I help clients gain keen insight into themselves as well as to be empowered to create the life they want. I have successfully worked with clients with depression, anxiety, social skills, relationship issues, domestic violence, trauma, Autism, ADHD and educational difficulties.

"I believe a successful therapeutic relationship is rooted in a deep academic understanding of human development, but is most effective when expressed as a pure, honest and simple communication between client and therapist. My approach is to actively engage, creating a supportive and collaborative environment that is equally empathic and challenging. By focusing on both past experiences and present circumstances, I seek to access the client's inner strengths in order to overcome difficult situations, make life changes and break unhealthy patterns."

"I enjoyed very much my post licensure work at a family institute. Whether working with a child, an adolescent, an adult, a dyad or the whole family, I will initially focus on the person suffering the most. Based on the presenting symptom, I may do brief crisis intervention to stabilize a situation until an individual's underlying issue has been crystallized. The life issue causing depression, anxiety, and fears will then be addressed in more depth. My approach is to assist people in their own healing, maximizing on their own strengths and resources."

"Some people struggle with preconceived ideas about what therapy is. I ask my clients if they had a tooth ache, would they go to a dentist to relieve their pain? I see difficult life experiences, transitions and "stuff" we struggle with as the same as taking those issues to a therapist. If you are stuck in your life, suffering and experiencing a significant loss, if a relationship is troubling, if your anxiety is getting the best of you, if your depression has got you paralyzed ...then seeking relief is taking care of yourself. For any of these issues, therapy is the place to take it."
