"Therapy is a place for inquiry and finding meaning. Whether you are hoping to better understand your relationship patterns, process past and/or ongoing trauma, explore shifts in your identity, make a difficult decision or choose your next step(s), I bring a curious and warm presence to your exploration. The intersection of your various identities are fundamental to your connections to self and others, thus, I consider power and privilege and the social location(s) of each individual as I work to understand your path towards healing.

"Rejection Hurts–in both personal and workplace relationships. Let’s work together to overcome its impact on you. •Does miscommunication lead to misunderstandings, hurt feelings and taking things personally? •Does feeling rejected turn into self-blaming and self-rejection in a flash? Would you like to manage this? •Are you ‘filling in the blanks’ with your own assumptions? •Is resentment growing to where there’s barely room for connection or intimacy? •Would you benefit from practicing respectfully direct communication and checking-out skills? •And if you are ADHD, then most likely you know the power of rejection sensitivity."

"Being stuck is scary, painful and frustrating. You get locked into worrying. You feel pressure to do things perfectly. It's hard to make decisions. Anxiety makes it hard to sleep. Addictions might arise: food, sex, substance or over working. You might think "something is horribly wrong and I must fix it NOW!" It's really tricky to be a human being sometimes. I have worked with clients for 25 years and have learned from my clients that getting unstuck is paradoxical: it involves both accepting where you are and being willing to change and grow. "
