"Psychotherapy is, most honestly, a very remarkable and often surprising kind of 'conversation.' The distinction being that when we have a 'conversation,' we only know where it will begin, but not where it will end. The 'getting there,' the movement toward 'the end,' is often a thought-provoking, pleasurable, funny, sad, profound experience that changes people in wholly positive ways. When therapist and patient develop a good working relationship, transformative things can happen. My work centers around creating a serious, useful, and private space to begin exploring the depths of what causes you to suffer, or feel misunderstood."

"People seek therapy for a variety of reasons: anxiety, depression, relationship complications, sexuality issues, to name just a specific few; or it may be a combination of issues, or even for reasons one cannot immediately put a finger on -- a general sense of "just not feeling right." Regardless the reasons, you likely found this site in a search for relief and/or a better understanding of where you find yourself at this particular moment in your own story. So now comes the (sometimes) daunting task of finding someone who might offer help."

"Making the 1st phone call can sometimes feel like the hardest step. I believe talking about past & present life experiences can help one begin to develop insight into patterns that may hold you back from what you want; meaningful romantic relationships,productivity/ success at work, or stronger connections in general. Symptoms can diminish and confidence can increase as you feel more empowered and in control in understanding your life, which helps you make the changes that held you back in the past. I work with young children, adolescents, adults, as well as individuals, couples & families. I provide both short and long term psychotherapy."
