" Young people experience many challenges in the cyber age. Not only are they struggling to cope with traditional stressors such as family, friends, and school, but they feel sadder and lonelier than ever. My goal is to assist our youth with finding their voice, embracing their strengths, and for them to become empowered. I want to provide preteens, adolescents, and young adults with a safe, judgment-free space that allows them to explore their cultural, racial, economic, spiritual, and gender identities so that they may decide who they are for themselves."

"As we go through life, we all develop particular patterns for dealing with challenges. Though some of these patterns are helpful, others actually get in the way of reaching our goals. Sometimes we're not even aware that what we're doing may be sabotaging our happiness and success. In therapy, I will give you direct feedback which will illuminate these problematic patterns. This will help you understand how to overcome obstacles, and find deeper satisfaction in your life. As a therapist with over 20 years experience, I have helped many people work through depression and anxiety and move towards success."

"One thing I have learned, of which I am absolutely certain, in both my personal and professional life experiences: we can't look outside of ourselves to guarantee deep-rooted peace and lasting joy. Short term fixes that originate externally might bring temporary relief, but will not bring unwavering peace. Repressed pain will eventually resurface, or come out sideways onto our loved ones. Lasting relief comes when we become honest with ourselves about ourselves, willing to experience the difficult emotions that we try to avoid through external distractions and open to the process of becoming comfortable with feeling uncomfortable.
