Give up all the other worlds, except the one to which you belong. --David Whyte

Welcome

Whatever brought you to my website, whatever it is that has you looking for a therapist, I consider you being here an act of courage. It isn’t always easy to reach out, to take a step into the unknown. Whether you are here in hope, pain, excitement, fear–or all of it all at once–you are starting something new right now, and that is brave.

I hope that as you spend a little time on this site, you get a sense of me and my therapeutic approach, and maybe, whether or not I could be a good fit for what it is you’re seeking.

Of course, this is just meant to be a first impression. If you want to know more, I invite you to contact me and begin a conversation.

 

The Journey

One day you finally knew
what you had to do, and began,
though the voices around you
kept shouting
their bad advice—
though the whole house
began to tremble
and you felt the old tug
at your ankles.
“Mend my life!”
each voice cried.
But you didn’t stop.
You knew what you had to do,
though the wind pried
with its stiff fingers
at the very foundations,
though their melancholy
was terrible.
It was already late
enough, and a wild night,
and the road full of fallen
branches and stones.
But little by little,
as you left their voices behind,
the star began to burn
through the sheets of clouds,
and there was a new voice
which you slowly
recognized as your own,
that kept you company
as you strode deeper and deeper
into the world,
determined to do
the only thing you could do—
determined to save
the only life you could save.
