By building a strong therapeutic relationship with my clients and by listening to and understanding them, I can determine the best approach that meets their needs and obtain their goals. With many different interventions, my clients will learn techniques to become aware and they will be able to identify their thought, emotional and behavioral patterns as well as identify the patterns that work for them and the ones that don’t. Exploring new ways of being, thinking, and behaving allows my clients to reach and maintain the fulfilling life that they want and deserve to have.

I love anything outdoors! I enjoy traveling to new places and trying new things, I have a dog and a cat and love animals, I like trying new food, interior design, reading and watching documentaries!
Change your Brain Change Your Life is a great book written by one of my favorite psychiatrists name Daniel Amen and I have read it a few times because I feel I can learn something new from it every time I read it.
Child Foundation Organization, because it helps children around the world get educated.
Taking a trip in nature.
I have a cat named Maila and a French Bulldog named Duke! Interacting with these two, who by the way do not get along, in day-to-day life is full of fun stories!
