"There is a saying, "In youth, we run into difficulties. In old age, difficulties run into us." Sometimes life can be really hard. Even the strongest individual may need support and guidance in dealing with unexpected circumstances, or in managing conflict and personal challenges. I believe that through safe, reassuring, and compassionate therapy, clients can work through any struggle, connect to their best authentic selves, and achieve long-term growth and personal transformation."

"In today's world we are surrounded by constructive and destructive forces. It is easy to get sucked in by the destructive forces such as fear or negativity which can lead to uneasiness, deep sadness, and disappointments. I believe therapy can be a great tool to shift your focus to more constructive forces within yourself, your family, and your environment. Therapy can help you to channel the pain into creation of a peaceful act, whether that's developing greater self-compassion, or untangling any relationship issues."

"There are times when life gets difficult. -We experience a level of distress that may make us uncomfortable, overwhelmed, confused, anxious, sad and/or depressed, because of the loss of a job, a change in career, ending of a significant relationship, or a major shift, move, or transition. Our goal is to feel "better" and "happier", but how do we get there? Sometimes the solution is short-term (counseling or coaching) and sometimes it could take more time (psychotherapy) to address deeper issues and patterns we are ready to let go of. Each individual is different, but you are reading this because you are seeking healing and growth."

There can be so much going on internally, and sorting through, and making sense of it all may require support. The mind is a wonderful, and complex entity, which stores years of experience, memories, ideas, and beliefs, and needs to be re-visited from time to time, for clearing, re-organization, and integration to take place. A sense of well being can be a result of doing such deep psychological work. Depression, Anxiety, Stress, may all be consequences of a cluttered mind."
