My Approach to Helping

I help individuals through discovering with them their unmet needs from childhood and adolescence and giving limited reparenting to heal those unmet needs. The client becomes self compassionate and better able to cope with different struggles.

I invite you to begin your journey of self improvement with me in an safe, ethical, and professional therapeutic relationship, built upon 28 years of experience.

More Info About My Practice

I believe in bringing out the best in people as a way to help them reach their goals at a pace which they are comfortable with moving.
I do not believe in re-traumatizing a patient by unnecessarily asking a client to re-live their trauma. I do beI think it is helpful to revisit childhood and adolescence to unearth where unmet emotional needs were unmet so that the work for limited reparenting can begin. It is always paramount to have compassion for a client throughout therapy.

Perhaps you have an unsettling feeling in beginning therapy. This initial uneasiness is experienced by many individuals. However, once the sharing and unburdening of pent up feelings by my client begins in therapy with myself, there is a released reaction of calmness and relief for having begun therapy with me.

I also integrate dream analysis within therapy, as it is helpful for the client in unlocking insight into oneself.
