It is frustrating to have tried everything, yet continue to feel sad, hopeless, stuck in the past, and worrying constantly about the future, yourself, and your relationships. Living with chronic illness such as depression, anxiety, emotional trauma, heart disease, cancer, diabetes, obesity, or chronic pain can make you feel that way, affecting your quality of life and that of your loved ones. Imagine though a life devoid of worry and pain where you get a boost of energy, quiet negative self-talk, feel less self-conscious around people, regain hope and pleasure in doing things you used to enjoy, and accomplish meaningful life goals.

Given my background in medicine and psychology, I am the best therapist to help you understand how biological, psychological, and social factors bear consequences on your ability to either manage, prevent, or decrease the impact of chronic illness on your life. Properly addressing vulnerabilities, strengths, and personal resources is key to your wellness.

Employing a person-centered approach and complementary evidence-based practices for an individualized journey, I can help you heal and further nourish the seeds of the life that you deserve by putting in your hands a tool box for you to use in times of stress and by enlisting all the support that you need to achieve health and emotional wellness.
