I firmly believe that all individuals have something to offer to this world and sometimes one’s realization of this “something” is limited by personal struggles. While suffering is inevitable in this life, it can be managed with the help of family, friends or sometimes professionals. To this end, I seek to provide a therapeutic space within which you have the opportunity to feel heard and understood. I believe in working with people collaboratively with the intention of helping them grow into their own best selves.
Of course, there is a lot of vulnerability involved in sharing your story as you sort through the different parts of yourself and, this process of self-discovery may reveal aspects of yourself that you do not like. While I can’t promise that it is going to be easy, I can guarantee that I will work with you from an empathic, sincere, and compassionate place.
It is with intention that I use the visual image of a lotus flower which emerges from a murky pond and still grows into a beautiful and exquisite plant. In the same manner, individuals coming from painful places have the potential to be happy and to grow into healthy beings.
