Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), Psychodynamic, Relational, Solution-focused, Strengths-based
My clients find that my approach promotes safety through my warm, calm, authentic, and transparent stance. I believe that life provides many opportunities that are meant to help us transform psychologically. I highly value personal growth and believe that my endless search for personal growth informs my practice. The more I know, the more I enhance my clinical practice and provided quality treatment. I believe that as humans, we are meant to have fulfilling lives. Unfortunately, events happen that distort our ability to see possibilities and can further guide us to unhealthy behaviors. Regardless of the situation, it is never too late to regain control of your life.
My practice is informed by Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP) and Transformative Couple Therapy (TCT). I have found that these models perfectly align with my philosophical views of psychotherapy. My holistic approach promotes a deep transformation that is experienced through all the senses and enhances unique gifts. I believe that fulfilling lives lead to fulfilling intimate relationships, ultimately promoting the safety and love that is essential for raising children.

I became a psychotherapist to help my clients craft the fulfilling life they desire.
I enjoy working out, cooking, reading, traveling, and watching comedy and suspense movies.
Working out is a mindful experience. My focus on breathing and the connection between the mind and body promotes psychophysiological well-being.
I recharge by disconnecting from the therapist in me on weekends and taking time off as needed.
I have a beagle; her name is Chiquita. She is loving, playful, and brilliant. I enjoy taking her on walks and playing with her.
