    Start Now

    I firmly believe that individuals possess an innate wisdom about their wants and needs. However, life’s challenges can sometimes hinder us from fully embracing our desires. As your therapist, my role is to provide unwavering support as you navigate the complexities of life, while guiding you toward embracing your authentic self.

    A Holistic Approach for all ages

    I am deeply committed to exploring every aspect of your life’s journey. As your therapist, I will be there to listen, support, and validate your experiences. My approach is designed to meet your unique needs, incorporating integrative modalities that consider the intricate mind-body-spirit connection. We’ll collaboratively explore how your individual experience of the world can unlock your inner knowing.

    Therapy Support for Teens

    My therapeutic approach with teenagers recognizes the intricate challenges of this trans-formative phase of life. Emphasizing self-expression and connection, I provide an environment for teenagers to freely explore their thoughts, feelings, and aspirations, respecting their individuality. This journey often involves creative expression, conversations, and activities that encourage identity development and awareness.

    Therapy Support for Children

    My therapeutic approach with children centers on child-centered play therapy, where I firmly believe in the trans-formative power of play. Through a variety of play therapy techniques, I actively engage with your child, allowing them to explore and process their emotions, thoughts, and experiences at their own comfortable pace.  Their play serves as a gateway to their inner world, enabling me to better understand their perspective and connect with their feelings and needs. The insights I gain from child sessions are translated for caregivers during their own parent sessions. These parent sessions allow space to process and gain valuable insights about their relationship with their child.
