I am an integrative, interactive and strengths-based psychotherapist who has been offering counseling services to families, parents, children and teens since 1998. As a therapist, I work to help people acquire an understanding of their relationships, better their communication, as well as learn mindful relaxation and awareness, to grasp and better regulate emotions, identify their needs and increase work performance.

My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy

Therapy offers a safe environment for self-expression and healing, and provides a perfect venue for gaining emotional skills, improving communication, and developing a keener understanding of oneself and others. This all leads to a more joyful and peaceful way of living.
