"After many decades of counseling individuals and families,I have come to appreciate the power of the healing principle in all of us. Every one has the capacity to grow, heal, and stabilize. A seasoned, skillful therapist guides and empowers the patient's own innate strength and healing capacities. Counseling can be helpful to people, whether they are facing the very ordinary but demanding problems of adult life or the extraordinary difficulties of dealing with catastrophic loss, grief, illness, and trauma. A technique known as EMDR is one approach that I have used successfully with clients in both categories."

"Finding a place we can trust to tell our stories is essential to finding a path to healing, recovery, and transformation. Therefore, it is essential to find someone that can help you reach your potential to transform your life. We all are born with an innate capacity to develop happy and healthy lives. However, sometimes life experiences such as hurts and traumas can interfere with our development and we may become unhappy or unsatisfied with our lives and adopt self-defeating thinking and behavioral patterns."

"Sexuality and relationships are complex, and sex therapy is not just about sex. Great sex is more about your relationship with yourself and others than it is about technique. In sex therapy, we identify and work through the emotional issues that contribute to sexual problems by using cognitive therapy to change problematic thoughts and attitudes and incorporate behavioral techniques to change physical symptoms and behavior. I use a sexual health model and work with individuals and couples of any sexual orientation & lifestyle. Interventions include psychoeducation about sex, mindfulness exercises, and repairing relationship issues."
