I work with a wide range of emotional and behavioral issues, from providing counseling guidance to individuals and all types of families going through difficult transitions, to offering parenting support and counseling. In my practice I emphasize the importance of learning effective communication, self-acceptance, and self-appreciation for surviving a painful past.I study the exciting new discoveries in neuroscience to discover how they apply to psychotherapy, and use the latest therapeutic methodologies such as Internal Family Systems, Coherence Therapy and EMDR that have proven to be effective in helping people find a resolution from trauma, unresolved grief and the suffering that these events cause. I enjoy providing my clients with a genuine and supportive atmosphere in which they can receive a highly personalized approach tailored to their individual needs. My goal as a therapist is to help you find the right direction of your life path so that your past and other life challenges will not diminish you. Rather, by discovering where you are going and learning Self-acceptance, those challenges will strengthen your resolve towards attaining your personal growth and a real inner peace..
