"Do you find that when you feel overwhelmed, by an emotion, a situation, a relationship, or anything else, you tend to focus on what you cannot control? I am incredibly passionate about helping people discover the things in life they can control. There is power in this discovery process and I strive to help people harness that power. I have seen how this type of empowerment leads to personal growth, teaching me to value every single client as a unique, complex individual. I embrace that fact that everyone has a different personality and a distinct history of life experiences."

"You may be feeling sad, anxious, overwhelmed, or confused. You may be experiencing a difficult life transition or feel that something is missing in your life. It is important to find a therapist with whom you have a good fit, a feeling that your therapist "gets" you in order to develop the trust necessary in a therapeutic relationship. I have over 35 years of experience helping people in a safe, non-judgmental environment. It is through feeling understood that we come to understand ourselves better."

"Resolving personal issues and the work of self-discovery can be a difficult but rewarding journey. Undertaking this challenge in a thoughtful way, with someone who acts as support and guide, helps illuminate the process. Relationship issues, romantic, familial or social, can be filled with confusion, anger, jealousy and the loss of self-worth. They can also be the seeds for better understanding who you are in the moment and who you really want to be."
