Often we are scared to face our upsetting thoughts and feelings alone. I feel honored to be able to accompany people on this journey as a companion and experienced guide. In this role I will help you to process unresolved feelings, utilize your strengths and change patterns that are no longer working for you so that you can better meet life's challenges and joys."

"I don't know how I can help you. That's right, I said I DON'T know how I can help you. No experienced therapist knows how to help someone before that person shows up in the therapist's office and reveals who they are. Each person comes in with a different set of life-experiences, different struggles and hopes, and different ways of coping with life. This doesn't mean that I won't be able to help you. I have 40+ years experience helping people gain strength, focus, and the confidence to overcome obstacles that impede success."

"Therapy can lead to better relationships and more ease in our lives. I work with people to get in touch with the most authentic and real parts of themselves. Sometimes these parts get buried because of how we've felt hurt or misunderstood in life. Together we will get to know these hurt parts and how they show up, whether it is through fears and worries, the critical voice you hear inside, or a feeling of being stuck, lost, alone or helpless."

"Are you feeling overwhelmed and under-resourced? Are you struggling to balance your own needs with those of your baby? Does it seem like everyone knows something about motherhood that you don't? Becoming a mother is monumental, life-changing and sometimes disappointing. Nearly 1 in 5 mothers experience Anxiety and Depression after the birth/adoption of a baby. It is the most common complication post birth. You don't have to be alone with your experience. I will be with you and help you find your feet again."

"Are you struggling with relationships? Are you having the same fight with your partner over and over? Have you lost the emotional connection you used to have? Do you find yourself trapped in similar relationship dynamics in most of your relationships and feel helpless to change those negative patterns? Intimate relationships touch our deepest relational wounds. That's why we can be overwhelmed with the pain they bring and often, at points, feel like giving up. When attended to with gentleness and compassion these wounds can heal and we can experience a new level of connection and love - one which we couldn't have imagined. "

"I look forward to meeting with individuals, couples, and families who are interested in personal growth and change. During the different stages of our life, our relationships, and the family life cycle, we can get stuck in certain places. This is often due to how we live out familiar patterns of thinking, feeling, behaving or relating with others. I find fulfillment in helping people move through these stuck points by bringing about clarity on core issues and exploring possible alternatives for change. I'm best suited to treat relationship problems, depression, father wounds, men with sexual addiction, and grief/loss issues."

When couples first contact me, they have often been struggling with strained, stuck and reactive relationship patterns for a long time. They have hurt each other by attempting various ineffective solutions such as fighting-to-win, resentful compliance, disengagement, squeezing out their sexual desire, infidelities, freezing in hopelessness. This is all in an attempt to manage the anxiety and discomfort often inherent in long-term relationship challenges. They are discouraged and worried that they will be unable to move beyond their entrenched barriers."
