"It is my belief that therapy should revolve around the individual and be adapted to meet that individual's specific needs and concerns. Mental illness and behavioral health issues present differently in every individual which is why I focus on treating each person's specific needs. My experience spans vastly, from crisis work to therapy in numerous settings including, hospitals, communities, private practices and schools. Prior to completing my Masters in the US I studied in Italy which allowed me to view mental health in a different light and learn approaches to treatment such as water and music therapy."

"We rarely can overcome all of life's challenges on our own, yet reaching out to others for help is often difficult. I recognize this fact as I seek to work collaboratively in helping you bring about the changes you want to see in your life. Therapy can be of enormous value in decreasing distress, more effectively managing emotions, better understanding the causes of your unhappiness, cultivating closer and more fulfilling relationships, overcoming patterns that repeatedly get in your way, and improving your ability to build a happier and more meaningful life."
