Great to meet you!

I am a psychotherapist, child development consultant and mother of two with very different personalities and in my years of clinical experience, I have been able to help families enjoy motherhood, fatherhood and a balanced life. It has been my great pleasure helping clients navigate and overcome challenges caused by emotional issues, unhealthy habits, relationship stress, life transitions, and/or parenting difficulties that might have compromised their personal growth.

A bit about my approach to therapy

Emotional problems, such as depression, anxiety, self-esteem, and stress are very common in all stages of life but can be treated. Using a variety of modalities, especially CBT, I can help you change unhelpful thoughts, face worries and/or fears, learn coping skills, develop a greater sense of confidence, and improve your functioning and interaction with others.

What you can expect from our first session

If you feel determined to receive help to nurture your emotional well-being, lead a healthy life, and build a strong foundation for your children, I can support you explore unhealthy patterns, face worries/fears, learn coping skills, develop a greater sense of confidence, and improve your functioning and interaction/relationship with others. Lets delight in moments of connection while balancing meeting your needs and those of your loved ones.
