My Approach to Helping

It's hard to stay afloat at times. Life has a way of making us lose confidence in ourselves, our decisions, our relationships, or even our feelings. It's hard to find some clarity or to feel like we are making any improvements in life when we have left our past unprocessed or our bodies and emotions unchecked. That's why it's important to tune into ourselves, identify how past trauma is affecting our current moments in life, utilize skills to cope with anxiety and fear, and gain insight into the profound inner workings of our minds.

I want to dive into that journey with you. To work together with you to build a strong connection with oneself, through compassion and letting go of control; to feel more comfortable with oneself, through mindfulness and assertiveness training; to improve one's lifestyle, through cognitive-based therapy and dialectical-based therapy, and to altogether watch you grow into how you want to be.

More Info About My Practice

I do what I do because I understand what it feels like to feel lost and it's not a comfortable place to be. But it was through the support of other people and my own spiritual journey that helped me find myself again and learn how to cope with life's many challenges. That is my cause and my belief; to help others explore and learn from themselves, to create who they want to be. So to uphold my purpose, I have worked and volunteered in different settings, ranging from Head Start programs in Camden to intensive outpatient programs (IOP) programs in Princeton and outpatient settings in New Brunswick, all for the support of this cause.

    Are there deep, painful experiences that are still affecting your everyday life and relationships leaving you feeling suffocated?
