I specialize in codependency, people pleasing, self-esteem and self-identity acceptance.

The need to people please even if it is not in your best interest, the fear of being abandoned and the constant pattern of engaging into and maintaining unhealthy relationships. Life gets too difficult because you feel unworthy of love. You are constantly avoiding emotional intimacy because of insecurity and self-doubt. But the fear of making a change is too overwhelming. At the end of the day you are longing for purpose and fulfillment, which seem impossible to attain. All it takes is hope and curiosity to start understanding and appreciating your own strengths and weaknesses. A healthier and happier life is possible.

My practice is based on cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) with a person-centered therapy approach. CBT shows us that our thoughts, emotions and behaviors are all connected and depending on the perspective that we give to each situation, whether negative or positive will create the outcome of our well-being.

I offer a safe place with compassion, empathy and honesty with a non-judgmental presence. I trust that when you feel the safety of the environment it will give you an opportunity to say the things you would otherwise never say. I strive to help you process and to learn new tools to finally feel unstuck again.
