"It's not easy to reach out for help, it takes courage and strength to do so. We all go through difficulties in life and sometimes a little perspective and guidance is necessary to help us choose the right path. I come from the belief that we are experts of ourselves, yet sometimes we need someone to help uncover our strengths and gently guide us back to center. I work from an integrative perspective which means that I utilize a variety of orientations and therapies, based on your individual needs and/or situation."

"Life satisfaction is directly linked to how we cope with life's challenges. When we participate in escapist behavior (drinking too much, overindulging on sugar, avoiding confrontation, Netflix binges), we can feel stuck and hopeless. We get caught in these painful ways of coping because they work, at least temporarily. I specialize in helping clients get unstuck by incorporating brain-based education and suggestions for change. It's a simple process but hardly easy, which is why I'm here to help."

"Over the course of life, people develop coping skills to deal with all kinds of emotional challenges. However, sometimes, individuals encounter situations for which they have no preparation or find the usually adequate coping skills are overwhelmed by the enormity of particular problem/problems. There may be patterns or behaviors that one feels stuck in or fated to repeat over-and-over. (Do you feel "stuck" but you cannot figure out how to release yourself?) In those instances a solution focused, warm, steady, and skillful therapist can assist individuals to understand the root causes of those distressing patterns."
