My Approach to Helping
Do you want to live with more ease, joy, passion and purpose? Do family or work conflicts hinder you from living optimally? Are you troubled by anxiety,depression,obsessions, addictions or the stress of daily life?
The therapy process is designed to facilitate change and release one from pain and suffering. It is a collaborative process where we together address your concerns and navigate your journey from crisis to wellness.
My approach is integrative, drawing from Western psychology as well as Eastern meditative and mindfulness practices. My orientation is solution focused. My practice is culturally and ethnically diverse and includes individuals, couples,families and groups.
I believe in the resilience of the human spirit. Those who seek to understand themselves are already half way there. I enjoin with you on your process of knowing and being your best self and make my self available to help you achieve these goals.

How Psychotherapy Can Help
Feeling "understood" by another is essential to develop one's potential emotionally and psychologically. Many did not have that experience during ones early development. It is the goal in therapy to deeply understand ones clients in a way that they may have not felt understood before. In addition , it is essential to communicate that understanding in such a way that the client has the experience of "being understood"
What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist
I am forever in awe of the human spirit. I am humbled by the hopefulness, the resilience and the desire for change people share with me. I am active and collaborative in the work and am eclectic in my approach.
