages. It may be hard to imagine that your eating disorder or anxiety attacks (for example) can take you somewhere positive, but every problem we encounter has the potential to move us to a place of greater self-understanding,"

"There is a wholeness and knowing that exists within you. Therapy is the incredibly special process of cracking that open. It is a space where you can show up and be authentically you, which is hard for most of us to do. Many of us have been deeply hurt, traumatized, or disappointed by our families and close relationships. In turn, we are wounded, and react from that space. But often through societal pressures, we walk around smiling and pretending to be happy, when internally we are battling depression, numbness, or anxiety."
