In Eastern Time

What does a first session with you look like?

The first session is about getting to know you, your family history, and the dysfunctional patterns which led you to seek therapy.

In what ways do your life philosophy and treatment philosophy overlap?

I believe that we are all sensitive, vulnerable, beings who need compassion and presence. I provide a calm compassionate place for my clients to feel safe and be heard while they untangle and process through dysfunctional patterns.

In what ways does your personality influence your approach to therapy?

I am a big proponent of self-care. I encourage my clients to take really good care of themselves and I practice the same for myself. I derive my strength and inspiration from various world renown speakers, continuous research, a commitment to personal growth, yoga practice, and meditation.
