My Approach to Helping

I love to help people feel better and live more fulfilling lives. Whether you're struggling with anxiety, self-esteem, addictive habits or relationship difficulties, we will work together to help you create greater ease, balance and joy in your life. The key to change is a greater awareness of what you are doing, why you keep doing it, and learning how to meet your needs with healthier choices.

My lively therapeutic style is interactive, compassionate, practical, and sometimes even fun. My work is rooted in a strong personal practice of mindfulness meditation. I am inspired by using difficulties to wake up, evolve and enjoy the vast potential of life and love.

My Role as a Therapist

I am here to listen, understand and support your growth towards the life you want. I create a safe space for your honest exploration of your inner worlds. I will reflect back what I see and feel with my full attention and open heart. We will create and practice new behaviors to help you attain your goals. I humbly offer my experience, wisdom and compassion in the service of your personal growth.

Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist

You want to feel comfortable with and inspired by your therapist. There is a certain chemistry when you feel like she understands you and is attuned to what you do and don't say. You should feel the potential to trust her and to respect her perspective and guidance. If you don't feel any of these qualities in the first session, I suggest that you keep looking for a better match.
