Available Online throughout California


You’re always striving to find some relief.

“I just need to get over that next hill,” you tell yourself. “Then I can finally relax.”

So, you struggle and strive and finally make it to the top.

Only to discover that there’s yet another hill for you to climb. There’s always another hill.

It feels like you’re just going through the motions.

Every day is a chore without any meaning or purpose.

It’s as though you can never quite find your footing in the world.

You wish you knew what was wrong, but you’re stuck in place and feel lost.

Relationships are strained.

There’s a story of a man who would talk reassuringly to his cactus, letting it know it was safe. In time, the cactus learned that it no longer needed its thorns.

You sometimes wish you could remove the thorns that shut you off from the world and limit your connection to others.

But the voice in your head constantly tells you that you are in danger, and you don’t have anyone to reassure you otherwise.

You want to change but don’t know how.

Over time, unresolved emotions can build up and come out in conflict and growing feelings of restlessness, hopelessness, and purposelessness.

It’s easy to stay in your comfort zone, but you already know it only leads to greater dissatisfaction and despair.

And the longer you ignore the problem, the longer you are saying no to living with inspiration, creativity, and awe.

Take the next step.

Sometimes, it helps to have somewhere to bring those thoughts and feelings that are hard to face alone and those parts you don’t think other people could ever understand.

But this is an opportunity to cultivate your personal growth. Just as plants need sunlight, water, and nutrients to grow, so do people need the right conditions to thrive.

Therapy is here to create the ideal conditions for your growth.

Call me


You will come to a place where the streets are not marked
Some windows are lighted. But mostly they’re darked.
A place you could sprain both your elbow and chin!
Do you dare to stay out? Do you dare to go in?
How much can you lose? How much can you win?

– Dr. Seuss
