Great to meet you!

I'm an empathic listener offering you a safe sounding board and nurturing validation. This acceptance can help motivate you to prioritize goals, use healthy coping skills to self-soothe, balance mind-body connections, & guide personal change. I believe you have your own strengths, talents, and your own inner wisdom & may benefit from learning coping skills, healing from emotional pain in creative ways, gaining confidence, hope and resilience to improve your life & relationships.

A bit about my approach to therapy

My therapy techniques involve flexibility, cooperation and collaboration to transform your outlook, moods, habits, and relationships. I offer different techniques (CBT, DBT, ACT) depending on your preferences & needs. I provide empathic listening & acceptance which then allows you to feel validated, worthy, & capable of using your strengths to transform your life - taking steps to reach your valued goals. Transform your mind-body-spirit self to motivate positive change & personal growth.

What you can expect from our first session

Taking small steps to change your thoughts & actions, you can transform your life & relationships! My clients can expect to gain hope, validation of feelings, strength to take steps forward to heal, change core negative beliefs, develop healthy habits, learn & practice positive coping skills to improve moods & functioning. *I am not an MD & do not prescribe medications. CA residents only. March 2024 - Headway will not process psych testing, evaluations, formal diagnostic clarification services.
