"You work to be the best version of yourself, yet the people in your life seem to keep letting you down. You've been through some tough experiences and need to protect yourself, but you don't want to just keep putting up walls. You are invested in your relationships, but are wondering if you have to "be the bigger person" yet again. Therapy with me helps you get your needs met by letting go of your need for control, and get respect in relationships without feeling demanding. The quickest way to change others' behavior is to change your own."

"I believe the foundation of living a truly fulfilling life comes from genuine and nurturing connection to others. As a therapist, my work consists of helping you find this type of connection through embracing vulnerability, increasing acceptance, and learning to live whole-heartedly. Through our collaboration together, we can gently and compassionately explore your needs, hopes, and fears while empowering you to utilize your strengths. Ultimately, you will arrive at a place of greater integration of all parts of yourself, while developing greater curiosity, flexibility, acceptance and understanding of the painful emotions and challenges that arise throughout life."

"Perhaps you are struggling in a relationship, or dealing with the aftermath of a difficult life event. Maybe your child is acting in a way that you don't understand, and you are not sure what to do. You may have a unique cultural experience that you are not sure anyone will understand how to help you navigate. Or maybe you just don't feel right and need help figuring it out."

"I work well with individuals who are seeking to learn more holistic ways to address their emotional and relational challenges whether they be family of origin issues, trauma, the challenges of parenting a child with special needs, chronic illness, anxiety, or depression. My general frame work is that you cannot separate the body from the mind nor can you separate a person from their life time of experiences, therefore working with all of these systems is a highly effective way to improve happiness, decrease anxiety and stress, and increase coping skills to manage life with more ease and improved relationships."

"In our contemporary society it is easy to be content and even glad for medications that soothe symptoms, but healing comes from working through our underlying inner conflicts in a textured human relationship in which we can feel what we truly feel and become who we truly are. I believe distressful symptoms, whether depression, anxiety, anger, hurt, a sense of meaninglessness, a sense of emptiness, addictions, or behavior problems are signs. They are signs that it is time to grow our mindfulness of our underlying needs, feelings, and thereby gain choices for living more contently within our communities and families."
