"Sudden and dramatic life transitions can rock our world, causing us to frequently feel disoriented and unsettled.

I welcome the opportunity to work with you to heuristically discover and strengthen your inner-self and potentiality."

"Daily life brings plenty of stresses, but most of us manage to function pretty well in spite of them. Sometimes, however, the stresses become more than we can handle, making us feel nervous, sad or angry. We might argue more with loved ones, have trouble sleeping or difficulty concentrating. Physical problems might show up like headaches or stomach complaints. If all this weren't enough, we might self-medicate by doing things like over-eating, excessive drinking or shopping. While these activities are actually attempts to self-comfort, a more productive way to gain relief when life gets out of control is to seek therapy."

"This defines my view of being a therapist: "One of the greatest privileges of the human being is to become a midwife to the birth of the soul of another person. This is what therapy is about: helping people retrieve what has been lost to them, wakening and bringing home their fundamental wholesomeness” (from Plato's Symposium). John O’Donohue continues: “Therapists are like poets: they draw on the power of words in the profoundly creative work of bringing people fully alive to themselves, awakening in them the human capacity for divine imagination that ‘dreams our completion’.”"
