"Why are you seeking a therapist? Gaining an understanding of your needs is the first step we take together to develop your personal therapy. Yes, you read that right. I encourage my clients to be active participants in the development of their therapy. What is effective for one person is not necessarily effective for another. The strength of my therapeutic approach is in its transparency and my focus on guiding and empowering you, the client, in becoming an agent of change in your own life."

"I offer a modern engaging style of therapy. My philosophical approach recognizes the struggles and pains we share as humans. Common themes include motivation, choice, isolation-connection, uncertainty, and awe. We look with curiosity at what is important to you - your wants and the obstacles that hinder you. Despite the pressures of others and of culture, and the "shoulds" that nag and haunt us, I believe that we move more freely and live more richly when we come to recognize our fears and trust our wants."

Want more clarity and joy in your life? My approach explores pain as a calling to change and grow into more of who we truly are. I work best in partnership with those who are curious to learn about themselves and their relationships, do homework between sessions, and thereby grow, becoming more content and happy as whole human beings.

The truth is, we all have things that get in the way of our happiness: past traumas that need to be healed, ways of thinking and being in the world that no longer serve us. And that is where therapy comes in. The therapeutic relationship is like no other. It provides a space for you to truly be seen, supported and accepted, a place where your own natural capacity for healing can take over."
