I am an experienced, emphatic, and versatile psychotherapist. I received a Master of Arts in Psychology from the Illinois School of Professional Psychology, where I specialized in Counseling Psychology. I completed the Gottman Couples Therapy Training (Level I), a groundbreaking method that helps couples build lasting relationships.
I also, completed the Externship in Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy (EFT). Also known as emotion-focused therapy and process-experiential therapy, is a usually short-term (8–20 sessions) structured psychotherapy approach to working with individuals, couples, or families.
Recently, I became certified in the Daring Way™ and Rising Strong™ methodology.
The Daring Way™ is a highly experiential methodology based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown. The method was designed for work with individuals, couples, families, work teams, and organizational leaders. It can be facilitated in clinical, educational, and professional settings.
In addition to my academic training, I embraced new modalities of treatment. Soon, I discovered that emotional memories are stored in the body and that they have specific ways of manifesting themselves. Due to my belief in the human body’s sensory intelligence and awareness, I discovered the power of movement to express emotions and to heal. My love for emotional expression and movement led me to discover Nia. Through Nia intensive training, Nia continuing education, and Conscious Embodiment training, I have continued my professional and personal growth. My curiosity about body’s capacity to help emotional healing helped me to discover and train in Body-Mind Psychotherapy (BMP). Body-Mind Psychotherapy (BMP) is a somatic-cognitive approach to psychotherapy developed by Susan Aposhyan which is uniquely focused on physiology, neuroscience, and early motor development.
