"The most important part of therapy is picking the right therapist for you, feeling comfortable with the person you are talking to, and from there building trust and a connection with your therapist. I have built some very strong connections with my clients and help them work though difficult and traumatic experiences they have had that sometimes go way back to their early childhood. Traumatic experiences affect us in many ways and sometimes we don't understand that is the root to our life difficulties. I look forward to talking to you! I am currently not taking calls or emails until January 2019. Sorry for the inconvenience. "

"Sometimes, when faced with many of life's challenges, we can find it difficult to reach out. Often fear or shame get in the way of asking for help. But there is hope. Working with a therapist, you can begin to feel validated and discover that you are not alone. Do you have a fear of abandonment or fear of intimacy? One or the other can mean you're either a Love Addict or Love Avoidant. I can teach you how to love yourself instead of looking for it in someone else, and bring down your walls and be relational."

"Many of my clients identify as highly sensitive, creative, open, and curious with philosophical and spiritual leanings. They often are helpers and healers who find that they have given so much of themselves to others that they have lost themselves somewhere along the way. As a result, they struggle to set boundaries, ask for what they want and need, and feel disempowered, depressed, and anxious. My clients long to live creative, passionate, purpose-driven lives, but know they need to attend to themselves and to do their own inner work in order to create the life that they truly desire."
