"I wholeheartedly believe in the resilience of the human spirit and that each of us are imbued with the desire to achieve, to connect and have peace. Change is usually associated with stress and we are not fond of it; we find comfort in our routine even when that routine is allowing us to feel overwhelmed, underappreciated and at its worst, neglected or abused. Change is what inspires and produces growth. Without growth, we whither and shrink away becoming someone whom we barely recognize. We are life forces and energy that need growth in order to realize our fullest potential"

"Many times people find themselves at a place in life where they find it difficult to move towards their goals in life. Goals vary from person to person; but they are important to who we are. A person may notice the same mountain is circled with little to no progress. This can be very frustrating. Obstacles might include past "hang-ups", lack of self trust, or feeling unmotivated or overwhelmed with life's circumstances. There may be times the individual wonders if things will always be a certain way, or they may wonder if there is something they are missing. They desire to move past the obstacles and achieve their goal. "

"When we feel overwhelmed in our struggle with problems, we can feel trapped, angry, and hopeless. The problem feels bigger than us. When this happens, we feel stuck. Getting unstuck requires making changes. But what changes and how? Just as problems are of an individual nature, so are the necessary changes. I focus on joining with clients to help them identify the changes that will work for them. I try to help them listen more carefully to themselves in ways that reveal the wisdom of a life that is bigger than the problem. Therapy with me is a collaborative experience."
