I help my clients to discover their true essence and identify obstacles which prevent them from moving forward.  I strongly believe that when empowered, everyone has the ability to change.  My style is Gestalt based, but I also use other types of modalities such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in order to assist my clients in their journey.  I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, trained in Gestalt Therapy and I am a Certified Rehabilitation Counselor.  I work “out of the box” and rely heavily on creativity in order to achieve success with my clients.

It is most important in our process to establish a rapport on which to build on.  My clients are invited into a warm and comforting environment, devoid of judgements.  We work to find paths that will lead to answers.  We concentrate on the present in mind , body and spirit. Utilizing breath, creative visualizations and guided meditation, we are able to connect our thoughts to our bodies.  


Gestalt therapy is a humanistic therapy technique that focuses on gaining an awareness of emotions and behaviors in the present rather than in the past. The therapist does not interpret experiences for the patient. Instead, the therapist and patient work together to help the patient understand him/herself. This type of therapy focuses on experiencing the present situation rather than talking about what occurred in the past. Patients are encouraged to become aware of immediate needs, meet them, and let them recede into the background. The well-adjusted person is seen as someone who has a constant flow of needs and is able to satisfy those needs.
