Are you stuck? Do you want authentic feedback from your therapist? This is not an easy decision to make and I take all issues seriously to help you help yourself. Many of my clients say as they leave "Thank you for changing my life."

If you are a Searcher, and want to "truly "Know Thyself," I look forward to helping you help yourself to move forward from past pain or fear. I primarily seek to help you to move ahead out of stuck-ness. Stress reduction is one of my main specialties in this face paced life. Please see my website for more information

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

is watching clients become more of themselves, livelier and happier.

Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed

You are strong to face your issues head on. Avoiding yourself (who you are and what you feel and need) does not bring you closer to being whole and integrated. Only by facing these issues can you really grow. Going to therapy is courageous and it is a myth if you talk about yourself, you are selfish. No. You are selfish if you expect others to take care of you. It is your job to take good care of yourself. This process is not always easy and I work with you to provide support so you don't feel alone during this process. In the end, hopefully, your life will be transformed. This is exciting and empowering.
