"I will interrupt you a lot. That's what a meditation practice does, it interrupts our stories about ourselves and the world around us. You might get frustrated, because it is difficult to be interrupted, even harder to interrupt ourselves, but you will learn to do that. You will get better at noticing that you are on a path headed toward an undesired outcome and be able to interrupt that happening."

"Starting therapy can often feel intimidating. People seek professional mental health care for a variety of reasons. Unable to play, or imagine something different? Sometimes we just feel stuck in our current patterns. There are times when we feel afraid, confused, sad, and overwhelmed. Overwhelming feelings of distress may require another person to help you explore and understand their pull, so they no longer control your life. Therapy is a relationship where you can feel safe and free to be who you are with another person to explore what you want."

"Often clients come into therapy with me when they are stuck in life, in a crisis, or in transition in a relationship or job or when emotions are just becoming too much to cope with. They want a change but are not always sure how to go about it. Taking the step to begin therapy is not easy for most people, but starting therapy often leads to a real opportunity to change, in ways that are not always expected. My style is warm, inviting and engaging, and I seek to connect to each person where they are at in life."

If you're willing to try personal trainers, babysitters, house cleaners, and other services to better your life, doesn't your emotional happiness or the happiness of your family deserve the same focus?

"We are all born whole, in lovingkind perfection. But life produces obstacles that sidetrack our becoming ourselves. Obstacles take any forms: trauma in the body, inauthentic identities, existential fears, beliefs indoctrinated but in conflict with one's essential values, or anxiety that something is wrong with oneself. The result can be alienation, grief, substance use issues, depression, anxiety, difficulty connecting, or incapacity to speak or create from the heart. Reconnecting with ones body, the natural world, and with an unconditional community are the foundations re-emerging into the Self you've always been. "

I view the individual as separate from their situation and condition - such as disabilities, medical/chronic conditions, substance use, anger, depression, anxiety, or involvement in the criminal justice system - and are capable of change.
