"Pain is an unavoidable and a necessary part of life. But suffering -- especially prolonged, "punishing" suffering -- is not. So many people seeking therapy suffer from anxiety, depression, difficulties in relationships, and self-sabotaging behaviors. We use defenses to avoid our emotions. Ironically emotions aren't the SOURCE of pain but in fact are there to HELP us HEAL from the painful losses, hurts and challenges of life. You don't come to therapy to talk about your week. You come for relief from your suffering, for a chance to work through and find meaning in your pain and, just as with a broken bone, heal stronger and better! "

I do this with individuals or parents so together so we can determine what is best for him or her or their child at the current time.

"One thing is certain in life: things always change. All of us encounter difficult changes, narrow passages that we must navigate: unemployment, relocation, breakups, divorce, illness, bereavement. We also experience good, positive changes. Ironically, these too can be quite stressful. Falling in love, getting married, childbirth, getting a promotion at work, any major accomplishment can precipitate uneasiness and worry. It can be tremendously helpful to have the attention, support and perspective of a thoughtful therapist. Together, we collaborate to get you through these challenges while, at the same time, being curious about the deeper meanings underneath the surface."
