About

As you are in the process of looking for a therapist, you may already be half-way through resolving your issues. It is said that client's readiness and willingness to make changes is the strongest indicator of successful therapy outcome. As a therapist, I will accompany you in the journey of actualizing your fullest potential by assisting you to develop internal and external resources such as the sense of freedom, choices, healthy sense of self, responsibility, managing life balance, and strong support systems and relationships.
I work with individuals and couples over 25 to help them with variety of issues including anxiety and stress, relationship, grief and loss, cultural adjustment, parenting, careers, and spiritual growth. I am experienced in treating mood disorders (depression, bipolar disorder), and anxiety disorders including GAD, OCD and PTSD.
Depending on the client's presenting issues and specific goals to achieve, I apply the combination of different therapeutic approaches, including modern psychodynamic, mindfulness skills, DBT, EMDR, cognitive-behavioral, existential, and body centered approaches. I teach clients specific skills such as stress management, anger management, assertive communication skills, and coping with physical illnesses and pains.
