"I went into the field of psychology because I love helping people transform to the best version of themselves. We all need a safe place to understand ourselves and how we relate to others. I often say "We need to be Mindful of our Total-Well Being and that our minds and our bodies are an inter-connected systems. Where the mind goes, so does the man or woman in their actions and body states. We go to the physician for our physical health, so how much healthier would we be if we went to our psychologist for our mental health?""

"Do you survive or thrive? Our most important relationship is with ourself, which is reflected in our relationships with our closest family members, friends, colleagues, and professional lives. Caring for our own well-being is a must, if our other relationships are to thrive. Careful listening to each person's story is necessary, to understand which relational patterns prevent one from living most fully. Are your relational methods used to gain closeness/connection ending in hurt/distance instead? Tina can help you learn to listen to yourself, in an open-minded, curious style, in order to learn how to solve your dilemmas."

"Hello, If you find yourself suddenly avoiding fun activities, struggling with frequent worry, have sleep problems, difficulty with addiction, cognitive delay, memory recall difficulties or even undiagnosed physical aliments, you may actually be struggling with a mental health condition. Many people are unaware that mental health, addiction and even concussions or traumatic brain injuries can cause a variety of everyday symptoms that are often ignored. The truth is that these are just a small fraction of common symptoms which could be related to mental health problems. Contacting a therapist or counselor might be the next step toward feeling healthy again."

Some have been hurt deeply by a breach of trust while others are dealing with devastating adult or childhood trauma. I am qualified, through training and professional background, to help clients find a path to recovery. Clients will learn how to manage their anxiety, depression, grief, fear and traumatic memories."

Have you logically been able to recognize the desire to change your circumstances, but somehow you find yourself in the very same predicament you attempted to avoid? Unresolved conflicts in the past can often cause distress in the present without you being consciously aware of it. By primarily utilizing a psychodynamic treatment approach, I help individuals identify and connect their thoughts, feelings, and dreams to promote a lasting change in their lives."
