Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Seeking help can be a challenge, but it can also bring a sense of hope. Are you feeling trapped or have you reached a point in your life where making decisions has become cumbersome? Therapy can be an avenue of exploration and self awareness. Don’t carry the burden alone! Living with the difficulties of life does not have to be a self serving mission. I am an LMFT with over 16 years of experience and a track record of having successfully worked with people make necessary and positive changes in their lives. In treatment, I follow a holistic approach utilizing various modalities, such as cognitive behavioral techniques, DBT, coaching, and client centered approaches. I also utilize mindfulness techniques in my work and incorporate mind-body connection. Call me for a free consultation. My compassion and sincerity come from deep life experience, as well as extensive education and training. I believe that each individual, couple or family deserves unique and personalized attention and treatment. You don't have to do this alone. Meet me and decide if this is a journey we can work together on.
