My approach to psychotherapy is holistic. I not only treat the "tip of the iceberg" problems, but also address the deeper, "bottom of the ocean," issues. I treat the whole person and honor the mind-body-spirit connections, taking into account the client's cultural, religious and ethnic background, ancestry, race and immigration history. I recognize the complexity of each person's history and circumstances and employ a wide variety of techniques to guide my clients in their self-discovery.

I strongly believe that the most healing aspect of therapy is directly related to the safe connection with the therapist. Trainings inform the therapy but only feeling safe and seen will provide the ground for deep exploration and emergence of the new... almost like a birthing process. Client based, my style is warm, compassionate, nonetheless, assertive. Experience and various trainings keep supporting the importance of breath, grounded presence and mindfulness in any therapeutic setting and healing/life process. Therefore, those are central to my work. My sessions combines several psychotherapy approaches together with various somatic practices such as bioenergetics, movement, mindfulness & trauma work.

If you struggle to stop or reduce substance use or other addictive behaviors, I can help. I use a harm reduction approach to understanding and treating substance use and abuse. Instead of focusing only on one’s addiction, this approach explores other contributing factors, such as co-occurring mental illnesses, family relationships, and medical problems. It encourages the client to explore their unique needs and background, and to develop their own treatment goals, which may involve moderation management, in addition to abstinence. I also offer treatment for other impulse control disorders, such as sex addiction.

We can't change our destination overnight but we can change our direction. A deep and felt understanding of how and why we live our lives can allow us to reorient ourselves to a more fulfilling life. I believe that therapeutic treatment must be tailored to each individual person seeking change. I work with adults who have endured trauma, feel anxious or depressed. I see couples that have drifted apart, struggle with anger, parenting difficulties and adolescents overwhelmed with the highs and lows of emerging adulthood. I also work with expectant parents and infant parent dyads having difficulty connecting with each other.

If you are feeling alone, lost, angry, depressed, you are right where you need to be. Part of embracing your true self involves a process of shedding beliefs, assumptions, and habits that are constricting and learning to express what you’ve censured. At a young age, we learned to shut down feelings, wishes, and impulses that were not pleasing to our parents and society. This allows us to gain acceptance, but it constricts our spontaneity and playfulness. I will join my clients on their journey to discover where they lost touch with their inner child and help them to rediscover the most authentic version of their self.
