    You know what is on your mind, what beckons for your attention. A therapeutic conversation can begin here. Slowing down, taking the time to listen for what demands your attention, further develops your capacity to understand and make sense of your life. Therapy offers time to consider your life deeply.

    The way we speak about our experiences shapes the way we know ourselves and interact with others. Through dialogue, I help individuals harness the power of expression to forge healthy and vibrant connections both inwards and outwards. As new perspectives are spoken into being, we can bring about the changes that we have long hoped for.

    Emotional suffering is painful and lonely. It doesn’t have to be. Psychotherapy is talk therapy that promises change through self-awareness. The more understanding we have of our-selves and our feelings, the more choice, fulfillment, and peace we have in our lives. Under-standing our emotional life contributes greatly to the joy of life.

    Early life experiences inform how we construct and move through our adult lives. But outdated models of relating or patterns of feeling can block growth and fulfillment.

    Many clients entering therapy wonder, “How can only talking help me?” The increased sense of well-being we gain in therapy is more than just a worded experience. Current research in neurobiology validates the effectiveness of talk therapy, in which the therapeutic conversation creates “limbic resonance.” When you sit with a calm, knowledgeable, experienced psychotherapist you are neurologically regulating mind and mood.

    The world can be either a meaningful or miserable place, depending on how we perceive ourselves.

    There seems to be an expectation when asked “How are you doing?” that only a positive response is invited. If we’re all “good”, why are many of us actually feeling bad? Psychotherapy provides a space where what you are truly feeling will be heard. Together, we will reflect and attend with care to whatever you are feeling.
