A Place for Healing and Transformation...
A Healing Approach to Helping...

Whether you are facing difficulties in an intimate relationship or are facing a challenging life situation I can assist you in gaining clarity, balance and reconnecting with the joy in life and relationships.

My approach in both couples and individual therapy is to help clients learn how to connect in a healing, non-judgmental way to what is happening in the present moment.It's about doing something different, not just talking about it! Learning how to be compassionate towards yourself and others during stressful and challenging times is the key to finding balance and peace in life.

As a Certified Imago Relationship Therapist I have experience helping couples learn to transform their relationship from destructive and hurtful to a place of healing and growth. All relationships have the potential to be healthy, supportive and intimate however there are times when we need the support and guidance of a third party to learn a new way of connecting. This is where I can be of help. During an Imago session I help couples learn how to let go of defensive behaviors such as criticism, sarcasm and stonewalling and learn how to listen and connect through understanding, empathy and support. Using structured exercises I guide couples on how they can develop a more intimate,supportive and loving relationship. I am passionate and committed towards helping couples and individuals build on their strengths and learn to create healthy balanced and empowered life.

I also provide experiential workshops for couples and individuals where I teach the art of communication, compassion, curiosity and connection. In the workshops couples learn to approach conflict in a different way and connect with each other through listening to understand and learning how to have empathy towards each other; this helps couples to develop and sustain loving, supportive and healthy relationship. In my Women's Retreat Day Events I lead participants in learning the practice of Self Care; how to take a healing approach towards dealing with the challenges in life, how to be assertive, value themselves, set boundaries and achieve their goals.

I believe that providing a compassionate, non-judgmental approach is what helps empower men/women, couples and teens to create a balanced and joyful life!

Education/Training
I obtained my Bachelor's Degree in Psychology from St. Thomas University and attained a Master's Degree in Mental Health Counseling from Nova Southeastern University . Wanting to expand my knowledge about how to help Couples/Marital Relationships I became an Imago Relationship Therapist and was trained in this special approach to helping couples develop healthy, intimate and successful relationships by the Institute for Imago Relationship Therapy.

I'm also a Mindfulness and Yoga Instructor and teach students the practice of mindfulness; staying in the present moment and learning how to let go of thoughts, let go of control and instead learn how to be compassionate towards whatever they are facing in their life. This is a very healing approach and helps clients learn how to bring balance, clarity and connect with joy!
