EMDR Therapy

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a powerful scientifically researched method of psychotherapy for the treatment of many distressing circumstances such as PTSD, trauma, anxiety, panic attacks, depression and complicated grief. It has helped millions of people get relief from psychological suffering. 


Play Therapy

Play is fun, creative, and enjoyable for all of us but it is vital for the healthy physical, social, academic and psychological development of children.  


Sandplay Therapy

Sandplay is a form of depth therapy based on C.G. Jung’s analytical psychology. It was developed by Dora Kallf during World War II, and emerged from the psyches of children rather than from books and research.

Parent Coaching

Transformational Parenting Program

Transformational Parenting Program (TPP) is a one-of-a-kind parent coaching program with focuses on supporting parents to  become conscious, confident and empowered parents who can handle any challenging parenting situation. 

TPP uses principles from transformational leadership as its framework which helps parents become influential, loving and kind leaders of their family who show up for their children in ways that causes positive changes in  the kids behaviors. 


Yoga is an ancient practice with the intention to calm the mind so one can focus on the present moment which is truly the only moment where reality exists. It is in the experience of the here-and-now that we can connect with the life force itself and be blessed by the abundance of vitality and love regardless of our present circumstances. 

Yoga means to "yoke" or to join things together. It is an integrative practice that not only includes moving the body in certain ways to create beautiful shapes called Asanas, but to also bring about serenity of the mind and stay attuned to "The Glory of the Self" (Bhagavad Gita) which is the part in us the transcends ego-boundaries and connects us to the Infinite.
