I pride myself on being more than just someone to listen, but someone to help you look at things a different way.
It all starts with building a therapeutic relationship that creates space for you to be open and honest, not just with me, but also with yourself. From there we collaborate and decide on the path that leads to your mental and emotional health. You’re taking the first steps on a journey, but you’re not taking them alone. Whatever obstacles and struggles someone may be going through in life, I consider it a privilege to help them. With my years of experience and advanced trainings in cutting edge, evidence-based practices, I am well equipped to guide patients toward healing and recovery.
As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I take a Systems approach to therapy by looking at the whole person in the context of their relationships to family, society, and culture. I create an environment of compassion, free from judgement. Therapy is not one size fits all, it must be tailored to fit the individual or couple. Together we’ll work to uncover and better understand life’s challenges, begin identifying and practicing things that will increase your sense of wellbeing, and resolve the core issues that drive the current symptoms.
Individual and Couple Therapy are available.
