Are you struggling with anxiety and unexplained sadness? Motivation seems like a luxury. Perhaps you feel helpless and caught up in the smallest worries. Maybe you and your child have a hard time communicating with each other. You may also wonder how to improve your relationship with your loved ones. You’ve read all the self-help books but still struggle to help yourself and your family.
I believe that, with sufficient support and empathy, you can discover your true potential and resilience. Therapy is a journey of self-discovery that could help you better cope with life’s endless challenges. Together, we can get to know who you are and what you truly desire. With your permission, I am honored to listen, support, and learn as you discover your inner superhero.
I have found nothing in this world more fulfilling than helping children, teens, and adults suffering from anxiety, depression, and trauma. When working with children and teens I make sure to include you, the parents, in the process. I want to ensure you have the tools and support to guide you through and grow. With me, you won’t be on this journey alone, we will be working together to support you and your family not only get through these difficult times but thrive.
My Therapy Specialties Include:
In therapy, I utilize interventions and theoretical orientations according to my clients’ needs. I believe that a strong therapeutic relationship based on trust and compassion is essential to helping clients through their journey. I incorporate cognitive behavioral therapy, relational and family systems in the work that I do. However, most importantly, I connect with you and your story. In therapy, I am genuine, compassionate, and nonjudgmental. I truly believe that you are capable of succeeding in any circumstances. In a trusting, loving therapeutic relationship, let’s create sustainable, meaningful change together.
During our work together, you will find me a real person and partner. In my sessions, you will be in charge of the course and I will guide you through. I am authentic and empathetic, and my compassion is unconditional. Your sense of safety and trust will be my greatest goal as a therapist.
