My Approach to Helping

Maybe all you really want is to have a positive relationship with others, such as your family, partner, friends, and neighbors.  Or maybe you've had a string of romances that have ended in heartache, and you're wishing you change that, but you don't know how.
With relationship counseling, you can learn to forgive yourself for past mistakes. You can develop skills in being more accepting and in control, when faced with frustrating situation with others.

More Info About My Practice

Don't put this off. Learn to see change as a good thing. Let's get started.

My Role as a Therapist

Whether you're reeling from the loss of a loved one, the separation from your family, or the severance from a job, taking control of your new circumstances is an important part of turning around your life.?
Don't put this off. Learn to see change as a good thing.

My Therapy Focus

My focus in therapy is to listen unconditionally, give new perspective to consider, help others to feel their feelings and clear their thoughts and to continue to support, encourage, and applaud changes made in therapy.

My Guiding Ethical Principles

As a therapist, I commit to helping others to restore hope, find new meanings and visions in life and achieve full potentials amidst life's challenges, losses and transitions.

How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist

While the details of a person's situation may be different from others, it helps when someone understands what we are going through and knows how emotions could take over our lives. Growing up as a young adult, I learned to overcome my own fears. One of the first thing I discovered was that it helped a lot to talk it through with an objective listener. But most of all, I needed to be opened to new ways of thinking, to be more positive instead of negative. Getting to this point has definitely been a winding road, with some pretty big potholes along the way. I can most definitely relate to your struggles with uncomfortable emotions.
