"Psychotherapy is a journey toward healing that we take together. I believe you have all the resources you need within you. Psychotherapy is designed to awaken and mobilize them. My clients frequently report that in addition to resolving the problems that brought them into therapy - a depression has lifted, a work conflict or relationship difficulty worked through - what has changed is the way they feel about themselves. They feel stronger, more connected to themselves at a core level and capable of achieving their vision of what they want their lives to be."

"Are you thinking about trying counseling? I want to commend you for your strength and bravery. I think it takes a lot of guts to seek help from a counselor. More importantly, you are already on the path to healing and change. I'd like to partner with you to help you on your journey to wholeness. I'm not the type of therapist who will tell you what to do because I believe that deep down you already know. However, I will affirm your strengths and encourage you because affirmations empower people to replace their negative thoughts, emotions, and behavior for healthier alternatives."

"As a Jungian analyst I see children and adults for depth-oriented psychotherapy. I use a relational model focussing on feelings that come up between myself and my client as we work on the outer and inner concerns. Images from dreams, sandplay and art are integrated into the analytic work to explore deeper meanings and to elucidate concerns. I use play therapy & sandplay as appropriate for children and offer other age appropriate materials. I believe in a growth rather than a pathology oriented process, viewing problems-in-living as an opportunity to further self-development, growth, and awareness."

"Searching for a therapist can be a daunting process. Especially if you’re not inclined to ask others for help in the first place. Maybe you’re used to muscling through things on your own. Maybe you think you should be stronger, or be able to solve your own problems. As you start to consider therapy, how do you know who you’re going to click with? How do you trust that it’s even worth the effort? What will it be like to talk, and have someone truly listen?"

"My approach to psychotherapy stems from a passionate commitment to the process of self-discovery. It entails working to create a space with each person in which feelings and worries can be named and articulated; deeply held troubles--traumatic histories and conflicts--can come to light, be examined and explored; and hope along with ideas for change can be generated. Through attuned listening, fragmented bits can be woven into lines of thought which over time become the shape of a personal and useful story. Treatment combines developing insights into unconsciously held beliefs and finding strategies for coping with life stresses."
