Unique Qualities

Using a relational model, I offer people a safe and trusting environment to explore life challenges, hopes and goals. My expertise is in trauma recovery, eating disorders/body image and addictions. However, I enjoy all areas of mental health and wellness.

My approach to therapy is fluid, depending on where a person is at any particular time. Throughout the course of therapy, a person’s needs change, so the approach needs to remain flexible. Some of the work I offer is related to family of origin, improving the quality of relationships, mind-body awareness and making cognitive-behavioral changes. I use various techniques that include psychoeducation, role play, psychodrama and an energy therapy called Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT).

Professional Passion

I continue to be amazed at the resilience of human beings and the drive toward health. I find it an honor to be part of a person’s healing journey and am humbled each and every day by my clients’ faith and trust. Helping others regain their personal power (or perhaps finding it for the first time) and developing belief in themselves is a true joy and my heartfelt passion.
