"My early training as an artist, art therapist and body therapist as well as my spiritual practice of more than forty-five years, informs my work as a psychotherapist with individuals, couples and groups. I work with a range of issues, having integrated many models of therapy. The core of my work is the relationship that the client and I co-create together. When a client feels seen, heard, received and respected, a container of trust and safety is created. This process is essential for clients to explore the issues that bring them to therapy and to do the inner work of healing."
