I believe in self-efficacy and in trying different therapy approaches that fits the client’s unique needs. I am trained holistic healer with a strong and diverse background, using different treatment modalities, as a therapist to heal and brainstorm solutions for my clients.
I believe everybody is unique in his or her own way, and that, it is wrong to judge people. We all have something to give despite our past. We let go of our past issues and find closure, so that they do not dictate our present and future. We find a way to live again with ourselves and our loved ones. I am cash based for now, I offer a sliding fee scale and payment plans.
