As a Registered Associate Marriage and Family Therapist, I am eager to help you navigate through some of life’s obstacles. I currently work with individuals from various cultures battling stress, anxiety, depression, and/or grief. As a certified bereavement counselor, I hold great pride in supporting individuals when they are at their most vulnerable state. Throughout my academic career, I have conducted research on cultural influences affecting narrative of autobiographies. I strongly believe culture has a great influence on our values and stressors. We will work together to deconstruct culture and societal discourses.

I believe that we all have the resources within us to heal, and yet sometimes we need a little help. The right connection between a therapist/client can help start that healing. Maybe your teenager is sullen and isolated. Maybe you are in love and scared to be truly seen by another. Maybe there’s an angry side of you that your family doesn’t understand and a vulnerable side that is too scary to feel. Together we can work on acceptance, healthy coping skills, and letting go of bad habits. Without judgment, we will build an understanding of who you are as a person so as to realize your strengths and fortify them.

I specialize in trauma, anxiety, chronic pain and relationship difficulties. As a somatic therapist certified in EMDR I work with the body-mind connection. I have found this to be more effective with quicker results than traditional talk therapy. EMDR has an effect on the way the brain process information, which helps a memory become just a memory and not something that effects us viscerally. The combination of tuning into the body (with somatic techniques) while using EMDR bi-lateral simulation releases emotions that have been trapped in the body. By doing this many symptoms of anxiety, depression and chronic pain are relieved.

Life is a journey that should enhance who we are and should help us grow personally and professionally. I truly believe that events in life ‘‘happen for you, not to you.’’ When we adapt that mentality, we are able to utilize the obstacle in our lives as opportunities to grow and enhance our existence. In treatment I help my clients process past events that occurred in their lives in order for them to understand how those events affected their lives and shaped their existence. I helped my clients understand any unconscious defense mechanisms they are engaging that could be bringing harm to their lives. I am EMDR trained as well.

In all phases of life, we face constant change and unexpected circumstances. Even for those who are strongly independent and resilient, life can be overwhelming at times. Therapy can be a space to explore the parts of life that feel uncertain and unmanageable, and identify where you want to go from here. Building the foundation for growth in therapy starts by creating a safe, genuine space where people can feel heard, understood, and valued for the person they are. I believe that people can foster long-term growth through understanding their journey, connecting with their true emotions, and empowering choice with authenticity.

There are some advantages in the form of convenience, lack of travel and being in comfort of your own home. Set against those, professionals find it more difficult to read non-verbal signals of their clients, and you may find you yourself can be more easily distracted.
