Every person is unique, and what one needs to heal and feel whole is also unique. I see each of my clients as the individuals that they are, and work with them using the method and process best for their healing and personal growth. Therapy is a process where alchemy can occur; together we can allow for this process, and the healing begins here. I use a Client Centered approach and integrate Family Systems, Dreamwork, EMDR, play therapy, and some astrology if the client requests this.
I specialize in helping people return to wholeness. I work with people toward gaining insight on their personal growth, and to move past any blocks and trauma that may be holding them back from living their fullest life. I am trained in EMDR, attachment focused by the Parnell Institute, and incorporate this in my work when needed.
If you are looking to begin therapy, or are simply curious about it, I would be happy to have a phone or in person consultation. I see individuals of all life stages, couples, families, and teens .I am a native English speaker and am fluent in Italian, and proficient in Spanish.
