Bio
I first entered psychotherapy at 23 after the death of my mother , the force which empowered our family system.
Entering therapy is one of the best decision I ever made as I was made aware of the Family of Origin issues which had negatively affected my self esteem , my sense of identity and my ability to express my gifts and talents in the world as I was paralyzed by fear, anxiety and sadness.

I sold my beautiful sports car to pay for my therapy and have never regretted it. My Corvette could not fill my emptiness.I looked great in the car, but inside myself I was a sad, lonely, lost soul. Not anymore!!!

I found my true self and a path of spirituality and mindfulness which I have followed through the years and share with my clients. I became a psychotherapist to help others heal themselves so they would not be sentenced to a life of unhappiness , loneliness and lack of serenity.
