Every person, has a story to share. It’s empowering when we can tell our stories and feel heard, validated and understood. Our challenges and victories shaped our past, defined our present and drew a trajectory for our future. We are often left feeling empty, out of control and lost. We can adapt and embrace the inevitable need for change. Inner reflections are also challenging and could be intimidating. It takes courage and strength to accept personal limitations, embrace vulnerability and face fears. By overcoming pain, we can feel joy and embrace a lifestyle that validates us and promotes positive relationships.


I believe in people’s innate goodness and their ability to heal. Our current physical, mental and emotional state reflects our trauma and holds all clues to what our body needs to fully heal. The body remembers and continues re-living the trauma long after the event is over. Safety and comfort are essential for allowing our mind and body to embrace healing. Therapy is a commitment to yourself and you don't have to do it alone. We will journey in and out of darkness, while gaining knowledge, new perspectives, growth and understanding. Together we can work towards acceptance, self-love, adaptation, and discovering the most authentic YOU.
