"Are you struggling to recover from the lingering effects of a toxic relationship? Maybe someone in your family was in some way distant or self-involved, ranging from emotional immaturity and unavailability to drinking too much alcohol to self-absorbed narcissistic or borderline personality disorder. Or maybe you find yourself in a long-term relationship or repeatedly in relationships with partners who fit this description. If you find yourself wondering what is deeply wrong with you, trying over and over again to adjust yourself so that someone else in your life will be happy, doing emotional work for others that does not belong to you, and striving to be a perfect and selfless you that leaves your own needs unattended, I’d love to be of help."

"I believe that in order to be healthy and happy, the individual must be focused on growth and change. If you are not healthy or happy, change is necessary. However, several factors complicate this simple truth. We give too much or allow our power to be stolen rather than exchanged; Fear, anger, and sadness can override logic and wisdom. How we act and think affect our experience of reality. I work clients to help increase their sense of self-direction, align their behaviors with their goals and replace the negative with a more positive perspective. "

"Many individuals find at some point they are unable to cope with the pressures of daily life. Others may find themselves feeling stuck in unhealthy patterns, unable to reach their full potential or create meaningful relationships. Suddenly, ways to cope that were once helpful have become harmful and ineffective. Old wounds that we thought were healed, have come back to haunt us, leaving us unable to move forward. As a therapist, my goal is to help individuals uncover and change these unhealthy patterns in order to live a meaningful and fulfilling life in recovery."

""The best way to predict the future is to create it." That statement is at the heart of therapy. So often we are defined by what has happened to us and we get stuck living in a space filled with regret, heartache and frustration. You don't have to live in that space and the act of searching for a therapist is a wonderfully bold and courageous start toward creating your future. My role as your therapist will be to help unlock your innate ability to heal, forgive, grow and prosper in the life you wish to create."

"My approach to psychological healing is integrative, mixing psychodynamic, mind/body, and transpersonal approaches to psychotherapy. My philosophy of therapy stresses respect for the client and an acknowledgment of the importance of starting "where the client is." I practice psychotherapy as a gentle process in which the client develops increasing intimacy with him/herself. Therapy often involves the exploration of family of origin issues and the impact of old conditioning on current functioning. I also emphasize the importance of developing existing personal strengths and resources. I sometimes use a test called the Enneagram to clarify client strengths and issues. I have expertise in mindfulness."
