"The voyage of discovery comes not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes." - Marcel Proust
I have felt privileged to walk with many people as they have sought more fulfilling lives. My experiences have taught me that people possess a tremendous capacity to grow, to feel joy, and to foster loving relationships. Unfortunately, for many of us these innate capacities have been stymied by painful lived experiences within our families, with our peers or partners, with mentors, or even from invalidating messages embedded in our culture. The ache of these experiences can leave us anxious and stuck in a self-protective posture where, rather than being able to access our capacity to thrive, we are instead trying to guard against further pain.
The cornerstone of my work is the belief that people prosper best in an atmosphere of warmth, curiosity, and compassion, where they can engage in an honest exploration of their difficulties. I have often been touched by both the poignancy of the wounds that people can explore when they feel supported, as well as the resilience and hopefulness they can access to pursue the vision of life they seek for themselves.
