As some clients may know, I have been dealing with extensive medical / health issues over the last several months.  As I continue to navigate my health, I have made the difficult decision to retire.  Due to medical reasons, my retirement is effective immediately and I will no longer be seeing clients.  While the decision to retire wasn't easy, I am confident it is what is best in order to focus on my health. 

I appreciate your patience and understanding. 

I have deeply valued my career as a therapist and am honored to have been a part of so many journeys of discovery and growth.  It has truly been a privilege. 

Compassion is not a relationship between the

healer and the wounded.

Only when we know our own darkness well can we 

be present with the darkness of others.

Compassion becomes real when we recognize

our shared humanity. ~Pema Chodron

Thank you for sharing your humanity with me.
