"We often experience the most conflict with those to whom we are closest. This can cause strain and disconnect in our most valued relationships. While this can cause strain at any time, it can be especially prominent during pregnancy and the first few years after children are born. Parenting can be incredibly rewarding…. and one of the most challenging times in our lives. It can also be an opportunity for change and growth. Individual, couples, and family therapy can help you reconnect with others, deepen and strengthen your ability to support and nurture your relationships, and your children."

"I specialize in relationships, assisting individuals and couples to deepen connection and heal the past. Therapy can be a transformational process of self-discovery facilitated by deeper levels of awareness and change. I believe we have an inherent ability to heal ourselves. I offer the experience of mindful observation, acceptance and compassion, so you may offer the same unconditional positive regard toward yourself and others. Sitting in close and conscious relationship with a skilled therapist can be a profound vehicle for this process. I use an integrative approach recognizing the interconnectedness of body, mind, and spirit. "

"Our struggles do not define us, but they can refine us. Painful life experiences may be made more bearable when we can find meaning and purpose. Often what people want during those difficult times is to feel better, and to have a sense of belonging. We are also fundamentally more equipped to endure and overcome life’s challenges than we may believe, and it is rewarding to see people transform and become better. "

"One thing I did not learn growing up was how to understand what was really going on for me. I spent years not knowing how to listen to my own feelings or what to do once I found them. And I am still learning. A little more all the time. I have spent the past decade studying how to become aware of the subtle signals in a situation and how to follow them in a way that shows who we really are and what we really want. The learning and unlearning this takes has become my devotion. Being with others and doing this together had become something I love. "
