"When working with my clients, I choose to use an approach that is respectful, non-blaming, and collaborative. We all have stories about our lives, relationships, desires, beliefs, and strugles. Often times the problem latches onto these stories and creates negative effects in the past, present, and future. By gaining some distance from the problem, we can begin to explore, create, heal and discover unique outcomes. I aim to empower my clients by positioning them as the expert in their own lives. You are not the problem, the problem is the problem! "

"I specialize in working with people in transitional periods of life. Transitional phases can be identified by feelings of "stuckness," or a general sense that something just isn’t right in our lives. Often we feel hardened to the world or as if we're living in a dream. I know transformation can be painful and scary, but you don't have to do it alone. I am here to help. Together we can explore where you've been and where you want to go."

"The act of coming to therapy is a brave one, and you should commend yourself for doing it – you are taking proactive steps to create the life you want. I view therapy as an opportunity for you to evaluate the stories you and others tell about who you are, identify the storylines that are not serving you, and construct new narratives that focus on your strengths which can help you take a more active stance in your life. This process is simple but powerful, and I believe deeply that it can help all of us isolate and move past the problems that have worked their way into our lives, helping us to reclaim our power. "
