Point of View: I work with professionals in business, healthcare, and education, emerging adults, and university students to increase their abilities for identity development, social growth, and professional and academic achievement. My focus lies at the intersection of education, psychology, and social entrepreneurship to help you meet goals and a build life of worth across all domains.
I believe that the human capacities for hope, faith, and optimism are present in everyone, and that these capacities can be cultivated through DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy). This therapy offers targeted, practical strategies to help you reach your goals.
You deserve to develop your most authentic self, by becoming more mindful of the context of the present moment and by developing an array of strategies that can help you tolerate stress, regulate your emotions, and build high quality relationships. You deserve to tap into and develop your inherent wisdom. I want to help you with the process of empowering yourself to make decisions clearly and to be more effective in your thinking, acting, and doing. I want to help you recognize all of the areas where you have strength and teach you how you can use your gifts to make improvements in areas of need.
It is exciting for me to help people become more reflective, and more motivated towards, and more skilled at making change in their lives.
I want to give you more options to choose from in various aspects of your life and help increase your skills at evaluating and selecting from these options. My goal is to help you improve your level of resilience, self-concept, self-worth, self-esteem, and self-efficacy.
In all, my aim is to help you be you. Let’s begin the process.

I believe in the human capacities for hope, faith, and optimism. These capacities can be learned. DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy) can be a helpful way for many to learn them. I believe that the learning can take place in an environment that incorporates joy and seriousness. I believe in the power of the journey to create a more authentic self. When it comes to understanding Executives, Business Professionals, Emerging Adults, Educators, and University Students, I can relate on multiple levels, because I have been them all and I have worked with all of those populations.
