About

My clients describe me as someone they feel safe and comfortable with, someone they feel they can trust, and someone that genuinely cares for them. Many of my clients have unhealed childhood wounds, and/or struggle with anxiety, depression or interpersonal relationship issues. Some of my clients describe themselves as perfectionists or high achievers; others struggle with setting healthy boundaries. It is my passion to help my clients figure out why they feel or react the way they do so that they can feel "good enough" about themselves on the inside and build healthier relationship with others.
My approach is straight-forward, collaborative and compassionate. My work focuses on helping clients improve their relationship with their own emotions and inner self. Working on our inner self can feel uncomfortable emotionally, but it has been proven by research to bring long-term inner peace and healing. You are not alone; I am in this journey with you.
Based on clients' individual needs, I use a combination of evidence-based therapy approaches to help clients reach their goals. I am a certified EMDR therapist, and am also trained in IFS Level 1, ERP, Clinical Hypnosis, etc. I currently see clients from 9am to 4pm, Mondays to Thursdays. For inquiries, please feel free to call or email me at any time.
