"You want things in your life to change, and you want them to change fast. I approach therapy from a practical perspective: part of our work together will be to help you determine what changes you want to make, and get started with some practical actions (yes, homework!). You can expect to see results fairly quickly, usually after 2 or 3 sessions. As we work together over 8-10 sessions, more deep-seated patterns may emerge, and you can decide to what extent you want to do this deeper change work."

"Seeking the assistance of a professional counselor is an important decision. Reaching out for help can be difficult, but once the decision has been made, most people, in my experience, find the outcome to be extremely rewarding. Stress, relationship difficulties, and career disenchantment are just a few of the normal issues that anyone may encounter over the course of one's life. Seeking an experienced and skilled counselor to help deal with any of these concerns is a demonstration of personal strength and healthy coping. "

"In most cases, our deepest wounds have relational origins. Despite our attempts to cope with these hurts, oftentimes the very solutions we seek become wounds of their own, patterns that draw us further from the sources of our suffering and leave us feeling hopeless and confused. As a psychoanalytic psychotherapist, my aim is to create a safe and confidential relationship where, in time, the hurt can be found and even transformed. Whether you are seeking a brief or more in-depth treatment, from the beginning we would work collaboratively on a treatment plan sensitive to your unique situation and goals."

"You may appear "fine" to those around you, but inside your emotions are intense and seem out of your control. You feel disconnected from your friends, your family and your life. It's overwhelming and you wonder how you got to this place. You desperately want to just, "let it go," but you don't know how. Right now, you're barely able to keep your head above water and if you don't get help soon, it feels like you might go under."
