"I have been helping my clients find solutions to problems of addiction, depression and difficult relationships for more than twenty-five years. I can help you feel better and make the changes you want to make. I recognize and respect what is unique about you and I don't practice "one size fits all" psychotherapy. I understand emotional pain and how a good therapeutic relationship can heal the hurt. Having better relationships, overcoming depression, or getting off the merry-go-round of addiction is possible with help, commitment and hard work."

"My style of working is warm, thoughtful and direct. I am committed to helping people discover and enhance their emotional capacity in order to create more satisfying lives. Through the transformative experience of being deeply understood by another in an authentic, safe and honest relationship, people can develop increased compassion (for self and other), experience a more stable sense of self-esteem, discover new ways of relating, experience increased tolerance for difficult emotions, and transform destructive patterns into more satisfying expressions of self."

"I see people as having rich, complex human emotions that are not well described with overly simple and often stigmatizing diagnostic labels like depression or generalized anxiety. Each person is entirely unique, with their own history, strengths, and challenges. In therapy, I will work with you to better understand yourself. When we can understand why you might be feeling or thinking or acting in a way that is not best for you, we can work together to change it in a way that is tailored to your needs and your circumstances."

"Just as the words of a poem can open our eyes, minds and hearts in ways language otherwise might not be able to, I believe that psychotherapy is a creative process that utilizes language to access psychic terrain that's often inaccessible in our everyday lives. Accessing and exploring this internal terrain in therapy can be both enlightening and transformative."

"We live in a culture that tells us the type of person we need to be. Sometimes these messages start at home as children, but often continue as we grow up. It can be hard to clear away what we've been told and internalized from our own true nature and who we are destined to become. Parts of us have been left behind; authentic selves concealed but not forgotten. I help people to find their voice and claim it as their own. Some for the first time and others in a renewed manner, after they have lost their way."
