"And the day came when the risk to remain tight in the bud was more painful than to blossom.” – Anais Nin

Hello

Since you’re reading this site you may be thinking of seeing a therapist. If this is your first time seeking counseling or if you are looking for a different therapist, this decision may be a little easier if you know what to expect from me.

I am easy going, down to earth and friendly. Your concerns are my number one priority. I’m a good listener and dedicate myself to hearing not only what you are saying but also to the meaning you attach to your issues. I have been described as a ‘seasoned’ therapist, which I like to think is a lovely way to say that I’m mature and highly skilled.

People reflect that I have a soothing voice. Emotional safety is of major concern to me and I strive to create an atmosphere where you feel safe to take risks. It is my intention that you leave my office after a first visit feeling heard, respected, understood and hopeful.

I often say that psychotherapy involves a lot of common sense. Instead of having to struggle our whole lives to learn our life’s lessons we shorten the time frame and build a toolbox survival kit in a relatively short time. Therapy intensifies and speeds up the learning period.
