"Anxiety and depression can make us feel stuck, but there is hope. Stress feels overwhelming, but this too shall pass. Relationship challenges can feel like the end of the world, but you can overcome. I want to help you get better and reclaim your strength. Often people are intimidated by the thought of going to see a therapist. Therapy doesn’t have to be painful, it is a process to having a better understanding of yourself. "

"Making the decision to begin therapy can be a difficult one.

I would encourage potential clients to have the willingness and courage to begin the process in a spirit of openness. My office is in Hillsboro Village, and it is a relaxing and comfortable space. I have some evening appointments on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday."

"A strong therapeutic relationship can provide the context for transformative healing and growth. I work well with people who have experienced trauma or deprivation in their early experience and who desire healing from those events, as well as those who feel stuck in unhealthy patterns of behavior. Since many chronic issues contain elements of earlier experiences, our work together may include increasing your awareness about how your past is at work in the present, reducing its ability to dictate your responses and choices, and letting go of defensive strategies that worked in the past but are not serving you now."
