"What is standing between you and living a life with confidence, purpose, and resilience? Maybe, on some level, you have always doubted yourself or felt intimidated by others. Hoping for happier, easier relationships with family and friends isn't getting you there. Maybe you've endured difficult experiences that continue to hold you back. Emotions are at the core of these types of problems and I believe they are best explored within an accepting and validating Person-Centered environment using effective approaches including Emotion-Focused and Cognitive-Behavioral Therapies."

"Depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship difficulties, unresolved grief, work-related problems, phobias, and stress are among the most common symptoms that I address. Of particular interest to me (and my specialized training) is to go beyond only treating the presenting symptoms and to discover and address what has caused them to occur. Both in my work experience and in my training I have learned that symptoms typically diminish using various forms of psychotherapy. However, unless the underlying causes are understood and resolved the gains are not usually sustained. Over time symptoms tend to reemerge."
