As a clinical psychologist, I help people deal with difficult feelings, such as anxiety, depression, anger, guilt and shame. Also, help them to overcome traumatic experiences and establish post traumatic growth. As a solution-focused and multi-modal therapist, my goal is to help people flourish, uncover their true potential, increase health and quality of life. While we can't change the reality of difficult situations from the past, we can definitely change our view of them, effectively and constructively.
