Therapies Offered

Person Centered Therapy

My personal, clinical, and researcher background taught me the necessity of realizing our own wounded parts and reaching out to our clients from a place of compassion and understanding. We all have unique life experiences that bring us joy, happiness, or sadness, anger, and fear upon remembering them. In the therapeutic process, I witness each clients’ wounded parts and their courage to share them with me. Opening up one’s to another person and exploring all these wounded parts require a nurturing, compassionate, and of course safe environment. If you’d like to explore your inner wounds and improve your relationship with yourself and others, I would like to hear from you.
