"The most significant predictor of a successful therapy experience is the quality of the relationship between therapist and client. Building a safe, nurturing relationship is where I excel. My style is warm and highly interactive, best suited for clients who prefer a therapist who feels very human, less like the old "medical model." I assist clients to explore their thought patterns and corresponding emotional reactions, and to identify unconscious assumptions they hold about themselves, which inform their behavioral patterns. I also provide practical tools for regulating anxiety, managing depression, and processing grief & loss."

"Are you here because you're having a "dark night of the soul" and feeling hopeless? Or do you want to change a relationship pattern that keeps repeating no matter how much you try? Perhaps you want to transform your low self-esteem and FINALLY believe in yourself...You know that something has to change, but what and how? You have most likely thought yourself in circles around the problem, but you cannot think your way out of this one. Does all that thinking send you spiraling out and anxious, your inner-critic having a field day?"

"No issue is too small or unworthy of consideration and care. If you are struggling with anxiety or find yourself having self defeating thoughts and feelings that are outside of your control, relief is possible. Together, we can create a place of solace from critical thoughts and harsh feelings while getting to know their origins. Many of the people I work with find that new aspects of self are revealed when this self-disparaging vail is lifted."

"The goal of therapy is for you be happy in your love and work. At the heart of it, therapy is about increasing your capacity to alleviate your suffering; feel more connected with yourself and others; expand and enrich yourself; recognize what you want; and recognize the internal and external forces that keep you from getting what you want. These are powerful antidotes to anxiety and depression."

"I help people to rapidly get to the core issues which keep them stuck in their lives, be it unhappy in their relationships, chronically depressed, angry, anxious, or just suffering. What almost always what creates suffering is the avoidance of painful feelings, either feelings from the past or recent events. When we avoid these painful feelings, we develop symptoms and suffer. The treatment approaches I use are evidence-based, meaning they've been researched, tested, and proven to work. And they lead to accelerated and long-lasting change, normally a fraction of the time it takes with other types of therapy. "

Self-esteem lives on a spectrum: Not enough self-regard (or low self esteem) can lead people to become depressed, or to tolerate abusive situations and relationships. Too much self-love (or high self-esteem), results in an off-putting sense of entitlement and an inability to learn from failure. And it's occasionally a sign of clinical narcissism. Quite the opposite of being shy or shyness, yet still on the same spectrum.
