I enjoy working with clients of all ages and gender to help them learn to cope with their unique psychological, emotional, and physical problems. I am trained in clinical psychology and psychoanalysis as well as in psychosomatics so I am able to treat a wide spectrum of disorders. I tailor my approach to the specific needs of the client rather than trying to make the client fit into a particular theoretical model or to work in a predetermined treatment modality.

Sometimes we have old beliefs that hold us back from living the life we really want. I help clients understand what's holding them back, and guide them along the path forward that feels more authentic for them. I practice from a systems perspective (family system, work system, spiritual system) which I believe enlarges my understanding of my clients.

We all experience difficulties at some point in our lives- this is part of being human. Some people are able to move on and some get "stuck" for reasons that are not always clear. Psychotherapy offers an opportunity to explore these reasons in a safe, accepting environment and inspires personal growth. Therapy itself can be short (a few sessions) or long term, and in successful cases its positive impact lasts a lifetime. For the last 20 years I've helped individuals who struggled with depression, anxiety, relationship or parenting issues, low self-esteem and more to reach their goals.
