    My Story

    One day, my best friend looked at me and said: “I think you need to see a professional…” We were paying the bill at this quaint Lebanese restaurant, and I was all tears and runny mascara after confiding in her about my inability to overcome some personal issues. It was a turning moment in my adult life, and I am forever grateful to her.

    The following week I began seeing a wonderful therapist. Everyone’s path in therapy is different, and mine started with insight. Why do I think the way I do? What experiences helped or hindered me becoming myself? Gaining insight was fascinating, and it culminated with me recognizing my strengths and using them to move forward changing things that I could and accepting those I could not.

    The therapeutic experience was so determinant in my life, that I decided to change careers. Having held a position of leadership for over 15 years, I know first-hand the challenges of maintaining a high-level performance while going through hard personal issues. Research shows that anxiety, depression and stress are the predominant factors in decreased performance and personal dissatisfaction. In my sessions, I hold a space for you to reflect and deepen your self-awareness so that you can explore your situation with more clarity. As sessions progress, you will find a more functional way of dealing with your struggles and will experience decreased levels of stress and anxiety. I practice from a strengths-based approach, making sure your personal characteristics are great allies, instead of stumbling blocks in your personal and professional life.

    Today, I invite you to a better tomorrow. We can’t change the things that happen to us, but we can change the way we experience them. That is the potential of our sessions. Book a free 30 min meeting with me today on the link below.
