"I believe each individual has the potential and capacity to discover their ideal self. As a therapist, I take a holistic and systemic assessment and with understanding and gentleness, I help facilitate the awakening of awareness. With your newfound awareness of your mind's and body's patterns, together, we formulate solutions to transform your relationship with yourself, with others and your environment. In my therapy room, you can expect intentional interventions that help you make sense of your experience, an emphasis on progress towards your goals and above all, a safe place to bring your whole selves to the table."
