Feelings, positive or negative, are there for a reason, and if we do not tend to them, we are denying an important part of our mental wellbeing. It does not mean that we need to sit on our negative emotions forever, but it means that only by accepting them and working through them can we move on FROM them.
In my practice, I provide a safe environment where you can start exploring your feelings, accept them, and work through them. It is scary and uncomfortable to face our emotions sometimes, and that is why I am right there with you, through the process, walking by your side.
I see individual clients, couples, and families. My work is highly influenced by Satir’s Transformational Systemic Therapy Model and Leslie Greenberg’s and Sue Johnson’s Emotionally Focused Therapy Model. I believe people have the ability to cope with the problems they face, but sometimes they have no access to these resources. I also believe that safe connections are necessary for change to happen.
Being a therapist is more than a career for me - it is a passion, it is my calling, and it is what gives meaning to my life. This is my second career, and everyday I am grateful for the course that my life took to get me here.
I have been a guest speaker in many different Undergraduate and Graduate classes. I devoted my time in school to studying Eating Disorders, Substance Abuse, and the correlation between them. I am currently an Adjunct Professor at Our Lady of the Lake University.
