Message to clients

Life isn’t perfect, never has been and never will be. Sometimes it’s very terrifying and sometimes it’s absolutely marvelous. But appreciating life as it happens needs some good skills. We all have struggles, but eliminating the hindrance that keep us from being positive, thriving and happy requires a lot of work and a group of dedicated people within our support system. Let’s be real and not just focus on positive aspects of life. The whole universe is full of light and darkness.

When your life is turned upside down and you don't know how to carry on, your biggest question is "who will be there to support me"! Keeping your life balanced needs a well balanced mind, and a strong heart. We need some encouragements to accomplish our goals.

When we struggle to overcome the most difficult times of the darkest days of our life, we need compassion and caring hands, we need someone with empathy and understanding to guide us pass through barriers and obstacles. We need someone so we can trust without having a fear of being judged.

My theoretical perspective is holistic and I enjoy incorporating different approaches and techniques to each therapy session tailored into the specific needs of my clients including life-coaching, proper diet, exercise, spiritual contentedness, career-coaching, goal-settings and good social support. At our center I offer individual, couples and group therapy for adults and adolescents.
