Approach to Therapy

When the call for change comes in your life, finding and engaging with a therapist who supports this opening can be vital to your success.



  • I always emphasize acceptance, compassion and empowerment

  • I provide a safe, yet challenging therapeutic environment

  • I offer treatment solutions based on your unique situation and needs

  • I remain an active participant in our sessions


My strength is in helping you:


  • find and activate your own intrinsic motivation

  • spotlight, understand and transform outdated beliefs and behaviors

  • learn new skills and tools to respond to your challenges

  • develop a vision and direction for your life

The goal is always to create a more meaningful and harmonious life.

In my approach to counseling and psychotherapy, I follow a simple and natural three-phase process which utilizes specialized counseling techniques that support the aim of each phase:

1. AWARENESS- Discovering, identifying and understanding the sources of your pain and problems. This phase develops a clear awareness of the traumas, core beliefs, unresolved feelings or behavioral patterns that hurt you and hold you back from being who you want to be. This phase also harnesses motivation and develops hope for the future.

2. TRANSFORMATION - Transforming misguided perspectives, negative attitudes and assumptions, unhealthy patterns and old ways of being - into ones that that serve you in positive ways.

3. ACTION - - Making meaningful and lasting changes in your viewpoint, attitude and behaviors. This phase is action-oriented, as you surround yourself with resources and support that help you initiate new choices and experience new results.



I always emphasize acceptance, compassion and empowerment.

I know that we all need help in critical times.
Reaching out for support and guidance is a sign of strength.
