"Like the lotus, our roots may be stuck in the mire of suffering, but we can grow towards the sunshine of love and realization."
Thank you for visiting my website.  If you need help with feelings of depression or anxiety, I can help by focusing on your unique needs, emotions and personal history.  We will develop a collaborative relationship that will enable you to heal past traumas and help you deal with your particular stressors, be it work, family or relationships that are hindering your sense of wellbeing.

Taking the first step towards getting help is often the hardest.  I hope this website helps you feel more at ease as to what to expect, and focus on what I, as a therapist, am able to offer.  For your convenience I have provided both a form and/or telephone contact so that it is easy for you to get in touch.

What to expect when you make your appointment.

I will meet you in my waiting area, where you are welcome to help yourself to tea if you are a little early. In your 50 minute session there will be no interruption. This time is completely yours.  At the end of each session, we will summarize what has been discussed, and set up the next session.  My office is convenient to downtown Ithaca, so it is easy to link into your day. Perhaps run some errands, or better: take a little walk on Cascadilla creek, or get a delicious coffee at the Gimme Coffee shop nearby.

You may like to know that I am from the United Kingdom, and have many International clients. I offer Skype sessions for people oversees, or when my clients are traveling and wish to continue their therapy.

I work with people in an inclusive way, of all sexual orientations and ethnicities.

Enjoy exploring my website.  You will find information on my areas of specialty and fees. The Stress Reduction/Mediatation page offers you some special guided meditations and visualizations to help with relaxation and focus.
