Announcement icon Due to the COVID-19 emergency, I am offering virtual sessions for current and NEW clients. Please don't hesitate to ask for help!
If you are facing a crisis or difficult time, are tired of being in pain, not find what you want or need, don't know what to do with your partner, child, boss...situation, or simply want to improve your life, contact me. I will help you change your life! I work with depression & anxiety, trauma, relationships therapy (dating, marriage & couples counseling, intimacy problems), eating disorders & body image and healthy eating, maternity and postpartum, parenting and attachment, and grief due to break-ups, perinatal loss, and divorce. I am also devoted to the field of positive psychology and support people during common life transitions.
With more than 10 years of experience, I consider intuition, personal journey, and extensive trainings my biggest strenghts. My approach incorporates the latest research from the fields of psychology and neuroscience. In addition to traditional psychotherapy concepts such as bringing unconscious material to consciousness, I practice techniques that change the brain for the long-term.
The techniques I use include cognitive-behavioral therapy, relational attachment based therapy, psychodynamic insight oriented interpretation and experiential emotionally focus approaches: EMDR, the cutting edge treatment for trauma and Internal Family Systems, the psychotherapy approach to resolve deep-seated emotional issues. I offer empathic listening but I also play an active role in the sessions.
