I feel a personal strength of mine is an authentic, real, honest and straightforward approach. I believe in a safe space where one feels validated and acknowledged. I will work hard to understand your needs, your fears, your strengths, and your hopes for where you would like to be in your life.
Who I Serve:
I truly enjoy working with teen girls, women and couples. I value a strong therapeutic alliance and believe that a supportive and collaborative working relationship is instrumental in helping clients improve their overall quality of life. I am committed to helping others find their inner strength and passion. I have a wide range of life experiences; this can help me to better understand you. As a 12-year yoga teacher, I believe in the power of the breath, and of mindfulness/relaxation techniques to help calm the stressed body and mind. I also come from an artistic background, which has allowed me to appreciate and respect the unique differences everyone brings to life. All are welcome—all spiritual/religious viewpoints, all sexual orientations, all backgrounds, and all political beliefs. This is a safe place.
