"Sometimes it is hard to ask for help. You have everyone else convinced that you have got it all together. However, there's parts of yourself you do not recognize, don't understand or simply feel you can not change. Sometimes these thoughts and feelings can lead us to behave in ways that are not healthy."

"Did you know only 10% to 20% of marriages get better with traditional marriage counseling? Did you know that other studies show a 98% success rate? Do you know what you can do to be in the 98% group? Do you know why men often have to be dragged in by their ear, and what you can do about it? Did you know that relationships can improve even if only one person is doing the work, and that quite often it is better to work separately? Did you know that poor communication is a symptom, not the cause of marital stress?"

Therapy is a collaborative process: it happens in a space/time that is removed from the regular occurrences of life. As such, it is an opportunity to play around with ideas, thoughts and feelings in a safe setting.I take our work together very seriously, but do my best not to take myself too seriously.

" I strongly believe in the process of therapy because I have seen it unfold before me. It is a sometimes slow, painful, process that takes time. When the pain is released, it becomes a relief. Yes it is scary to look inside and face the not so nice parts of us and our experiences that we have endured. However, just because we don't look does not mean it is not there. If we recognize we need help, it is a courageous move to make that first initial contact with a professional. I have a great capacity for empathy, and believe I am a compassionate, intuitive person these are key components to good therapy."
