"There is a saying, "In youth, we run into difficulties. In old age, difficulties run into us." Sometimes life can be really hard. Even the strongest individual may need support and guidance in dealing with unexpected circumstances, or in managing conflict and personal challenges. I believe that through safe, reassuring, and compassionate therapy, clients can work through any struggle, connect to their best authentic selves, and achieve long-term growth and personal transformation."

"We live in a world of countless binaries, expectations, and assumptions about our lives, and escaping them in order to come into our own can be an incredibly difficult process. Perhaps you are here because you are struggling with obstacles in your life, or feel lost and unsure of what's next for you. Perhaps you are struggling with your identity or your personal relationships. Whatever the reason, you have already begun the process of seeking help and that means a great deal."

" Seeking therapy is a brave step. Whether you are presently in crisis or simply feeling a bit stuck in life, I honor the effort & courage that it took you to get here. It suggests that—regardless of how you might feel in this moment—some small (or large) part of you believes in the possibility of a more peaceful, fulfilling life. As a therapist, I am here to not only affirm and amplify that belief, but more importantly, to help you discover and define its reality for yourself."

"Sometimes the parts of us that are open, curious and authentic can feel stifled or closed off by life stressors and pain. As a result, we develop thoughts, behaviors and emotional patterns that cause us to resist or avoid our true self and prevent us from moving through the world with harmony and ease. By doing so, we end up experiencing feelings of loneliness, sadness, anxiety and stress, ultimately limiting us in our lives, careers and relationships. Therapy seeks to uncover our richer stories and truths, thereby allowing us to act from a place of trust and intuition, which ultimately enhances the meaningfulness of our lives."
