About My Clients

The clients I work with often struggle with the profound effects of trauma, addiction, intimacy, adoption, and anxiety. They may battle with the lingering emotional wounds and triggers. They are courageous souls seeking healing, growth, and a higher quality of life.

My Background and Approach

With years of experience and a deep understanding of the complexities surrounding life issues, I strive to create a safe, supportive and non-judgmental environment. I am a compassionate, dedicated therapist specializing in trauma, addiction, and sex therapy and believe it is important to foster a therapeutic alliance built on trust and mutual respect. Guided by empathy and a commitment to client well-being, I work as a team with individuals to navigate the challenges they face. By utilizing evidence-based techniques, a person-centered approach, and a holistic perspective, I assist in uncovering the root causes of behaviors, trauma, and addictions. Through evidence-based therapies and personalized techniques, I strive to empower you in developing resilience, healthy coping mechanisms, skills, and tools to increase the quality of daily life and ultimately cultivate balance.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

As a psychotherapist, I hold the strong belief that every individual has the capacity to find balance and enhance their quality of life. I firmly believe in the inherent resilience and potential for growth within each person. Through the therapeutic process, I strive to empower individuals to explore their inner resources, tap into their strengths, and make positive changes. I view balance as a dynamic interplay between various domains of life, including emotional, physical, relational, and spiritual aspects. By addressing and integrating these dimensions, individuals can achieve a state of equilibrium and fulfillment. I emphasize the importance of self-care, self-compassion, and healthy boundaries as essential components of achieving balance. I believe in the power of introspection, self-reflection, and mindfulness practices as transformative tools for personal growth.
