If you are engaged, married, or exploring a lifelong commitment to your current partner, premarital counseling is a great investment to prepare for your future marriage and ensure a long-term, healthy relationship. I am certified with the PREPARE/ENRICH program, which offers research-based assessments and tools to equip you with strategies and a deeper understanding of your relationship. As a licensed therapist, I provide individually tailored counseling combined with the PREPARE/ENRICH method to offer a comprehensive approach to achieving your goals as a couple.
Topics covered during our sessions include:
Children & Parenting
Family & Friends
I offer 45-mins Individual counseling which is one-on-one therapy focused in providing clients with nonjudgemental, safe, and confidential environment to explore individuals feelings, beliefs and behaviors. As we are a complex being, I focus on providing holistic approach combined with cognitive behavioral therapy(CBT) in individual therapy to work through challenging experiences, identify aspects of lives that you would like to change, set personal goals and work towards in promoting well balanced life.
I typically offer 1 hour Family/Couples counseling. Please reach out to discuss about the process.
Did you know that group counseling really work? Individuals coming together to work on a common problem is as effective as individual therapy. The benefits are following:
1. Realize you're not alone
2. Give/Receive support
3. Cultivate compassion
4. Gain inner comfort and find your voice
Stay tuned for our upcoming support group.
what you can expect
In my practice, I support my clients to feel accepted, validated with no judgement. In order to promote healing, growth, and connections, I sit through difficult emotions until self-acceptance and self-compassion is communicated and received in a safe space. This therapy process is not always easy, often times if feels worse before it feels better. According to Brene Brown, Vulnerability is defined as "uncertainty, risk, and emotional exposure, but it is also the birthplace of love, belonging, joy, courage, empathy and creative." I will walk with you through the difficult journey where you will be challenged to courageously unpack emotional baggages and find comfort in self-acceptance. In this way, you will find inner wisdom, resiliency & strengths that may bring a sense of freedom, liberation, connection to self and others. “Out of your vulnerabilities will come your strength” Sigmund Freud.
