I love the work I do, although it involves dealing with people's painful life events and dynamics. I strongly believe in change. I am privileged because daily I witness our human capacity for healing and growth. My ideal client is the one ready to face truth, find hope and strength to change his or her life circumstances. My style, training, and professional experience emphasize understanding culture, working in the context of family and community, completing treatment goals, developing prevention plans and understanding our individual and family histories (short and long term treatment according to family or individual's needs).

You seem fine on the outside, but inside you feel you are not good enough, a failure, never enough. You want to be able to go through the day without feeling anxious, overwhelmed, depressed or all on your own. You're your own worst critic. You don't want to need alcohol or pot or comfort food to cope. You want to be able to handle your emotions better. You're wondering if life will ever get better, or if this is as good as it gets. Deep down, you feel guilty or ashamed. Social events may be difficult for you. Maybe you've been through a trauma (abuse, car accident, relationship breakup, etc.) and are having trouble moving on.

I view therapy as a search to discover more meaning and satisfaction in life, free from crippling symptoms. Although crisis often drives people into therapy, they often leave with precious opportunites for new life. Energy that had been spent managing problems like anxiety, addiction and depression can be used to create a life of healthy purpose and pleasure. I view my role as providing therapeutic presence to create a safe environment and caring relationship, elements necessary to support one's search for authentic self and healthy self-expression.

Sharing our inner experiences with someone can often feel frightening, which is exactly why I place such an importance on connection and acceptance in the therapeutic process. I aim to create a safe environment that will invite my clients to delve deeper into their personal narrative, as I truly believe we are not built to process emotions alone. As humans, we all have a propensity to grow and become our true selves, unfortunately we aren’t always gifted with the circumstances to allow it. I am passionate about creating a space for not only self-discovery and self acceptance, but to allow clients to feel seen, heard, and valued.

Neurofeedback is able to help children, teenagers, and adults who have experienced Trauma, Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), ADHD and Anxiety disorders as well as a variety of other mental health symptoms. Neurofeedback, also called EEG Biofeedback or brain training, helps train your brain to self-regulate and correct issues that impact your optimal functioning. A self-regulated brain improves the functioning of the central nervous system, mental performance, emotional regulation, and physiological stability. A dysregulated brain has difficulty calming down at appropriate moments, adding physiological symptoms.

My practice is primarily devoted to working with young women and trauma victims. However, I see others also. Therapy can help us express our feelings, learn new skills, and help us find effective solutions to issues we face. In a confidential environment, I strive to create an atmosphere that is safe, nurturing and supportive. My work with young women is focused on supporting them on their journey through adolescents into womanhood, which is a road well-traveled, but not always gracefully. I am well trained in helping young women experiencing difficulties in their school, family and/or social lives.

Often times, I’ve noticed that people seeking therapy already intuitively know what they want, or even what their potential solutions may be – before stepping foot inside my office. What they may lack is the support towards making those desires a reality. That’s why my therapeutic approach is collaborative and centered around strengthening your voice and choice in your life. I won’t stand in front of you to pull you in this direction, or behind you, to push you in another; but rather you can find me walking beside you serving as your rock and partner in healing.

Does life feel far away or like you're walking through a fog? Do thought spirals feel productive but leave you anxious? As a trauma specialist, I aim to remember the beauty that can come after ugly things happen. I believe in post-traumatic growth, a term meaning that, not only was a person resilient in their ability to heal from an adversity, but that they were actually able to benefit from an adverse event by growing their psychological capacity to empathize, reframe and thrive after trauma. I work with people who are navigating sexual trauma, self-empowerment, anxiety/panic and intercultural identities.
