"A wounded healer with strong emotional and relational intelligence, I help high functioning individuals struggling to map their own journey and overcome their own self-doubt. Sensitive yet straightforward, I ask the unasked questions to get them deep within themselves to self-reflect, discover their truth and own their story. Intuitive, tough, and with a touch of humor, I encourage them to find calm amidst chaos, serenity amidst struggle and hope amidst hopelessness. As they step into their own power, sometimes for the first time ever, I tap into my own “white magic “to bring all the good in the universe into their lives and mine. "

"My approach to therapy is based on developing a deep emotional connection with the people in our lives, improving self-esteem, accessing inner resources to cope with difficulties and learning to have compassion for ourselves and others. Although therapy can be very helpful when we are going through a difficult time in our lives, it is also an important self-care practice. Just like we attend yoga or the gym to take care of our bodies, taking care of our emotional and mental health is just as important.
