I specialize in empowering women to heal old psycho-sexual conditioning by accessing their body’s innate erotic intelligence and sense of wholeness, and to fully embody their feminine power and live as sexually sovereign beings.
I love to work with people who are tired of feeling stuck or weighed down by old patterns and are ready to transform their lives and thrive. Together, we explore the obstacles and find creative ways around or through them. My experience as an artist, meditator, and former body and energy healing practitioner allows me to approach therapy in a creative and transformative way. As a Registered Expressive Arts Therapist (REAT), I am incorporating creative expression in my work, allowing the client to access their inner truth not only verbally, but through the various non-verbal channels of expression- visual, movement, voice, or music.

I'm an experienced therapist of over 25 years having spent thousands of counseling hours with individuals, couples and groups. Women 's issues such as sexual abuse, miscarriage, abortion, traumatic events, marital/relationship issues, depression, anxiety, grief and PTSD - are my specialty. I have counseled hundreds of couples to improve communication, intimacy/connection issues, trust; and to heal from infidelity, addictions and wounds that threaten the relationship. Issues of teens and young adults are important to address early in life: school, career, sexuality, relationships, traumas. Better to get help sooner than later!

I have seen couples rediscover intimacy and connection, women heal from past hurts, adults break free from stress and anxiety, and families grow closer.
Are you tired of facing the same struggle, over and over again? The same marriage problems...the same anxious feeling when you wake up and go to sleep...the same stress that never leaves you in peace...the same sense of hopelessness and loneliness. You've tried to feel better - to improve things - but nothing ever changes and you're right back where you started. I can help. I specialize in helping people to leave behind the struggles, patterns and habits that keep their lives stuck on repeat, opening the door to a life of connection, wholeness and peace.

I specialize in couples therapy and supporting women . In my work with women I help create space where you can freely give yourself permission to be where you are and offer love and kindness to yourself. I will support you to step into a place of deeper authenticity and strength. Old patterns of thinking or ways of viewing the world may no longer be serving you but you can choose to hold space for what serves and say no thank you to what does not.

Invest in yourself and your loved ones; therapy is not just a mental health treatment sought when we are suffering from mental distress, or unable to conduct life as wanted. Therapy is also a self discovery process to get a greater and deeper knowledge about ourselves, which will allow to make better choices and become the person that we have wished. Having someone to accompany you in this path, with a professional perspective, non-judgmental listening and accurate interventions, will allow you to cope with painful circumstances, significant life changes / transitions, as well with symptoms of anxiety, depression, PTSD and others.

I think therapy is always a good idea. Crisis, however, is often what leads us into therapy, and I believe that it is a call and an opportunity to look deeply, not only into our "problems" but, into ourselves. My approach is non-pathologizing, relational, and grounded in Jungian theory. I work with a variety of concerns with a special interest in spirituality, identity discovery, developmental and transitional adjustments, grief, loss, depression, chronic and palliative illness. I believe that every person has an innate capacity for healing and I am interested in helping people find theirs.

Are you ready to transform your life and your relationships? To pick up the shattered pieces and reassemble them in a more beautiful way? To explore issues related to sexuality, partnership, and family? By reclaiming the forgotten parts of the self, we move towards wholeness. It is time to make peace with the past, to learn to live in the present moment, and gain clarity of vision for a future worth living. By turning towards our suffering in a safe environment, we can transform our wounds into a source of beauty and strength. It is possible to live a life deeply connected to ourselves, our families, our loved ones, and the Earth.
