Background: Prior to entering the world of psychotherapy, I worked in the apparel industry for over two decades. My career change in 2008 was not only a midlife renewal but a calling that completely changed the course of my life that I am truly grateful for. I have since worked in community mental health settings for seven years and private practice for three years. I am experienced in providing counseling and case management services to adolescents, adults, couples and families. I have extensive training and experience in diagnosing and treating a wide range of mental health disorders. I am also trained in EMDR, DBT and hypnotherapy.
Philosophy: I am passionate about psychotherapy. Much of my work revolves around helping individuals and families cope with life stress, depression, anxiety, loss and grief, trauma, relationship difficulties, work related stress, cultural and family of origin issues, and life transitions. With compassion and empathy, I create a safe environment of trust, where together we explore the underlying causes of physical and emotional pain, and discover unconscious beliefs that create patterns of behavior, which may limit individual growth and the ability to experience life fully. I view psychotherapy as an opportunity for personal and spiritual growth. I use an integrative approach to psychotherapy, drawing on a variety of Eastern and Western philosophies as well as evidence-based treatment models. Mindfulness, creativity and spirituality are important aspects of the work I do. I am honored and privileged be on the healing journey with each and every one of my clients.
