It’s been found that the most important factor for creating change in therapy is the therapeutic relationship. I offer a safe, non-judgmental space to process emotions and transmute pain into growth. I consider all aspects of an individual and implement a bio-psycho-social-spiritual , culturally-sensitive and client-centered approach with individuals, couples, families and groups. I’ve used various research-based modalities including CBT, EFT, Motivational Interviewing, EMDR, and art therapy.

I believe we build barriers as an attempt to protect ourselves from childhood and adult relational traumas however, these mind and body defenses are no longer necessary and block us from what we truly want in life; inadvertently causing more suffering than protection. The symptoms of these barriers manifest as depression, anxiety, addiction ,,, as well as physical illness.
