You deserve to live a life that is balanced, fulfilling & meaningful. With the stressors & pressures of our society, it can be difficult to navigate your life’s roadmap. Therapy gives you the tools to learn from your past, be mindful in the present & pave the way for a brighter future. Whether you're dealing with anxiety, depression, or other issues that interfere with your personal well-being, psychotherapy can help you access your innate ability to heal & thrive. I have 14 years' experience empowering individuals & couples impacted by grief, illness, trauma & addiction.
My education & experience in the healthcare/mental health industries allows me to approach client issues from a global, integrative perspective. I'm trained in psychoanalytical, cognitive & dialectical behavior therapies. I partner with each client to develop an individualized wellness plan that helps in facilitating sustainable, positive life changes.
Whether you're struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma or a change in health, I feel your struggle is a valiant one worthy of respect, understanding & compassion. I would be honored if you chose to take that first step towards wellness with me.
About online counseling
Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $60 to $90 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.
