My Approach to Helping

My philosophy is C.A.L.M. Therapy (Crafting and Actualizing Life's Meaning). C.A.L.M. Therapy is an interactive and strengths approach designed to bring forth the best in the individual. Life challenges, as opposed to problems, are explored and unique solutions are found to help the individual live their best life possible, in the present.

For couples, I am a Level II Trained Therapist in The Psychobiological Approach to Couples Therapy. This therapy integrates the mind and body functioning and gives couples the tools to create a safe and secure, and long-lasting relationship.

My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy

It is crafting and designing the life that you want to live. It is about breaking free from the negative life scripts, the opinions of others, and the dysfunction that have been holding the individual and/or the couple back.

My Role as a Therapist

I am a guide to help seekers discover the truth of who they truly are, and to help them lead fulfilled lives.
