My approach is collaborative, warm, and challenging. I work psychodynamically, and also focus on the integration of the mind and body.

"Do you feel out of sorts, weighed down, stressed by everyday life or by some specific issue that you don't seem to be able to resolve? I can help by identifying with you what is getting in the way and preventing you from fulfilling your aspirations or reaching your goals. I'll help you focus on the alterations needed so life becomes happy, serene and exciting. It is often how we think that prevents us from finding solutions.
