"Focusing on the whole person (heart, mind, body and soul), I connect with my clients in a natural way, identifying negative cycles that have them stuck, whether they be patterns of thinking, feeling or behaviors. I help clients facing issues such as marital/relational dissatisfaction, struggles in parenting, depression, anxiety, OCD, and stressful life situations, to unpack their concerns, and with patient support, find the path towards resilient hope and lasting change."
