I grew up in a family of 10 people in a culture and religious environment familiar with disability, disease, mental illness, trauma, death, and abuse. There was plenty of competition for attention with seven siblings, which resulted in both despair and joy. It was like a world within a world in my childhood home.
Like you, some long-lasting effects challenged me, but I learned to take risks through psychotherapy and counseling and emerged happier and more authentically myself. It’s never over! With my spouse and children, I continue the journey in my own family.
As a licensed psychotherapist with 25 years of experience, I want to help you do the same. To do this, I will draw on proven interventions and techniques such as CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), emotionally-focused strategies, trauma-informed, family systems, the Gottman Method, and many more.
Together, we will help you advance and realize a life free from past hang-ups and current roadblocks. My help does more than validate your pain; it aims for recovery and improvement. Specifically, we will develop a tailored approach for your progress and growth by diving deep into understanding your pain and suffering. We will then move along the path to emotional healing and self-empowerment.
