About Me & My Practice

You are one step closer to a new you, to feeling empowered, to walking on a positive path to growth and well-being.

We’ll work together to unearth ingrained behavior patterns and beliefs that hold you back from achieving your goals. We’ll identify the obstacles that get in your way of living life to its fullest. We cannot stop bad things from happening or change the past, but we can better understand how to cope.

Many issues come down to experiencing grief and loss - whether it's loss of job security, loss of a friendship/relationship, your health, or actual death. I work with you to integrate these experiences into your life so you don’t stay stuck.

I help you to identify what does work, what's not working and what keeps you from doing what works. I help you to discover new coping tools that you can take with you and use for new challenges that you face.

I use the following therapeutic approaches:
-Cognitive Behavioral
-Experiential
-Imagery
-Positive Psychology
-Thought Field Therapy

My specialties include:
-Grief and Loss/Bereavement
-Depression and Anxiety
-Stress Reduction

Your religious/spiritual beliefs and cultural customs are respected and incorporated in your sessions as they relate to how you interact with your environment and others.

If you're looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or you're just ready to move in a new direction in your life, I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals.

I also have experience working with those who have experienced trauma, depression, anxiety, acculturation challenges, stress management and health care concerns. I have extensive experience working with teens and adults.
