About Me

Hi! I am a Licensed (North Carolina) Professional Counselor with experience in different environments and diverse  cultures.
Since 2005 I have been providing individual, family and children therapy to treat mood disorders, anxiety and adjustment disorders, first in Massachusetts and for the last 7 years in this beautiful Port City, Wilmington.  As a result of my experience I have several interests in special the correlation between emotional blocks and illnesses.

In order to be better prepared to help my clients, I am constantly studying and acquiring new tools to apply in my practice.

I received my certification in AIT (Advanced Integrative Therapy) from the AIT Institute
http://www.aitherapy.org/wp/find-an-ait-therapist/
AIT is a powerful energy psychology that is particularly efective at removing the effects of emotional trauma. My main interest is the correlation between trauma and illnesses. For that reason, I have been trained in specialized tracks of the AIT training. In order to learn more about this new integrative therapy please email me.

I received my certification as a  Redecision Therapist from The Southeast Institute for Group and Family Therapy in Chapel Hill, NC.  Redecision Therapy combines elements of Transactional Analysis, Gestalt Therapy and Cognitive Therapy. Using positive strokes, encouragement and bringing the past into the present, I coach my clients to change paths from decisions made at a young age, that no longer serve them in the present.
Redecision therapy is a powerful therapy based on the principle of achieving authenticity. Everyone is born to be a winner, has the capacity to think and change.

In my search for the new,  I went to Boston to be trained in the Mind and Body Program for Infertility at the world renowned Boston IVF Clinic with Dr. Alice Domar. Before adopting a Redecision approach,  I also had the pleasure of being part of an intensive traning at the Beck Institute of Cognitive Therapy with the founder of Cognitive therapy, Dr. Aaron Beck and his daughter, Dr. Judith Beck.
