My goals as a therapist are to create a safe and supportive environment in which clients can share their thoughts and feelings freely, to learn more effective coping skills and interventions in order to ease symptoms and solve problems as well as gaining deeper insight about themselves, the world and their future. My approach is to meet clients where they are in life without judgement. Therapy sessions are collaborative where client and therapist examine and question client's distorted thoughts and core beliefs as well as developing positive strategies and healthier ways of thinking as they move forward in their lives.

Our mental health can sometimes take us through a whirlwind of emotions and unexpected behaviors, without an understanding of why. Whether it be our first experience with anxiety, depression, or a stressful life transition, it tends to manifest in the ways we feel, think, and do. I work with clients who are having difficulty managing thoughts of anxiety, feelings of depression, or find themselves with challenges associated to sleep and stress. My goal is to help you bridge together your mind and body awareness with the intention of learning how to care for you whole person.

People seek therapy because something in their life is not working. They are unhappy. I believe change is always possible and that I can help people live a fuller life. I have trust in everyone's ability to heal. Therapy is a process of being with another human being who wants to change, listening to his/her story, witnessing his/her pain, confusion and uncertainty. I believe that healing comes from acceptance of others and ourselves, remembering our strengths and developing healthy relationships. Therapy is a practice of Mindfulness; giving deep attention to what is happening in the present moment.

Change is a given part of life. One's response to change can mean the difference of having a good day or a bad one, a fulfilling life or feeling stuck in a situation. One's response to change depends on one's thoughts and feelings about the change. Changing one's thoughts about a situation can be challenging. It occurs little by little. It takes a lot patience and practice to make changes. My clients may have depression, anxiety, attention problems, other behavioral or emotional problems or traumatic experiences to change.

My ideal client has some insight and understands that therapy is work. It's not just about having me (or anyone else) solve their problems -- it's something that has to be done jointly. They also need to be willing to listen and change.

Who said life would be easy? I have created a safe and empathetic environment for those that would like help on their journey. There is no reason for you to suffer alone in this life. Research has found the longer trauma, depression and anxiety go untreated the worse it will get. The good news is there is help for you. I offer transparency and genuineness in my practice. This helps create a safe environment where you can share your story and not feel judged. It's easy in our fast-paced world to forget about ourselves. I don't mean this in a selfish way. I mean it in a way where you can genuinely start to create balance for yourself.

Life is wonderfully perfect, until we feel it has come to an end. When that dark path presents itself, it is time to take a challenge that perhaps we have avoided for a very long time. A challenge could be perceived as a change which could bring new beginnings or a change, we may fear the most. The question we should be asking ourselves is, “Am I ready to take that challenge?” Mental Health is a part of the human anatomy that is needed for an individual to have the best quality of life. Individuals feelings and emotions are crucial to be validated for individuals to have that best quality of life.

Life sometimes throws you unexpected challenges that can make you feel overwhelmed, anxious, and hopeless. If you are struggling with life challenges that are impacting your quality of life, I am here to tell you there is hope. Loss is often one of our biggest life challenges that trigger mental health issues. Grief is a natural response to loss, whether that is a loss of a relationship, job, or death of a loved one, it can also bring up thoughts and feelings of past traumas. Processing and learning about loss and grief and what to expect when grieving can help you grow and heal.

Does the world seem chaotic and to not make sense? Does it seem like you should be able to do more, but just can’t? Does it seem like there are social rules everyone else knows? Does it seem like when things go wrong, it’s your fault, but you don’t know why? Are you exhausted from ‘playing the role' of yourself in your life, trying to ‘do it right'? All families want peace, all individuals want greater ease and understanding in their lives. With over 25 years of providing services to exceptional individuals, I know the importance of having the right support for the need at hand.
