Being able to understand and name one's struggle is a big part of the progress, so, let's work together in an attempt to go beyond the symptoms, let's work on addressing the root of the problem and look for ways out. It might not be the easiest path out there and yet often it's the only way to freedom/healing. I service those struggling with anxiety, panic attacks, depression, self-esteem/insecurities, addictions, conflict, relationships, etc. I work with parents struggling to manage their child's behavior . If you feel like you hit the rock bottom, your child is out of control and you don't know where to start, I am here to help!

We all struggle with life challenges, and it is never too late to make positive changes. I believe in creating a therapeutic environment, which is essential for an individual to be able to express their concerns without judgement. This allows the individual the opportunity to come to an inviting place where one can speak openly and freely about concerns and/or struggles. As a therapist, I assist clients with developing their individualized goals and offer tools that can be implemented in their lives. My goal is to offer guidance and support, so clients can take steps to become the heathiest version of themselves.

I enjoy working with children and adults to help them find grounded ways of being with and moving through the struggles they face. I believe that strong relationships, with the self, the body, and with others, are central to a healthy lifestyle. Painful life experiences, transitions, trauma, anxiety, and depression are opportunities for growth, and helping people move through these challenges is incredibly rewarding. I love working with people of diverse sociocultural backgrounds and exploring how culture shapes experience. A deep understanding of development allows me to connect with people of all ages and help them move through difficult stages.
