I specialize in working with individuals who are having a difficult time fostering healthy relationships, whether the difficulty is in a current relationship or in finding and keeping a partner. Unconsciously, there is a pattern that gets repeated in each relationship. I believe that working through past issues and past experiences, leads to a more positive future. Taking the necessary time to understand the true cause of a problem will help in preventing recurrence. Together we will uncover your true potential by releasing old patterns that hold you back from having a life that is fulfilled and peaceful.
I provide empathy and safety, and just the right amount of toughness. This combination allows individuals to uncover the root of their pain, which can lead to growth and expansion in ones life and psyche.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I specialize in trauma, couples, and individuals having relationships difficulties. I approach these issues using an integration of EFT (emotionally focused therapy, EMDR, and somatic psychology.

I help individuals overcome relational difficulties, whether that is in a current relationship or in seeking the right partner. Through understanding past relationships, even as early as the relationship with your parent/s, we can uncover the common unconscious behaviors and patterns that keep preventing you from experiencing the love that you deserve.
I use EFT when working with couples. EFT helps couples recognize the negative cycle that occurs in their relationship. Identifying and understanding the root cause of this cycle helps couples move towards greater trust, connection and intimacy.
My degree encompasses Somatic Psychology (mind/body) and I am a trained EMDR practitioner. EMDR therapy is one of the best know techniques for healing trauma. I work with each person from a holistic perspective to help them on their own unique journey towards health and peace.
