I will meet you where you are in a non-judgmental and empathic perspective creating a safe space for meaningful change to occur. Utilizing my authentic self to create a collaborative environment that highlights your strengths to promote your desired change and outcome.

We all come to therapy in our own way. Often because we've lost our way. Maybe there’s a current crisis or ongoing feelings of dissatisfaction, anger that gets the better of you, sadness that won’t go away or confusion about where you’re going. Whatever your reason, you know you want something different - greater spontaneity, deeper connections, more intimacy...with yourself and others. Together, we’ll explore where you come from, examine where you are and expand where you want to go.

There’s a reason why you’re here, now, searching for something. Maybe you’re looking for answers, or maybe there’s a sense that for whatever reason life has become unmanageable. As your therapist, I will accompany you as we work collaboratively to identify and achieve your goals. I believe that within each of us lives an innate drive towards wholeness and transformation. Through cultivating greater self-awareness and acceptance, we can make sense of the patterns/behaviors we want to change in order to live life more fully and authentically.

Welcome to my practice. If we worked together, you could bring me your doubts, pains and fears. We could look into your problem behaviors and beliefs to see more clearly what drives them and what other choices you might have. We would get to know your strengths and use them. We would investigate how painful past experiences including trauma might still be affecting your reactions and choices, and try to reduce their impact. As a therapist, I am an active listener, often asking clarifying questions and inviting reflection. This exchange builds mindfulness, which I believe is essential to health.

The foundation of my therapeutic approach is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy but I also incorporate other methodologies to meet the needs of each unique individual. My approach as a therapist is flexible because I understand the importance of your individuality. My goal is for my clients to feel safe and comfortable when they start therapy whether it be their first time or they have had past experiences. My style is to be interactive and engage with my clients while providing an environment that is safe, non-judgmental and supportive. I sometimes use worksheets, recommend books and phone apps to support the work we do together.

Despite the fact that we are adults, we all have an inner child inside us. Inner child governs our relationships, satisfaction of life. Abusive parents can wound inner child. Typical sighs of this : Problems with romantic intimate relationships and friendships (dependency ,or isolation), trust issues. Self-abuse and low self esteem provoke inability to appreciate one's worthiness. The talents will continue to be undermined. Distorted body image. Psychosomatic problems, overweight, inability to fulfill the needs. Lacking confidence, fear of being hurt interrupt motivation to find a stable and loving relationships People tend to unwittingly replicate the abusive early experience
