My story is as unique as yours. My academic background began with an undergraduate degree in Law from the Catholic University of Andres Bello in Caracas, Venezuela. I am a lawyer who loves helping people.
I’ve spent years working in the corporate world; simultaneously, I received psychotherapy training to counsel people in my free time.
In 2007, my family and I migrated to Canada to begin and complete an Honors Master’s Degree in Divinity from McMaster University. This degree allowed me to combine and apply disciplines learned from my previous years of study and practice.
I see myself as one who works alongside you, providing direction, tools, motivation, and encouragement in your journey of self-discovery. Occasionally, it is helpful to pause in this pilgrimage, see what’s working, what’s not, what really matters, and the best routes to get to your goals.
During the last 16 years, I’ve worked with people’s diverse needs. Knowledgeable in Mindfulness, Lifeskills Counseling, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, and Prayer ministry.
I have a proven track record of effective results and positive outcomes with clients.
I am working for you. I hear you with my heart. I pursue your needs and desires for counseling in a kind, genuine and compassionate friendly demeanor. I emphasize self-awareness because insight produces peace, reduces shame, and promotes change.
Together we will create a plan to address the areas you want to change, learn skills to cope with, and accept the things that we can’t change. I believe therapy is a working partnership, so I check in occasionally to encourage a little push if my clients are feeling stuck.
I have always considered myself a life-long learner. In my free time, I am always studying, reading articles. During my free time, I deeply enjoy walking in nature and meditating with a grateful heart on the beauty of life.
