It can be overwhelming to begin the process of therapy and takes courage to make that first contact. OFFERING VIDEO SESSIONS BECAUSE OF COVID 19. As your therapist I will engage you in becoming comfortable exploring your inner self and learning where do you get stuck and what increases your satisfaction in life. Using a compassionate and collaborative approach, we will develop a plan that addresses your issues. You will learn to look in the mirror and not the magnifying glass to improve both your self image and relationships with others. You will also learn how to set boundaries; this reduces anger and increases self esteem.

"I can be changed by what happens to me, but I refuse to be reduced by it."- Maya Angelou. Often when being faced with the choice to seek help, sometimes there is embarrassment of needing that help. I offer therapy that is open, honest and no matter what has happened, the choice to change is your greatest accomplishment. The past can strengthen us with its lessons, but it's a crime when it destroys our beautiful souls under its shame. I specialize in Eating Disorders, PTSD, Trauma and Children.

“You either walk inside your story and own it or you stand outside your story and hustle for your worthiness," Brene Brown. Negative beliefs and narratives, often stemming from early conditioning, trap us in a habitual pattern of self-defeating thoughts, feelings and behaviors. We see ourselves and others through these lenses. We develop protective armoring to get on with living and can be highly successful in all the external measures. Yet privately we can get down on ourselves. We all need a safe, compassionate space where we can touch into core beliefs and feelings and let go of what doesn't serve to make room for what does.
