Have you been feeling very sad, depressed, extremely anxious or paralyzed by fear or worry?
Are there painful memories or events from your past that do not allow you to enjoy life right now?
Have you lost a loved one and are still grieving their absence deeply?
Are you new to this city or country and still adapting to a new culture?
Those are just a few of the most common situations I have helped people overcome in my 16 years as a Family Therapist. My primary focus at this moment is working with women who are motivated to work towards a more fulfilling life . Additionally, being licensed as a Family Therapist means that I am also experienced in working with children, adolescents, men, women, couples and families. It also means that even if I see you individually I am thinking in terms of “the system” (your family unit) taking into consideration how your family history contributed to who you are and how you feel today. As a Family Therapist I can help you with your own struggles in the context of your relationships.
Here is a more comprehensive list of issues I can help you overcome:
Anxiety, panic attacks

- thoughts about suicide/self harm
