"Therapy is a place for inquiry and finding meaning. Whether you are hoping to better understand your relationship patterns, process past and/or ongoing trauma, explore shifts in your identity, make a difficult decision or choose your next step(s), I bring a curious and warm presence to your exploration. The intersection of your various identities are fundamental to your connections to self and others, thus, I consider power and privilege and the social location(s) of each individual as I work to understand your path towards healing.

"Emotional problems can be difficult to cope with and resolve alone. Whether you have experienced a painful loss, are suffering from anxiety or depression, are feeling stifled in your relationships, or cannot seem to reach your goals, the help of an experienced professional can assist you in initiating the changes that will allow you to lead a more satisfying life. Understanding your emotional life is essential to your personal and professional well being. We use to have this top-down notion that reason was superior to emotion. However, recent research clearly shows that we think better when we know and can process our emotions."

"My work is with individuals and couples who are ready to roll up their sleeves and get down to the task of making transformative shifts in their lives. Often people come to therapy believing that our history makes us who we are. Using the therapy relationship as a secure base from which to explore, clearing away the clutter and loosening a few knots, we often find that our history has obscured who we really are. In some way, most of us are longing for a sense of well-being that is not wholly dependent on external circumstances."

"If you are here searching for a therapist, it is probably safe to assume that you are struggling right now. You might find yourself feeling stuck and not knowing how to move forward in your life, your relationships, or your work. Maybe you just forgot how to have fun. And no matter what you do; nothing seems to lift the dark cloud. You might find yourself doing things that make you feel better in the moment, and that you know aren't good for you, but are having a difficult time figuring out any other options. I get it."

"I work primarily with people who are dealing with anxiety or depression and my primary model of treatment is Cognitive Behavioral therapy (CBT). I believe that our difficulties are more often as result of how we are thinking about our problems rather than the problems themselves. CBT provides skills and tools for coping with your thoughts as well as the difficult emotions that come along with your thinking. CBT can also be helpful for procrastination or for being withdrawn. My professional work can be characterized as being active, empathetic, compassionate, energizing and motivational."

Often we don't realize how the old hurts, bitterness, regret, shame and beliefs "contaminate" our communicate with others. The feeling underneath our message is also received by the other person.
