I believe in walking with individuals through their life experiences in a non-judgmental manner. I believe people are not a product of life circumstances; therefore, they do not need to live self-punishingly. I believe individuals have the ability to process past traumas and issues, resulting in a more fulfilling life. Gaining personal insight and personal growth is a strength that will manifest and multiply in relationships. Working with people is my passion; I believe your past does not define your future.

Life's complexities often bring us to moments of doubt, overwhelming emotions, and feelings of incompleteness. Everyone, at some point in their lives, faces challenges with their emotions or mental health. It's part of the human experience. I offer a safe and non-judgmental place for individuals who struggle with depression, anxiety, and stress; for couples and families with communication issues or conflicts. My goal as a therapist is to support individuals, couples, or families to address and overcome emotional well-being and rebuild damaged attachment bonds.

To me, psychotherapy isn't about being SICK; it's about being BETTER. It's about getting out of your own way. It's about not taking responsibility for things you can't control, and about owning your own thoughts and feelings. It's about being able to tell the difference between logical thoughts and irrational feelings. Therapy offers no guarantees, but offers an opportunity to understand and be understood.

I customize my client's treatment plan so that each individual can receive the maximum benefit from therapy. This might include some or all of the following: cognitive therapy, family counseling, art therapy, various types of meditation, and/or Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR). EMDR is a therapeutic method that enables patients to reprocess and overcome significant trauma in the safety of the therapist's office. Many people begin to experience significant relief from past trauma after several EMDR sessions.

Mental health is an important part of our well-being, and yet often times gets pushed aside or ignored because we feel like we can get through it on our own; are too embarrassed or ashamed to talk about it; or don’t think anyone would understand. Recognizing that you need support and searching for help are the first important steps in your journey to well-being. My intent is to help you grow from your struggles, heal from your pain and work toward your goals.

Therapy will provide you with the space and safety to talk about your inner life as well as to identify habits as areas of behavior for change. I welcome clients from diverse backgrounds as being bilingual and bi-cultural I relate well to diverse experiences and life transitions. My approach to therapy is based mainly on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Existential Psychotherapy. The goal of cognitive behavior therapy is to teach individuals that while they cannot control every aspect of the world around them, they can take control of how they interpret and deal with positive and negative situations in their environment.

Are you having challenges in your relationships? Are you feeling unfulfilled at work or home? How we relate to others can have tremendous impact on our quality of life. Many times, working on ourselves from within translates to more fulfilling relationships with those around us.

I believe the main goal of therapy is to remove the obstacles and blockages that preclude us from being genuine. My approach is straightforward yet compassionate. As your therapist, I simply hold the mirror up and allow you to reveal the parts of yourself that have broken off over the years as a result of stress, trauma, depression, anxiety, and other unresolved issues. Together we mitigate the impact of maladaptive behaviors and search for answers that are more closely aligned with your goals. The answers to many of life’s problems are internal, but we have been conditioned otherwise.
