Welcome to my online counseling world!

If you're looking for a therapeutic experience that sparks curiosity and enhances self-awareness, or if you enjoy delving deeper into understanding yourself and addressing core issues, then you've come to the right place. This is not about superficial exploration, but about delving into the depths. It's for those who are passionate about doing the work with compassion!

Embark on a Journey of Self-Exploration

Everyone has a story of their lives that impacts them TODAY!

I specialize in Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapy  self-meaning-based therapy, and mind-body and meditation therapy. I also love to use expressive creative techniques and journaling. The exploration can have a general spiritual element incorporating higher consciousness themes.

Self-meaning based therapy uncovers the unique meanings you assign to your experiences and how these shape your sense of self. By exploring and reinterpreting early memories and their impact, we can address the root causes of your emotional challenges and foster personal growth. IFS therapy delves deeper into your internal system, increasing awareness and harmony among the inner parts that make up you! 

Inclusive and Supportive Environment

I am open-minded and inclusive! I am committed to providing a safe, respectful, and empathetic space where your journey toward healing and self-discovery is honored. I am also laid-back, approachable, and have a healthy sense of humor. I aim to support you in navigating life's challenges with greater clarity, strength, and resilience. My hope is that you will feel supported in your own inner exploration. 

Guidance Through Your Inner Intuition 

I firmly believe that within each individual lies the innate wisdom to guide their own unique path in this world.

Overview of Anxiety Management Sessions

You can take the anxiety management sessions as an individual or as a couple. The format is still one-on-one but semi-structured, with a beginning, middle, and end date.

Impact of Anxiety on Relationships

Anxiety can have a profound impact on relationships, causing tension, misunderstandings, and even distance. That's why it's important for couples to work together to manage anxiety and build a stronger, more resilient relationship.

Couples Anxiety Management Sessions

The Couples Anxiety Management sessions provide a supportive and educational environment where you and your partner can learn about anxiety, its causes, and how to manage it effectively together.

Ideas

  • Learn coping mechanisms: You and your partner will learn practical and effective coping mechanisms that can help you manage anxiety as a team.

  • Practice mindfulness and self-compassion techniques: By learning mindfulness techniques together, you will learn how to be present in the moment and reduce anxiety in your relationship.

  • Build a stronger bond: By working together to manage anxiety, you will strengthen your bond and improve communication in your relationship.

Holistic Approach to Managing Anxiety

I believe in taking a holistic approach to anxiety management for couples. In the Couples Anxiety Management Class, you and your partner will not only learn practical coping mechanisms but learn how to navigate the physical impact of anxiety for an overall more resilient impact for your health and your relationship.

Premarital and Precommitment Enrichment Programs

I provide premarital or precommitment psychoeducational couple enrichment programs comprising four distinct types aimed at strengthening your relationship. These structured sessions are designed to enhance the connection between couples by exploring conflict management, communication, and the development of awareness of both one's partner and oneself. Based on the book "The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work," in addition to prepare/enrich and couples institute, these sessions are conducted privately, similar to traditional couple's therapy.

Psychoeducational Counseling Approach

The psychoeducational counseling approach focuses on imparting knowledge and skills, while simultaneously offering support and accountability to practice the skills learned. Implementing new skills can be challenging, and to ease this process, I offer personal feedback and support throughout the program. The psychoeducational format is also less intimidating, providing a comfortable start for couples who may not yet be ready for traditional therapy.

Ongoing Support and Counseling

Moreover, even after the program is over, I continue to offer counseling to ensure that the skills learned are continually practiced and strengthened.

Long-term Benefits of Relationship Investment

Research reveals that happy couples have lower rates of anxiety, depression, and substance abuse, and their children are more likely to experience the positive effects. By investing in your relationship now, you can create a healthier and happier future for both you and your family.
