" I consider clients as equal participants in therapy sessions. I prefer to think of “the client” as “the initiator” and more importantly, as “the expert” in their own process. My role is “the reflector” of your unfolding process. I believe that each of us inherently has the ability to transform, and that this transformation can happen rapidly. My role as your reflector is to help you access your own inner healer. I do so with loving kindness and an emphasis on present-moment awareness. Together, we create a container where you can feel safe to access and express whatever wants to come forth. The work you do to heal – we do together!"

"Therapy is about how you can feel better, how to make your life rich and satisfying. What is in your way? What stops you from being the person you want to be, from living the life you want to live? I see people of all ages, in all walks of life and help them overcome obstacles to acheiving their goals. Often it is inner blocks like anxiety and depression, that stand in your way. Other times there are experiences you've had that make it hard to feel free. Therapy can help you sort it all out, and take positive steps towards a new start."

"Are you struggling with sexuality-related issues? Access to sexual health is a right. This includes expression of sexuality that is safe, free of judgment and shame, and centers pleasure. As queer folx, or queer folx of color, we've been told that our sexuality is wrong in so many ways. While the experience of marginalization is traumatic, we also have so much beautiful resiliency and abundant inner resourcefulness to counter that.

Emotionally Focused Therapists
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is an approach to therapy that helps clients identify their emotions, learn to explore and experience them, to understand them and then to manage them. 94147 Emotionally Focused Therapy embraces the idea that emotions can be changed, first by arriving at or 'living' the maladaptive emotion (e.g. loss, fear or shame) in session, and then learning to transform it. Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples seeks to break the negative emotion cycles within relationships, emphasizing the importance of the attachment bond between couples, and how nurturing of the attachment bonds and an empathetic understanding of each others emotions can break the cycles.
