With specialties in addiction and dual diagnosis; such as depression, anxiety and trauma history, I take an integrated, holistic approach to care. The therapeutic relationship is one in which optimum healing is as a result of the reciprocal bond, between the therapist and the client.
One can only be open to the experience of change and improvement in their life if they feel safe. This is the therapy space that I provide in order to help shape authentic, loving but accurate self-awareness. I provide nurturance, guidance, affirmation and compassionate reflection in order to help clients feel grounded in their own decision-making.
You can meet with me in the privacy of your own home or office space. I am accessible even when you are traveling! Join me in my fully private and confidential telemedicine office space!
