I have learned the power of being deeply heard and this is what I bring to my work with my clients. Therapy has proven to be a catalyst of change and healing in my own life; helping me to deconstructing ideas, expectations or labels that were not my own, recreating a life that was more aligned with my true nature; dismantling fear so that I can live in my own way, a life that is aligned with my nature, my values, and my identity.
As your therapist, I am committed to this deep listening. In this way, through the co-creation of a supportive relationship together, we create the conditions for insight, self compassion, liberation from worn out ways of being and thinking, and the emergence of a deeper and more conscious self understanding. I consider it a privilege, to assist you in overcoming these struggles and find your voice, your strength as you develop, grow and become the person you are uniquely gifted to be.
With over 24 years of licensed clinical experience, I continue to find the journey of each client intriguing, challenging and exciting. I bring myself, my own story and my professional training and experience, to meet each person with the intent to simply listen. It is my passion to participate in the journey of healing with each of my clients, and I am grateful for the ways that I learn alongside of them.
