"There is a lot of pressure in today’s world to feel good, to handle our troubles on our own. We are led to believe that the sign of a healthy life is the absence of struggle, that we are weak if we reach out for help. But, it is rare, if even possible, to find a person who does not struggle, at least a little. If struggle is a part of life, then I believe we must also contain the potential to struggle well. To struggle takes strength and courage. If you are reading this, you have already made your first step towards discovering your potential. "

"Most people who identify a need for therapy seem to be dealing with natural defense systems that help manage shock and developmental trauma. A defense response may be anxiety, depression, dissociation, psychosis, avoidant attachment, etc. A part of therapy is simply developing understanding and acceptance of defense mechanisms, then there is more capacity to reclaim or recover self regulation, co-regulation and self concept. I am interested in working with all people who have experienced trauma and as well as getting to the causal factors, developing grounding in the present and hope about the future."

"The question I’m always trying to ask as a counselor is not, “How can I help my clients cope better?” but rather, “How can I help them not have to cope quite so much in the first place?” Coping gets exhausting after a while, doesn’t it? Maybe you’ve been in counseling before, (maybe for a really long time) and maybe you’ve already learned some good ways of coping. I’m more interested in helping you truly, permanently heal on a deeper level so you don't have to take so many of those deep breaths. I've also learned that we usually can’t there just by talking about it. Talk therapy is often really helpful, but usually not enough. "

Many people find it difficult to feel confident and self assured, have peaceful, fulfilling relationships, navigate the demands of finances, family, work and home, and also focus on nourishing self care. These challenges are interconnected. They are related to how we have developed our sense of self in the context of family expectations and experiences, societal demands, cultural assumptions, and media influence.
