I love the work I do as a psychotherapist. I see myself as a healer and guide. With you as my client, we navigate the challenges and perhaps, traumas of your past. Being guided through the changes you want to make, I offer empathy and compassion, knowing that self-exploration that leads to desired change can be a challenge, and sometimes the challenge becomes too great to want to continue. It is a given that I listen with in the moment “presence”, and I believe that this “presence” is the key to healing and growth. I welcome the opportunity to work with you as your guide and co-healer on your path of growth, healing and change.

In my work with children and teenagers, I see behavior as having meaning. Difficult behaviors such as defiance, tantrums, aggression, and isolation are often the youth’s maladaptive attempts at communicating emotions. I see my role as a facilitator of effective communication, collaborating with youth to understand their experiences and identify/verbalize their thoughts and feelings. With a decade of working with kids in a variety of settings, I work primarily from a relational and attachment-based foundation, which utilizes compassion, attunement, and co-regulation to promote wellbeing through enhanced relationships and self-worth.

I am here to help my clients live their truth and become comfortable with who they are. I will bring my authentic self to sessions as well, which I would describe as warm, thoughtful, friendly, and casual. I utilize an eclectic approach which includes psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral, mindfulness, trauma-focused, and strength-based. Our past can shape us, but it doesn’t have to define who we are. I help my clients process past experiences that make them feel “stuck” in order to start moving forward.

Experiencing anxiety tends to overwhelm our minds with racing thoughts and the inability to make the right decisions. Certain life events increase the intensity of anxious feelings, such as public speaking or being in crowded places, and it is at those times that we need useful tools to manage that stress. Avoiding anxiety is not the answer. Learning how to manage it and process it is the key. We don't have to wait until our anxiety shoots up, we could focus on working on the roots of it, and manage it before it overwhelms us. The goal of living an emotionally healthy life is within your reach, and my energy psychology can help.

In Network with OPTUM, Oscar, CIGNA, United Behavioral Health. ~ When someone is in conflict, some common false beliefs that may be getting in the way is the belief that my feelings, my worth, and my value come from outside of me, therefore someone else should take care of me. As a result are power struggles in which each person tries to control the other. The way out is to change the system by changing those beliefs. It is only when love becomes appreciation instead of dependence on the other person that this will happen.
