Reflect on the world that you carry within yourself.
And name this thinking what you wish...
Your innermost happening is worth all your love.

Rainer Maria Rilke

I provide therapy to individuals, couples and families. I guide my clients work through a variety of issues such as depression, anxiety, trauma, self-esteem, relationship challenges, family conflict and life transitions. I believe self-awareness contributes to change and improvement; therefore, my therapeutic approach focuses on developing a deeper understanding of the inner self. I help my clients build bridges to their inner child in order to work through and remove internalized barriers. Healthy and meaningful interpersonal relationships determine the quality of one’s life which is why in my practice I assist clients identify toxic interactions and implement firm boundaries. My clinical style is holistic and tailored to my clients’ needs. I incorporate client centered, humanistic and psychoanalytic tools. I also place strong emphasis on CBT and DBT models and integrate elements from both modalities. Cultural and spiritual aspects of my clients’ lives are important considerations in my treatment plan. I am trained and pursuing certification in Relational Life Therapy. RLT helps couples identify dysfunctional patterns, equips them with skills to repair conflict and encourages honest expression. The aim of RLT is to develop awareness of the role that each partner plays in the couple dynamic and to achieve a sense of balance and harmony. RLT incorporates inner child work and addresses family of origin issues to build awareness of maladaptive patterns of behavior and communication triggered by unresolved childhood trauma. I am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy.
