"Beginning therapy can be scary and intimidating, but also hopeful. Discussing your wishes and uncertainties in session can promote clarity and lead to positive changes in thinking and behavior that are necessary to improve circumstances and relationships. Action is required for positive life changes to occur. It isn't always easy figuring out what action to take or what changes to make. Therapy is a safe place to explore these thoughts and feelings. Small shifts can lead to large improvements in mood and relationships. Please reach out with questions or to schedule an initial consultation."

"Psychotherapy is a journey of discovery. It is a walk toward the self. The purpose of psychotherapy is to assist the patient with knowing the Self: their intrinsic goodness, wisdom and strength found within. For women and couples, this requires a setting aside of assumptions about the self and others in order for curiosity to emerge. In psychotherapy, we explore what brings meaning to life and what creates value. We ask, “Do my actions bring me closer to the person I want to be?” As I assist the patient with shoring up coping skills we also explore the wondrous road back to the Self. "
