I became a therapist because of my deep desire to help people improve the quality of their lives. I believe in assisting clients in the exploration of their challenges and help find ways to empower them to discover their own solutions. I possess the ability to listen carefully and discern a client's needs. My training and experience have taught me that people sometimes need the opportunity to explore their emotions and thought processes in order to find peace. My goal is to help people discover who they are and work with their strengths to create a new way of living.
Relational issues, anxiety, panic, depression and PTSD are my area of focus for which Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is the most effective treatment. I have worked closely with children and their families to help them find healing and change in behavioral and system patterns. I believe in a holistic appraisal and assessment process in which each area of one's life is explored in order to discover a healthy balance.
