My clients are from diverse backgrounds who have experienced traumatic events that are adversely impacting their personal sense of who they are, their relationships, both personal and professional. The clients are seeking to make sense of their lived experiences and recover their agency and power to live a wholesome life with dignity and respect. My clients usually have a history of intergenerational violence and come to therapy for resolving issues such as historic and current sexual violence, intimate relational violence, trafficking, trauma related to war and conflict, workplace violence, discrimination and harassment.

I am a survivor, who has integrated her experiences of violence. I am a highly competent psychotherapist trained in different forms of therapy, such as clinical traumatology, EMDR, cognitive therapy, feminist therapy, emotional freedom technique, EFT and other humanistic therapies. I can facilitate trauma recovery with compassion and care.

I can bear witness and facilitate healing guided by the belief that clients lose their agency through 'no fault of their own' and can regain their sense of wellbeing. I combine mindfulness, breath awareness, yogic breathing to facilitate the process of disrupting the triangulation of the past, present and future. I coach, model and teach life skills.
