I recognize that people are incredibly unique and they have freedom of choice in all aspects of lifestyle, personal relationship and family arrangement.
We live in a demanding era in which the choices and pressures of everyday life can be overwhelming, causing both interpersonal and intrapersonal conflict. Therapy is the process of change, generating self-affirming thought patterns towards a hopeful and resilient future, a centered and balanced life.

Family life is both rewarding and challenging. Raising children is an important job and it can feel overwhelming at times. No two people parent the same way and how to blend two different life patterns and meet the needs of an individual child, while rewarding, can also feel frustrating. Having tools to navigate these challenges can help you feel confident and deepen your self-awareness. Working as a team with you and your child we will build on strengths and develop strategies for solving issues.

Healthy relationships with family , friends, colleagues, and ourselves help us to cope with stress more easily and endure life’s challenges with grace.
I seek to offer a welcoming and safe space for you to explore your sense of self and the challenges you may be facing. Due to symptoms that hinder our ability to solve problems and thrive, we can become blocked from experiencing the full range of human emotion. Our sessions will increase your capacity to feel joy, playfulness and a sense of purpose in your life. My therapeutic style is collaborative, transparent and playful while using an integrative mind-body approach. I will encourage you to tap into the creativity and openness that allows you to gain new perspective and discover your own capacity to make meaningful change.

Traditional Western therapy tends to focus on the individual and their family of origin; I expand the scope to also consider the other cultural and societal systems at play.
It is a privilege to be able to walk alongside a person in their journey to heal, learn, and grow. Whether you seek support in becoming the most authentic version of your ever-evolving self or have specific issues you want to tackle, I will be here to hold space for you with warmth and gentle curiosity. Each person is the expert of their own life, and I customize therapy to fit your strengths and needs. I bring my genuine self to each session, and hope to provide an atmosphere where you feel comfortable and free to do the same.

I work with children adolescents adults and families, in individual, play, family , couples and group psychotherapy.
We are all in the process of change, it is an unavoidable element of life. The trick is to have the willingness to look at how we wish to change, and take steps to do so. This may involve simply developing a different perspective on some struggle or other. No matter what the problem is though it takes courage, to allow another person to see our vulnerability. With that willingness there are very few problems which cannot be significantly improved or solved. Encouragement from a person who understands what we struggle with can help empower us to take action to feel better and be happier..

There is no problem too big that we can’t resolve together in a collaborative style.

Do you ever ask yourself, "Why do I keep doing the same things but expect different outcomes?" Or "Do I look at the world differently than all my family and friends?" Life can feel stressful, overwhelming, and out of control at times. I try to help life feel a little bit more manageable and work through issues at your own pace. Psychotherapy is about an exploration of self and the world around you. As a psychotherapist, I am here to provide guidance through this exploration in a safe place and to improve interaction with those you love.
