With over 10 years of experience as a Marriage and Family Therapist, and a graduate of the Phillips Graduate Institute, my Masters Thesis explores Early Childhood Recollections. I specialize in Humanistic and Family Systems, with a holistic approach, and I am currently serving as a private practitioner working with a broad spectrum of clients. Among my areas of expertise are depression, anxiety, self-esteem/personal growth and creative solutions.
My mission is to champion others to grow personally, professionally, creatively, emotionally and spiritually by using my compassion, unique perspective, and my belief in others inherent goodness, integrity and enormous potential.
I am an interactive, solution-focused therapist. My therapeutic approach is to provide support and practical feedback to help clients effectively address personal life challenges. I integrate complementary methodologies and techniques to offer a personalized approach tailored to each client. With compassion and understanding, I work with each individual and couple to help them build on their strengths and attain the personal growth they are committed to accomplishing.
