Areas of Expertise
I have a passion to help others discover the positive qualities they possess. I place an importance on self love, self care, body positivity and overall wellbeing of ones self. I want to help others who are struggling to look at themselves in a positive light see the beauty of their true selves. Through different therapeutic techniques and my positive perspective I want to help you discover your true self, and how to love yourself for who YOU are because you're worthy!
I use Gottman Method for couples therapy. Gottman Method, is designed to help teach specific tools to deepen friendship and intimacy in your relationship. Gottman Method helps a couple productively manage conflict, and during therapy you will be given methods to manage resolvable problems and dialogue about gridlock issues. We will work together to help you appreciate your relationship's strengths and to gently navigate through its vulnerabilities.
Family issues can manifest in the healthiest of families which results in challenging, frustrating and hurtful interractions among family members. I want to collaborate with your family to address the family problems that are happening. Together we will create new problem free pathways that foster open communication, balance among family members, and reenforce structure and boundaries in the family system. I utilize various therapeutic techniques that help with connection and repair, and help establish a strong foundation for your family to build upon. Together you make a family that is not broken, but breaking through.
I believe that when you feel overwhelmed, by an emotion, a situation, a relationship, or anything else, you tend to focus on what you cannot control. I am passionate about helping people recognize the things in life that they can control and harnessing the power that comes with that discovery.
I believe that we are all on the path we are meant to be on. Sometimes our path is bumpy, we take a wrong turn, and sometimes we can get stuck. However, it's important to remember with each obstacle we may face that we are still on OUR path and our path can change.
My first priority is to make sure you feel heard, understood and validated. I will listen without judgment, I will be careful with your trust, and I will create a safe space in my office where you can be vulnerable and open. I don't have a planned agenda or a check list with how each session has to go, I meet each client, family or couple where they are at. My goal is to work collaboratively with you and develop a personalized integrative approach to therapy that is focused on realistic solutions, highlights your strengths, and is conducive to your overall quality of life. I embrace the idea that everyone has a different personality, different concerns, relational problems and history of life experiences.
