About

I'm an integrative psychotherapist working with individuals and couples. My approach is engaged and caring, providing a safe and supportive environment, where you can reflect and develop new ways of handling challenges you are facing. The focus of my practice is threefold: relationship issues, life transitions (e.g. themes like change in relationship, career changes, relocation, changes in values and morals, and loss as well as seeking more meaning and fulfillment in life), and healing from physical/emotional abuse.
I draw from my background in depth psychological training and study as well as combining a somatic based approach. I also will utilize other forms of therapy including gestalt, EMDR, humanistic/person-centered, and psychoanalytic.
My goal is to help integrate your experiences on a soul-level, coming back to Self, and returning to the greater community with a sense of safety and trust in relationship.
