I approach therapy through a multicultural, attachment-based, and trauma-informed lens.
I believe that healing happens when we pay attention to all the parts that make us whole—our mind, body, and soul. My theoretical orientation is influenced by Family Systems, Attachment Theory, Emotionally-Focused, Humanistic-Experiential, and Narrative approaches to treatment. This means that we will be going on an emotional journey together in which I will use an eclectic combination of clinical theories and techniques to help guide my work. I believe that the lack of emotional awareness and avoiding uncomfortable emotions can cause harm to our mind, body, and soul. My hope is to help you get to know yourself better and learn how

Pronouns: He/Him/His. In relationships, we often begin to argue about the most insignificant topics, and our attempts in reaching out to our partner go unnoticed and/or are rejected. Which leads us to begin to question if they love us or if they even care. But what leads us to argue with our partner is not the topic at hand, but rather the feeling unloved, under appreciated, alone, and disconnected.

Through an empathic and individualized therapeutic process, positive and long lasting change can be possible. You are not alone, and I would love to be part of that journey. Working a process influenced by the attachment theory, can result in living a stronger and more satisfied life with yourself and your relationships. I believe that learning how we developed our attachment in childhood, can help us understand why we react, respond and relate to others in our present. Once we achieve that, we can start experimenting change, discover our authenticity, become the best version of ourselves, and really enjoy the power of LOVE.

If you are experiencing depression, anxiety, or numbness, I’m here for you. Blaming yourself or feeling guilt or shame is no fun. These experiences are probably affecting your relationships, even the one with yourself. Your body gets bombarded with danger signals and in an attempt to cope you have learned to ignore your gut feeling and to numb the outside. Now you are noticing that this has challenged your ability to manage stressful situations, and it has led you to feel easily overwhelmed and wishing you could just shut it all off. This is what Complex PTSD can feel like when it goes untreated.

Life is too short to settle and I strongly believe everyone has the capacity to live a fulfilling life. We were molded and created to live in relationship with one another as well as enjoy every season of it, be it at mountain tops or through valley lows. However, sometimes it is difficult to notice the bright side, but do not worry - you’re not alone. If you desire to take that step and move towards love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, gentleness, and self-control, or perhaps a deeper connection with your partner, your children and overall relationships with others then you have come to the right place.
