My Approach to Helping

My approach is to co-create safety to facilitate deep understandings so that you can open to considering making choices more conducive to empowerment while providing genuine opportunities to experience your authentic self.

My Role as a Therapist

My approach to therapy is based on the belief that everyone has the wisdom and personal power to make choices more conducive to meaning in life. Based on my experience, we are always making choices and even, when not making a choice we are always still choosing! The problem is that we are not always fully aware of all our potentials and how these might be actualized. That is why, I believe increasing our clarity, understanding, and acceptance of our choices and consequences tends to help us feel more at peace with our humanity. As a therapist, my role is to guide you to bring awareness into the unconscious and conscious roadblocks that may be preventing you from embracing your power and living a deeper and more fulfilling life. In essence, therapy is about unraveling the best version of yourself.
