One of my philosophies of life is that although we cannot always control our experiences and circumstances, we can choose our responses to them and dive into how they affect and influence us as humans. We can then learn to understand how life mirrors to us the way we relate to ourselves. I believe life is change; growth optional. We ultimately have the capacity to grow if we allow ourselves to, as acknowledging change is allowing it to happen while it unfolds.
I work to create a safe, warm, and loving environment that allows for self-inquiry and exploration of all aspects of the self, to blend into a grander whole, in order for change to occur.
I believe when we turn within ourselves, finding a quiet space to hold inside, an innate and fluid course of healing opens that we can tap into and expand from. A space to reflect is possibly one of the most challenging and yet rewarding pieces of today. Together we will help you, your child, or family to create this space to reflect, to foster heart-centered awareness unto yourself, and to develop an authentic philosophy based on one’s core beliefs.
My approach to therapy treads amongst integration of various modalities. I am trained in EMDR therapy, Level 1 of the Gottman method of couples therapy, breath therapy, sandtray, and yoga. While on this journey of life, I have been greeted with a kaleidoscope of magnificent and challenging encounters, yet, it was in the midst of the unfolding during these dark and ominous moments, and the growth they requested of me that I came to know my life purpose: to better understand myself and the world surrounding me so that I can be a halcyon light of unconditional love and understanding.
