About

We are living in very uncertain times. It is important to recognize now more than ever that we possess the innate ability for inner peace and calm even in the face of fearing the unknown. Psychotherapy is an exploration of what is blocking people from fully realizing their fullest potential, genuine happiness and fulfillment. Anxiety, depression and other "mental health issues" are often rooted in a deeper desire to be understood, to be seen, and to accomplish one's life purpose. A strong psychotherapeutic alliance can help to unlock our innate gifts and natural abilities that are hidden beneath our fears and limiting beliefs.
So often we default to the autopilot of negative fight-or-flight thinking. I teach clients how to "choose" positive mood states. I use a holistic perspective that recognizes that the mind, body, and spirit are all connected and how that directly relates to changing one’s reality, allowing for emotional healing and personal empowerment.
Using Mindfulness, Existential-Humanistic, Integrative-Experiential, and Trauma-Focused therapies. I help people clear blind-spots and break unhealthy habits to become all they were born to be. The right therapist "fit" is of utmost importance to hold a safe space for you on your healing journey and so, I offer a free initial consultation.
