"I offer a safe, non-judgmental, healing space, to help you understand your soul's unique journey. Do you feel stuck, in conflict or in a crisis? Are you feeling overwhelmed, anxious, or maybe defeated by depression? When you find that talk-only therapy is not shifting you, then you are ready to work at a deeper, core level, working with the implicit memory or history that is in your body. I am a guide that can help you to find your true soul essence and grounded authentic self. This form of body / soul healing and psycho-therapeutic inquiry can support you if you experience • Stress. A difficult life transition • Or a critical illness • Challenging relationships or communication problems • Self-esteem or self-image issues • Emotional or physical abuse • Depression, grief or loss • Despair, hopeless or stuck • Fear, anxiety or panic attacks • Difficulty to feel love, joy or pleasure • Addictions or shame • Accessing or managing anger, or affect regulation • Healthy boundary development or how to say ‘No’ • Emotional or physical trauma • PTSD symptoms • Disconnected or confused spirituality issues • Ungrounded spirituality."

" My therapy practice is Relationally Focused, which means that it is the co-created relationship between us that is the healing force of the therapy. Moreover, the therapeutic sessions draw upon our experiences of the past and these sessions bring to light how these experiences get replayed in the present often without our knowing. Whether it is a toxic relationship that keeps repeating over and over in our lives, whether it is the same debilitating anxiety that keeps getting in the way of our moving forward, or depression that casts a shadow over our prospects of joy; these past life experiences (whether in childhood or older) keep"

I believe, however, that we have the strength to meet these challenges head on, overcome our blocks, and ultimately benefit from these opportunities for growth.
