"All human beings are capable of meaningful and lasting transformation. All of us, regardless of whether we are 6 or 60, can use our minds to change our brains to change our minds to... well, you get the picture. This is thanks to a phenomenon called "neuroplasticity." Neuroplasticity says that neurons that fire together wire together. Through the intentional development of new skills for choosing healthier thoughts and responses to life's challenges, we can actually change the structure of our brains. This gradual transformation of our neurology allows us to restructure our lives to eliminate needless suffering."

"A person comes to therapy when their present ways of being in relationship, or in the world, no longer seem to hold the meaning they once did. My aim is to support you in creating a new foundation of hope, purpose, and meaning in your life. I help people seek wholeness through the integration of mind, body, and soul, thus expanding their current level of understanding, and in so doing, creating the capacity to live more meaningfully. "

"It takes a village...Navigating through the transitions and challenges in our lives is meant to be a collaboration with family, friends, elders, wise women and men. However, in the times of instant change and mobility, some may find themselves lost and alone, far from those they confide in and look up to. Sometimes they isolate for fear of vulnerability and the pressure to appear "to have it together". When this self-judgement and drive to be “perfect” eventally takes its toll, one can be left feeling bereft of deep connection to self and others. Finding a therapist you can trust and confide in, can help you find your way."

They are often highly sensitive and imaginative, helpers and healers, with literary, artistic, or philosophical leanings. They are all seeking to heal inner conflicts and relationship problems rooted in early attachment wounds or traumatic experiences. Most importantly, my clients have come to recognize it's time to do their inner work in order to create the outer life they want, and they continue to grow and deepen into their innate wisdom long after therapy has ended."

"Psychotherapy provides an opportunity to reflect on the deeper dimensions of your experience, and to recognize your own unique callings in life. The goal in existential therapy is to experience greater freedom in making the choices that empower you to be the kind of person you most want to be. Psychological freedom is twofold: freedom from the unwarranted fears, anxieties and assorted forms of emotional distress that constrict our life engagements, and at the same time, a freedom to engage in the vital relationships, creative activities, and genuine responsibilities that characterize a meaningful and fulfilling life."
