Therapist in Coral Springs…
I am a compassionate and experienced Couples and Individual therapist. I’m committed to helping clients learn to face life challenges in ways that lead to personal growth and emotional healing.
How I Can Help You
The initial consultation is an opportunity to explore the challenges and pain youin your life and how I can best help you. It is also a compassionate first step towards helping yourself.
Depression is more than just a feeling of sadness and can affect all areas of our lives. Reaching out for help, though challenging, is a vital first step towards emotional healing and wholeness.
Untreated Anxiety can have a detrimental effect on our physical, mental and emotional health. Learning mindful ways to calm the body and mind, helps us restore balance, gain clarity of mind and reconnect with joy.
When conflict arises in Intimate Relationships, couples often act in ways (i.e. infidelity, addiction, stonewalling and defensiveness) that intensify pain and can increase disconnection. Using Imago Relationship Therapy, helps couples learn to soften defensiveness/reactivity, speak from the heart and express empathy for each other. This leads to deeper intimacy, joy and passion
Yoga and Mindfulness
These contemplative practices help alleviate mental, emotional and physical stress. As we deepen our practice, we learn to shift from reacting to life (i.e. ourselves, others, the world) to respond in ways that are healing, balanced and compassionate.
Retreats & Workshops
These events are an opportunity to disconnect from the everyday hustle and bustle of daily life and explore healing practices that help us to connect with joy, playfulness and inner peace.

The women’s retreat was an unexpected gift .I shared my day with a small group of women, I shared my experiences, I laughed and played like a child, stretched away my tensions and left with a sense of renewed peacefulness. Good things come in unexpected packages! Hope to see everyone again soon.K.B.
