About

I came to Gestalt Psychotherapy after a decade of teaching yoga and meditation workshops in Canada, Greece, Mexico and Nicaragua. I noticed that wisdom practices (such as meditation, yoga, breath-work, and reflection) lead people to face vulnerability and perhaps even pain inside their minds, hearts and bodies. Many people have insights about themselves, but they believe they can mentally figure it out on their own. We are not meant to do all the processing on our own. The therapeutic relationship allows us the support of a compassionate and trained witness so we can explore what is present.
My approach is self-compassionate and trauma-informed. I am currently in a mentorship program with Dr. Gabor Mate where I am trained to work with addictions and childhood trauma. I take an open, honest and relational approach to therapy. In each session, you can clarify what specific aspect you would like to explore today and that can change as you wish.
I have been described as a therapist that offers a place that feels wide and safe to explore all sorts of sensations and feelings. Meditation, yoga and wisdom practices do influence my work. In my own life, I practice daily as an invitation of the mysterious into my work. If this way of working speaks to you, please contact me to book a free consultation.
