Announcement icon Due to COVID-19 concerns for everyone's safety, I will hold psychotherapy sessions only remotely: on line (FaceTime, WhatsApp); or by phone.
Drawing on a wealth of experience, and on several traditions, I offer effective therapy that is tailored to my clients' needs. I bring to my work a non-judgemental, warm, and interactive style, which helps promote desired change. I work with adult individuals, couples, and adult families, on relationship issues, adjusting to separation, grief, traumatic loss, trauma and PTSD. I also work with work-life balance and burnout, unblocking creativity, anxiety and depression, and managing anger. In addition, I offer consultation services to clinicians.
I blend elements from the following traditions, to respond to my client's unique situation: psychodynamic psychotherapy, trauma therapy, CBT, art therapy, and somatic experiencing. I use EMDR for trauma, PTSD, performance issues, and blocks to creativity.
I offer both brief therapy, and depth-oriented work. For a more detailed description of brief and in-depth psychotherapy, trauma therapy, EMDR, couples' counselling, and clinical consultation, please visit my website.
