"As of June 10th, I have availability for new clients on Wednesdays, Thursdays & Fridays. Life can be hard. With life's challenges and demands, it is easy to get drained, tired, overwhelmed and worried. You get so caught up in doing things that the world demands of you that you may forget to tune-in to yourself. Therapy is a space where you can break away from the world, allow yourself to reflect, and explore how and why you're living your life the way you are. It's where you can have good days and you can have bad days and both are completely okay and accepted. And, eventually, in that space a transformation can happen."

"Growing up can be exciting, but it's super overwhelming. There are major life decisions to be made, and it's scary you could make the wrong one. Everyone else you know seems to have it together, but you're stressed out and don't know if you're going to succeed. You don't really talk to anyone about what you're going through, and feel lost as you try to pave your way."

"Like many therapists I like articulate motivated clients. However, I also like difficult clients:I like clients who question how I think;who have never been to therapy before or who have had a previous therapy experience which was unsatisfying. If I weren't a psychotherapist I'd be a stand-up comic, so clients with a good sense of humor would appreciate me. I work well with men struggling to be emotionally tuned in to their partners. I also work well with individuals in mid-life who are questioning what to do with the rest of their life."
