Practice Description:

I work from the approach that most of our pain in life stems from difficult or damaging relationships, in various shapes and forms. Despite that, I also hold the strong belief that true healing is found in healthy relationships. The therapeutic relationship is so unique because it offers the client a safe, intimate space where there is no judgement or agenda- where the therapists seves as a witness who validates our pain and offers compassion. My person-centered approach allows connection and trust to build in a gentle, natural manner. In working together, we create a space that provides you the safety to explore your feelings, challenge old assumptions, and do the brave work of transformation. Together we will use a mindful approach that involves noticing and responding to whatever unfolds, and utilize the therapeutic relationship to build compassion and create change. We all have the innate capacity to do this, but sometimes we need a little guidance from someone we trust to remind us of our potential.
