I believe in a holistic approach with an appreciation that the mind, body, brain and spirit are intimately intertwined and impacted by one another. Therefore, I focus as much on client’s strengths as I do on their challenges. My approach is primarily psychodynamic, helping clients bring unconscious thoughts and behaviors to the conscious, helping clients shift to more effective and fulfilling patterns of functioning.

There are many reasons why we seek out therapy. Perhaps we're feeling emotionally distressed, or maybe we're having difficulty functioning like we used to in certain aspects of our lives. Whatever the reason, we each have the capacity to heal and grow to our fullest potential. With the right therapist, psychotherapy can be a life-altering experience. I firmly believe that the most positive therapeutic outcomes are born of strong therapeutic relationships. Nonetheless, once trust and rapport are established, it is equally important for the therapist to have strong clinical knowledge and a specific plan to help each individual client.

Life is sometimes a difficult process especially when a partner or child needs, but doesn't want therapy. It can become very painful for yourself or the loved one whose behavior is affecting the whole family. You may even be combing these ads trying to sort out where to start. Sometimes you need someone who knows how to allow a person to open up in their own time. Someone who can work with them through their fears. I have experience in: Child Therapy, Addressing resistance, Mandated clients and LGBTQ concerns. I utilize a variety of techniques toward this aim including EMDR and Play (Sandtray) therapy.

How long have you been wanting help? There's nothing better than waking up happy every day, in a life full of precious moments & meaningful relationships. We both know that it’s not always like that, not everybody has that kind of life. Maybe you don’t have that kind of life now, but you want to. You’ve probably noticed that you have some patterns that you keep repeating, no matter how hard you try not to, you may have relationship trouble, trauma, disordered eating. Together we’ll look at the negative patterns & beliefs keeping you stuck. Life can be messy, it can be really hard but you do not have to do it alone. I can help.

I elicit hope when the world seems hopeless. My approach is to develop a therapeutic relationship where authenticity is encouraged in a compassionate, judgement free space. Majority of the children I work with simply want to just be kids, but there is a concern or barrier that needs to be addressed or removed first. Majority of the youth I work with are trying to figure out their purpose and how to focus on the future. The families I work with want to reduce stress and be cohesive. The couples I work with want to be unified and feel like they are together in their relationship. The adults want to be happy and content.
