"People often come to therapy when they feel stuck, unhappy, or when they feel the need to make a meaningful change in their lives. While suffering is part of being human, therapy provides an opportunity to address the causes of suffering that may interfere with our ability to fully attend to the things that matter most to us in our lives.

"In addition to genuine concern and empathy, clients have mentioned my 'particular blend of pragmatism and humor' as helpful in establishing a collaborative therapeutic relationship. I see therapy as a conversation focusing on understanding you as a whole person. This includes your relationship with a variety of areas of life, such as intimate relationships, family, friends work, spirituality, and many others. Together, we can address barriers that limit your ability to fully engage with these areas of your life. This can be useful whether you are hoping to deal with a specific issue or event, develop a better understanding of yourself, or both."
