About

Welcome and thank you for your interest in my work! Congratulations on taking your first step to a more fulfilling life. I provide warm, safe and collaborative environment for my clients' healing journey. I am here to help you to become more authentic, grounded, and happy with yourself and your relationships. In my work I use client-centered, anti-oppression and culturally-competent framework. I work with individuals, couples and families.
My approach is rooted in Gestalt. Clients and therapists in Gestalt therapy dialogue, that is, communicate their unique perspectives. I addition to Gestalt I integrate into my work insights from Emotionally Focused therapy, Psychodrama, Developmental Psychology, Integral Theory, and Mindfulness Based Stress-Reduction.
I have particular interest and experience in relationships, sexuality, and alternative lifestyles, such as open relationships, polyamory, kink, etc. My approach to sexuality and relationships is sex-positive, open-minded and non-judgmental. I understand the importance of sexual expression and intimacy, and am supportive of my clients' lifestyle choices.
