Personal Statement

Hope. Hope is what I feel for every client I see. As a therapist, I am flat-out determined to support others in healing their relationships, their traumas, and their heart, no matter how impossible it may seem. You are not alone. Truer than ever before, the world is full of suffering. I am experienced and prepared to assist you in your healing journey. I particularly enjoy working with couples, and empowering women. You can expect an authentic, honest and straight-forward approach from me. 


Who I Serve

Approaching therapy from a strengths-based perspective, I mainly work with couples, adults and families. Valuing a strong therapeutic alliance, I believe a supportive and collaborative working relationship is key in helping clients improve their overall quality of life. I try to help my clients beyond just coping skills, and work to find the core of the problem to move towards resolution. I am committed to helping people find their inner strength, power and passion. As a 16-year certified yoga teacher, and long-term advanced meditator, I deeply believe in the power of the breath, meditation, and of mindfulness/relaxation techniques to help heal the stressed body and mind. Coming from an artistic background has allowed me to appreciate and respect the unique differences everyone brings to life.
