Things in our lives may not be going the way we want or we may find ourselves coming up against repeated stumbling blocks in certain areas of our lives. I believe that therapy can help us reconnect to parts of ourselves that we have forgotten about or lost track of.

"Underneath depression, anxiety, marital conflict, eating disorders, substance abuse, and other troubles there lies a single, painful, relentless problem: self judgement. Feelings are transient, and there are not good ones or bad ones, but we are not all raised to understand that. Encouraged by our culture to appear strong and happy, we feel pressured to hide our true feelings from each other. But when we take the time and care to pay attention to our authentic experience, it is possible to grow an enormous love for ourselves and great tenderness towards others, and even deep inner peace and great humor."

"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."
