The core of my therapeutic philosophy embodies the key concepts of good mental health (courage, integrity, tenacity, inspiration and awareness). I integrate complimentary approaches of psychotherapy, incorporating a variety of methodologies and techniques that are designed to help you address life challenges and improve quality of life. It is my belief that through awareness, acceptance and change, we can find ourselves experiencing happiness, compassion, and wisdom. With sensitivity and compassion, I will work to help you build on your strengths to identify and achieve life goals.
