"We use to have hard times whenever faced by difficulties that challenge our ego. Most of the time, we tend to avoid coping with these challenges, or we do deal with them in destructive ways, mainly because of not having learned more assertive functional ways to take care of ourselves, relationships and circumstances in life. My approach is focused on promoting your insight about why you think, feel and react the ways you do, supporting you to take advantage of your own potentials, improve skills and guiding you on taking good care of your core needs and expectations."

"Eu acredito que pais são muito importantes e que educam seus filhos da melhor maneira possível dentro do grau de habilidade que eles têm. Algumas vezes existe uma disparidade entre o que os pais podem oferecer e as necessidades emocionais da criança. Meu foco principal no trabalho terapêutico com meus clientes é desenvolver um entendimento intuitivo dos talentos primários e também das áreas que não foram desenvolvidas por culpa das limitações no estilo pessoal dos pais. Nosso trabalho juntos poderá aumentar o entendimento geral do seu perfil psicológico e também facilitar a manifestação das suas potencialidades. "

" The fabric of our lives is interwoven to create a tapestry that is unique to our experiences. At times, some of those experiences can feel overwhelming and a daunting task to make sense of. Therapy is a highly creative process that allows for weaving in and expanding upon parts of the tapestry to provide a more robust and multidimensional landscape. Together, we can be curious and inviting, seeking an understanding of what comes up for you in the moment and how this can inform and cultivate better relations to yourself and others. "

"The depth tradition holds that all healing begins with a call or a longing manifested through symptoms like depression, anxiety, discontent, pain, or illness. If we choose to accept the invitation of our symptoms and our pain, we may discover that they can be life's unique way of getting our attention ~ drawing us into a deeper engagement and collaboration with our authentic self. Symptoms invite us to consider what needs shifting, shedding, grieving, loving, embracing; what is true, meaningful, creative, and life affirming. I welcome the opportunity to assist you in your process of self discovery, growth and healing."

"The human experience is full of ups and downs. Sometimes life can feel overwhelming due to many reasons. At times we need a place to process outside of our family and friend circle. Psychotherapy can give you the opportunity to have a "safe space" where you can discuss and problem solve what is making you feel "stuck," dissatisfied or unhappy without judgment. Everyone has a personal story to tell. How one tells their story, and processes it, affects how they will feel. By developing a narrative that is strength-based, you can move towards improved well-being and an increased sense of hope. "
