Let me help you get your feet
back on the ground

   Most women are strong, caring, and smart by nature. Yet, there are times in our lives when we lose our sense of belonging and emotional stability. If you are reading these words, it has probably been a while since you felt like yourself; strong and satisfied with your sense of agency. Something is off and preventing you from living the way you would like. There could be a myriad of reasons for you to feel this way and the fact that you are aware of the situation and seeking professional assistance tells me you are invested in your well-being; how brave!

   I invite you to replenish your health and power through individual therapy.  I have designed this therapeutic process for self-reflection, grounding, and resetting. Infuse yourself with nutrients from the center of your gravity; initiate recovery and establish the internal stability you once had.

ABOUT

ABOUT ME

About Me

From a very young age I have had an inquisitive mind; interested in observing human behavior, attitudes, preferences. What makes some of us to get up and push forward during hard times, while others give in and sink in? Like Viktor Frankl implied, what do we do with the SPACE between the time an event occurs, and the way we respond to it? Are we unaware of it? Do we ignore it or use it to our benefit in deciding how to respond to the situation at hand? I am the kind of person that often wonders about the many wonders of life! Being surrounded by nature or in the middle of a city, I see life as a splendid book where I’m able to discover something new in every chapter or every time I re-read it. I’m optimistic and also realistic, often trying to be objective searching for different perspectives even if they lead me outside of my comfort zone. I often make “mistakes,” some I attempt to fix, others I let go…. Deeply understanding that I’m not responsible for others’ behaviors or attitudes but my own has improved my sense of agency and loyalty to myself! Similar to most people, I’ve gone through difficult periods in my life. Many times while in the middle of the turmoil a way out has been obscured and difficult to envisioned. What has helped? The support of my family and friends; Professional assistance and definately my own determination to reach my goal, whatever it was! Many times when we are suffering those in our surroundings are unaware or unwilling to understand the reasons why or to accommodate our specific needs. In fact, our suffering could become and inconvenience and they might even prefer that we step out of their way all together. Consequently, consciously or unconsciously denying us much needed support. So, through my own therapeutic journey, I have learned that although the support of others is powerful, it is ultimately my responsibility as an adult to make decisions about my own life. Thus when confused and assaulted by lingering doubts, what is important to me is the capacity to be able to lean on my inner strength and move forward.

My Style

I have heard my clients describe my style as "genuinely refreshing." I believe that my job as a clinician takes a presence of its own in the sense that it becomes naturally activated once a client is in front of me. The therapy I offer is tailored to support women seeking exploration and guidance regarding daily life issues. It is a strength-based therapeutic approach developed to activate dormant, yet powerful personal traits.
