I help women overcome life challenges by providing empowerment and positive support. I utilize a mixture of modalities, such as cognitive behavior therapy, psychodynamic, mindfulness, and attachment- based therapy. This provides space for you to participate in deep inner work; to transform, gain self- confidence, balance, inner strength and find empowerment.

Im here to help you during this transitional journey.
Individual therapy is a process where clients work one on one with a psychotherapist in a safe and confidential environment. Time in session will be geared towards the client. Therapy provides clients with the opportunity to explore their own thoughts, feelings and behaviors. As well as process memories, dreams, trauma, etc. Clients can learn to better understand themselves, learn coping skills, and be better equipped to confront life’s challenges. Clients will work with psychotherapist to set goals, and work toward desired change.
Couples therapy is a process where couples work with a psychotherapist in a safe and confidential environment. To gain insight, resolve conflict, and work towards improving relationship satisfaction. Couples will work with the psychotherapist to set goals to focus on a specific problem such as sexual difficulties, intimacy, jealousy, communication, and among others. In couples therapy the couple/relationship is treated as a whole, rather than treating each individual. The psychotherapist is unable to keep secrets among, couples. Couples therapy is geared at gaining insight into realtional dynamics, in order to change behaviors

Family members will have the opportunity to speak and be heard, with an effort to help the family members understand one another.
Risk’s and Benefits
According to the American Psychological Association, “the average person who engages in psychotherapy is better off by the end of treatment than 80 percent of those who don’t receive treatment at all.”
Also, research has shown that when a person schedules their first appointment, it leads to an improvement of their symptoms, due to getting relief. Especially, when a person has been debating to seek therapeutic services, its a relief to know you are a step closer towards working your therapist, and addressing your needs.
Therapy is a process and a journey, where everyone improves at their own rate. In that process you may encounter uncomfortable feelings such as, but not limited to; sadness, vulnerability, guilt, anxiety, and anger. Therapy may bring back painful memories, and disrupt relationships. Things may feel worse before they get better due to working and talking about painful situations, these feelings should only be temporary. For therapy to be successful, the client needs to work toward change. Your psychotherapist is there to assist you on your journey.
