About

I am experienced working with clients who struggle with, recurrent depressive thoughts or feelings, frequent anxiety, panic attacks, traumatic past experiences, emotional instability, feelings of overwhelming stress, and difficulty communicating with others. I do work with adults as well as children, and families, focusing on enhancing emotional awareness, learning parenting tools, and implementing healthy relationship boundaries. Life has a way of accumulating and overwhelming us, counseling is the process of gaining awareness and finding a healthy life balance once again.

I work from an integrative and wellness perspective bringing in tools from different theoretical approaches. Such as multicultural and cognitive-behavioral approaches, in combination with person-centered, humanistic, and existential counseling. Within sessions we will learn to explore and become more aware of ourselves, while practicing concrete skills.

Counseling is a process of ‘becoming’ who we want to be, and facilitating growth. It is a lifeline when we are overwhelmed and feeling out of touch with reality and ourselves. The first step is just a phone call away.
