My approach for ten years is to meet you where you are at in an authentic and compassion way. I remain flexible, open and non-judgmental in an effort to cater
to your unique needs while ensuring a high standard of quality care. Together, we will explore with depth the experiences that have molded your personality and the presenting issues that bring you to therapy in the first place, including depression, anxiety, trauma, self-esteem, insecurity, learning disabilities, relationship & family conflict, grief and loss, trauma, rejection, perfectionism, feelings of inadequacy, stigma and marginalization within your family, organizations and society. Our therapeutic rapport will be the instrument for change in your relationships with significant others. The insight you gain from our relationship will sharpen your awareness of your thoughts, feelings & roles you play in relationships with the people you encounter in your every day life and will allow you to experience new and meaningful ways of being with others.
