Personal Statement

I have extensive experience working with clients dealing with multicultural identity issues and Third Culture Kids. I have developed a uniquely integrative approach to Psychotherapy resulting from my training and experience as a therapist and a religious minister. I am a systemic-oriented therapist with the purpose to provide support and practical feedback to help clients effectively address personal life challenges. I integrate complementary methodologies and techniques to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each customer. With compassion and understanding, I work with each to help them build on their strengths and attain the personal growth they are committed to accomplishing.
