From my point of view, every one of us is capable of peace and happiness. If the mind is not cluttered with dark or negative thoughts, and if there are no blocks to your emotions, and if there is not something out of whack in your thought processes, you will revert back to your ‘default setting’…happiness or contentedness. The devil is in the details, however, as if it were that simple, everyone would be content/happy, and no-one would suffer emotional pain for any length of time. The reality is, however, that many of us go through much pain and suffering, and have no idea why. And, if you can’t understand why you feel the way you do, you have no hope of fixing it, unless by some random chan

It is critical that you develop a connected and trusting relationship with your therapist. That you feel safe and understood. When this relationship is formed, healing often begins. I am very influenced by positive psychology and neuroscience (the science of the brain). The concept of neuro-plasticity - that our brains can heal and improve at every age - offers hope and a guide to achieving the changes we desire.

Sitting with another and trusting them with your heart is a brave, beautiful, vulnerable choice. I am always honored and moved when someone chooses to bring to me their deepest thoughts and feelings - and in return, I bring unconditional love and care to each session, and work mindfully in every moment I spend with my clients. It is so important to me that you, as my client, know you are loved, that you are heard, and that your feelings will be held in confidence and with gentle care. That together, we will walk through whatever darkness you are facing, and that together we will work towards bringing you peace and wholeness.

Let’s face it – many children and teenagers don’t like therapy or counseling. It’s boring. It’s uncomfortable. They’re not sure how it’s supposed to work. I approach kids differently than most therapists do. I don’t bombard them with a lot of questions and I don’t try to “get” them to talk with me—an undertaking I find as insulting to us both as it is unproductive. Instead, I introduce a variety of topics and see which ones evolve into conversations that can heal, animate, encourage, stimulate, or inspire. I answer questions, offer opinions, and say what I think is going on without ever trying to muscle any points across. I work quickly, but never rush.
