Imaging how you would feel and act when you have a better and more stable mood, greater relationships, more self-acceptance and esteem, more freedom (from regrets, past, etc), and a healthier mind ... You just took the first step to change! I will help you gain the skills and knowledge in taking the next steps, making progresses, and achieving your goals - in a respectful, direct, no-nonsense, non-judgmental, sincere, and supportive way. This process may be challenging (as it should be), but I've helped created and witnessed numerous victorious smiles -- and, you will create yours.

I work with individuals, couples and families experiencing any relationship issues, grief & loss, as well as clients struggling with low self esteem , trauma, anxiety and depression.
Congratulations on taking the courageous step to begin therapy. As we all know, life can be challenging and demanding at times. This may lead us to feeling sad, angry, hopeless or confused. We may feel stuck and not know how to move forward; which can be a very lonely and scary place to be as well. However, you are not alone and healing is possible! My role as a therapist is to provide a safe place and offer warmth and empathy throughout this collaborative process, in order to help you in exploring your thoughts and feelings, as well as guide you in developing insight and identifying skills to achieve the thriving life you deserve.

I incorporate an open-minded approach when working with couples, parents and children's relationship issues, low self esteem , anxiety and depression.
My focus is on easing your stress, worries, and challenges that you are facing. Together we will work on finding better ways to communicate at home and at work. I am offering tele-therapy through video and/or phone to all who want to be seen.I enjoy working with couples and individuals. When dealing with negative thoughts, I work on finding more coping thoughts, while using different approaches, such as CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy), DBT (dialectical behavioral therapy), and family systems. With couples I often use EFT (emotional focus therapy). My therapy style is nurturing and empowering. Your happiness is my first priority!

Currently accepting new clients! Sometimes life in general can feel overwhelming. This feeling can intensify if you also struggle with unprocessed trauma and/or feelings of low self-worth. My clients have either had a chaotic childhood or a single traumatic experience that has led to self-consciousness, self-sabotage or simply difficulty handling stress. They have so much compassion for others, yet struggle to turn it inward. Their coping strategies "make sense" but they struggle to believe in their own worth. The individuals I work with are hoping to find peace, stability and increased self-esteem.

Got Anxiety? What would it be like if those negative thoughts and feelings subsided and left you feeling more peaceful and calm? Move through life with greater ease and confidence. Reduce the effects of past traumatic experiences, tone down that negative self-talk, and replace those negative mind movies with more optimistic thoughts - naturally. Reduce the effects of inner conflicts that have prevented you from getting your goals - whether you are aware of them or not. Chances are you have tried other modalities and used some tools and they only worked for a short period of time. Make a long-term change by re-programming your mind.

Does life feel way too hard right now? At times, our self-esteem can feel like it is in the trash. We can struggle to find meaning and a sense of direction in life. Our challenges can be pools of resources to learn and grow by. It's possible to cut out the unnecessary suffering and have more time and energy for what we want in life, by regulating our emotions and defining our values. Through art and talk therapy, you can learn to understand and appreciate yourself more, and adjust your attitudes and actions to be most useful for you.

Sometimes everything looks great in our lives, but something feels "wrong" and we don't know why. Other times, life might take unexpected turns and we hit "rough patches" with co-workers, friends, family, partners - maybe even finding difficulties within ourselves. While we've held everything together pretty well, maybe we're thinking we could use some help. Knowing we could use help and asking for help are signs of amazing insight and strength. Therapists may be able to offer the help you're looking for - in an accepting, compassionate space that allows an opportunity to explore what's going on and realize your best hopes.

Hi! If I have learned one thing in life it's that change is difficult, particularly without help. I offer the opportunity to work collaboratively through what's keeping you from living the life you always thought you would have. Therapy can help one let go of patterns and beliefs, often subconscious, that aren't working. And changing our assumptions about the world and improving our relationships can result in profoundly positive changes and a life worth embracing! I look forward to helping you realize those changes.

My commitment to you is to create a setting that helps you share yourself with someone who initially you don't know - but will come to know. I want to help you feel safe and comfortable enough to speak about your concerns. In addition, we will address your issues with the objective of getting to the source of the problem so that you can feel more long-term relief.

Self Esteem Therapists
Self-esteem lives on a spectrum: Not enough self-regard (or low self esteem) can lead people to become depressed, or to tolerate abusive situations and relationships. Too much self-love (or high self-esteem), results in an off-putting sense of entitlement and an inability to learn from failure. And it's occasionally a sign of clinical narcissism. Quite the opposite of being shy or shyness, yet still on the same spectrum.
