The Inner Journey

Throughout our lives we experience feelings and emotions from life events. When we fully understand what our feelings and emotions are and why we are having them, we are better equipped to deal with them. However, sometimes we experience life events that are either so overwhelming or traumatic that we are unable to process them. They become trapped within us.

These unprocessed emotions and feelings impact our thoughts, behaviors, choices, and the relationships we build. By bringing awareness to these unconscious parts of us, we will gain a deeper knowing of who we are. By knowing ourselves better, we can begin to removes blocks that have stood in our way and tap into our own internal resources to resolve issues in our lives and heal from within.

Thus we can begin to shed our old self and create a new way of being for the future.


I view people through a humanistic and transpersonal lens.

This has allowed me to provide a safe, supportive, and non-judgmental space for my clients and fosters a therapeutic alliance and healing environment. In this setting, I assist clients in exploring their own inner truth and increase awareness to those underlying unconscious areas. My goal is to help clients connect with those different parts of themselves in order to gain more clarity and achieve a greater alignment of their mind, body, and spirit.

I use an integrative approach that includes psychosomatic and client-centered therapy to help clients work on understanding their experiences, which may include issues relating to trauma, depression, stress, anxiety and other life challenges.

My experience as a therapist coupled with my background as a certified life coach enables me to use a whole-person approach to help clients explore, feel empowered, and create a plan of action that is tailored to each individual.

When working with couples, I use Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) based on Attachment Theory to help them identify their cycle of behavior and the underlying emotions that drive these actions. I help couples understand and clarify their roles through shifting their perspectives of themselves and each other. By developing mutually effective communication skills, couples will work towards obtaining greater insight and strengthening their connections, which ultimately leads to a deeper and more intimate bond.
