I had been providing counsel to legal clients for 25 years before I thought about pursuing my training as a psychotherapist. Like many others who work hard and achieve some success in life, age had left me with more questions than answers. I wasn't feeling as connected or fulfilled as I thought I should — It felt as though a part of me was missing.

So I sought the help of a psychotherapist. I'm not sure if I knew exactly what to expect at that point. I knew I wanted to feel better. To feel like myself again. What I discovered was a profoundly transformative realization: I had, in fact, changed... and that was ok. All I needed was to discover and embrace the person I was becoming.

Maybe you've felt similarly — hungry for a sense that life is meaningful. In the years I've been practicing as a psychotherapist, I've made it my goal to provide that same kind of transformative self-discovery to others. The most exciting thing I've found is that my experience wasn't a fluke.

There are many different theories and techniques of psychotherapy, and I've been trained in a number of them. But I'll tell you up front — no theory can tell you who you are, and no technique is a panacea. Those tools of psychotherapy offer starting points for you and I to begin collaborating on how to understand you better. I'll engage you in a respectful, calm, and reassuring dialogue, so that together we can explore ideas you may have overlooked.

Together, I am confident we will find the answers for you. Because I have learned through my own journey and through helping many others like you that the answers we seek can be found within. Therapy provides a path to finding them.

Hope is a good thing, perhaps the best of things. If you are feeling hopeful that I can help you, then don’t wait to call. Take this small step now and you will not regret it. You have nothing to lose and a whole new way of being to gain.
