"At one time or another, we might feel overwhelmed, stuck, unsatisfied with our lives and experience a prolonged sense of hopelessness, helplessness, sadness, and anxiousness which start to prevent us from functioning our daily tasks. We might experience some events in our personal, married or work lives that we may not know how to make sense of, with the resources that we have. We might also start to question the way we cope with our problems, for example, by drinking too much alcohol, abusing prescription medication, using illegal drugs or being aggressive, because they start to harm us or others around us.

"Most people who seek counseling do so because something in their life is just not quite right. Perhaps you have already identified what is off in your life - depression, anxiety, a negative relationship. Or perhaps you just know something is off. I work with each of my clients to get to the core of their struggles. Then I help my clients experiment with new solutions, new perspectives, and new ways of being. I believe therapy is a journey of exploration, understanding, and new choices and I enjoy helping my clients connect to the core strength they never knew they had."

"I believe therapy is a way to develop a secure connection that can be rare in everyday life. Developing this connection allows one a space to express authentically what may have been hidden or not heard. Within the safety of this space, real change can begin to occur. So often we believe that it is by applying willpower to an issue that we can instigate change, and are left feeling defeated in the end. In therapy, we get the chance to take these moments of defeat and transform them. We can reorganize, reorient, gain hope, and live more satisfying lives."

"Anxiety can steal your life. You spend too much time in your head. You worry, you have a thousand thoughts with no direction, you're distracted, irritable, and on edge. You relive things that have gone wrong, awkward moments, fears. You can't stop. You know this is taking over your life but you don't know what to do about it. It affects everything: work, relationships, your moods. You're down, depressed, and your sleep is affected. You feel like things are never going to change, like you're always going to feel this way."
