About My Services

In Costa Rica, 'Pura Vida' refers to a way of life characterized by a positive attitude in the face of adversity. My goal is to help you find this resilience.

Sometimes life can be overwhelming and answers to problems are not easy to find. Sessions with me can help you find the clarity that you need to make healthy choices and manage stress. Whether it is anxiety, past trauma or another mental health issue, therapy can help you to see different possibilities for yourself. It can provide the support and insight you need to guide you through the most difficult parts of your life journey and emerge with new strengths, clarity, and capacity for change. I help people to develop the skills to recognize and change self-limiting thought and relationship patterns that can interfere with personal happiness.  My goal is to help you to make changes that move you in the direction of self-discovery, personal growth, and healthy relationships.
