Of course it can be intimidating to face yourself in therapy, but therapy also has the capacity to be the most liberating, empowering experience in the world. Understanding yourself and what makes you 'tick' places you at a whole new level of creative control of your life. When we don't have insight into why we act in certain ways, we are at the mercy of the subconscious and unconscious coping skills we developed to deal with life as children and adolescents.
The feeling of "being alone" or "broken" is a painfully common theme in my area of specialization. We live in a time when most people are sending in their 'representatives' to show up in friendships, relationships, and social media. This leaves the natural and common experiences of emotional ups and downs, grief, confusion, sadness, and anger to live in the shadows, where they transform into the experience of long term suffering. We feel separate, alone and desperate. My approach intends to offer you the lens that views all experiences--the "good" and the "bad";--as opportunities for connection, healing, and growth.

Masters, Mental Health Counseling, Carlos Albizu University
I grew up in a household of chiropractors and holistic healers, and their influence led me to understand that the mind, body, and spirit are deeply entwined and should be treated as one whole, integrated unit. Before I embarked on my professional career as a therapist, I made a point to become certified as a yoga instructor in order to better conceptualize the integration of mind and body. I have taught and continue to teach Trauma Informed Yoga for the past 8 years. My Master's Internship was spent working both as an inpatient and outpatient Therapist for Agape Network, where I held space for women and children who struggled with a variety of mental health disorders, more often than not preceded by trauma and accompanied by substance abuse. In my private practice, I have utilized both top down (talk therapy) and bottom up (breath, eye movement and somatic therapy) techniques to assist my clients in safely reconnecting to and recalibrating their nervous systems. The safe space of therapy allows us to understand the roots of our unhealthy coping patterns, which gives us the self knowledge and empowerment necessary to think and choose differently.
