Message to clients

Psychotherapy is a practice of putting our interior lives into language — the things we generally have a difficult time speaking are often the things that cause us to suffer, feel depressed, or create anxiety in our lives. Many people find that creating space in our day-to-day lives to speak and to be heard by a thoughtful, compassionate, curious, and interested professional alleviates these negative experiences and allows us to live fuller, more complex and more meaningful lives. My work centers around creating a serious, interesting, useful, and safe space to begin exploring the depths of what causes you to suffer, or the things that one cannot yet speak that create a feeling of being trapped, stuck, or blocked.
