Philosophy of Care

In my clinical practice, I emphasize an approach in which we take the time to care for ourselves. I see it as an essential and integral part to our inner-health toward learning to live a life that is well-balanced in all areas. 

My purpose is to help and assist you in improving and enriching your inner understanding and awareness to better cope, manage and transform feelings, thoughts and behaviors. Through support and guidance as a foundation that allows the build up toward reconnecting with your past strengths, to improve your present abilities is key in my clinical approach toward helping you make positive healthy changes toward your life goals. 

I believe everyone deserves supportive, respectful and holistic care.

Things to Remember

“ Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world” Harriet Tubman

“I don’t know how my story will end, but nowhere in my text will it ever read, I gave up ”. 

“Don’t feel bad for making decisions that upset other people. You’re not responsible for their happiness, you’re responsible for yours”.

“A dream written down with a date becomes a goal. A goal broken down into steps becomes a plan. A plan backed by action becomes reality”.
