My Approach to Helping

Have you experienced a life-changing loss and are unsure how to let go of the pain? I can help you accept what has occurred and find healthy coping strategies to move forward without suffering. Are you struggling with low self-esteem or feeling like you "have to be perfect " all the time due to fear of being judged or rejected? I can help you. Please call and schedule your free 15-minute initial video session. You do not have to go through this challenging time alone. I can teach you how to work through the pain and fear while increasing the courage you need to overcome Grief, Anxiety, and Depression. I have 10 years of experience working with individuals just like you. I realize that taking this first step feels frightening and overwhelming however I can help you navigate through your very human emotions. I will create a safe working space where together we will explore how you can learn from your past so you can heal in the present, and move towards your future feeling empowered.

¿Ha experimentado una pérdida que le cambió la vida y no está seguro de cómo dejar de lado el dolor? Puedo ayudarte a aceptar lo que ha ocurrido y encontrar estrategias de afrontamiento saludables para seguir adelante sin sufrir. ¿Está luchando con baja autoestima o siente que "tiene que ser perfecto" todo el tiempo por miedo a ser juzgado o rechazado? Puedo ayudarle. Llame y programe su sesión de video inicial gratuita de 15 minutos. No tienes que pasar por este momento difícil solo. Puedo enseñarte cómo superar el dolor y el miedo mientras aumentas el coraje que necesitas para superar el duelo, la ansiedad y la depresión. Tengo 10 años de experiencia trabajando con personas como usted. Me doy cuenta de que dar este primer paso se siente aterrador y abrumador, sin embargo, puedo ayudarlo a navegar a través de sus emociones muy humanas. Crearé un espacio de trabajo seguro donde juntos exploraremos cómo puedes aprender de tu pasado para que puedas sanar en el presente y avanzar hacia tu futuro sintiéndote empoderado.
