At the bedrock of what I do as a therapist is the belief that when we live out our values in our lives we are able to be happy in a genuine, healthy and sustainable way. Sounds simple enough, but there is pain in every life, even a well lived one. Our minds are built to maximize pleasure and to avoid pain. It is easy to become focused on avoiding feeling bad and have that consume our lives. Depression, Anxiety, Addiction, even relationship problems all have their roots in our urge to control how we feel and loosing touch with what is meaningful. Helping people get unstuck and live more meaningful lives is my role as therapist and is part of the way I live out my values in my own life.

Individual therapy can help you heal from past wounds of childhood, trauma and mood problems. Often, a person wants to talk with a therapist in an in-depth way. Therapy may be required on multiple days a week in order to revamp the personality for lasting happiness. Your therapist will ask you to talk about your inner thoughts in uncensored ways, relate dreams, and explore conflictual feelings in a safe yet concentrated way. Many people report that this type of work changes their very lives and the way they relate to others.
