About

"Only when we are brave enough to explore darkness will we discover infinite power of our light - B.B". Through a healthier understanding of our patterns and past we will gain the ultimate goal of therapy: unconditional self-acceptance. I create a safe and respectful space for us to explore ways to reduce your suffering, while creating alignment and joy in yourself and your relationships. I continue to be inspired by the work and the progress I see my clients make every day. My goal is to empower my clients and provide them with the support and tools they need to move forward, feeling more insightful, intentional, and fulfilled.
I have worked extensively in all aspects of mental and emotional challenges with a specialty in life’s most profound loss: death and dying. I practice therapy with an eclectic approach having a strong psychodynamic foundation. One word to describe my strength and style, would be compassionate. I believe we must water the roots to feed the leaves.
It is a brave and daunting step starting psychotherapy to better understand oneself. It takes great courage and strength to get the support you need and deserve. No matter how dark it seems, there is light to be found. It's not always about where, but how that matters. The fact that you are reading these words says that you are ready to begin. I am here.
