Professional statement

It is a human imperative to grow, and keep growing.

However, sometimes we get stuck in systems which are too rigid to allow for the growth we need to do. At other times, life presents a huge plot twist and we need to accelerate the pace to keep up and keep moving. Therapy can be a great resource to help with either of these dilemmas.

Whatever you’re bringing to the room, we can make space for it together. We will figure out what’s negotiable and what isn’t; where you have agency and where there is a need for acceptance and perhaps grief about what can’t be resolved.

The most important cornerstone of the work is the therapeutic relationship itself. The first step is to meet and find out if we are a good fit.


Message to clients

It’s important to know where we came from, to understand our own story. I believe the greatest value in that understanding is in taking the wisdom and knowledge and insights from that experience to guide what we choose next. Together we’ll come up with new perspectives on the problem and new behaviors to experiment with, and together we will process the results.
