By fostering a safe and nonjudgmental space, my aim is to collaboratively explore your experiences, values, and goals, empowering you to navigate life’s complexities with confidence and authenticity.

In my practice, I am deeply committed to embracing a person-centered approach, which places you—the client—at the heart of our therapeutic journey.

“People are capable, at any time in their lives, of doing what they dream of.” – Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist

What do you think the world needs more of?

In a world often characterized by division and discord, there is an undeniable need for more compassion, kindness, and gentleness. These qualities serve as guiding lights, fostering understanding, empathy, and harmony among individuals and communities. Through acts of compassion, we acknowledge the inherent dignity of every person, while kindness cultivates bonds of solidarity and fosters a culture of generosity. Gentleness, in its sincerity and humility, nurtures healing and reconciliation, soothing the wounds inflicted by hardship and strife. Embracing these virtues not only enriches our personal lives but also holds the potential to transform the fabric of society, creating a more compassionate and interconnected world for generations to come.
