I work with individuals, couples and families who seek greater insight into the nature of their lives, deep transformation, greater capacities for self-love and constructive changes in their relationships (with themselves and others). I enjoy working with people who are curious, motivated, intelligent, open and creative. I welcome people of any cultural (including linguistic) background, gender-identity, sexual-orientation and learning style. I recognize that the desire for change is always embedded in the greater social infrastructures of one's life and aim to support you in making changes at all the relevant levels in your life.

I'm a relational, trauma-informed, Somatic Psychotherapist whose work is grounded in attachment theory and interpersonal neurobiology. I am passionate about working with the self-fragmentation that can be due to attachment trauma. In working with couples, I draw from the EFT, AEDP and PACT approaches mixed with principles of Non-Violent Communication (NVC).

I am compassionate and understand what it can be like to feel like you're different or don't fit in. I recognize the importance of a good "therapeutic match" for transformation to take place. I work with you on co-creating a "safe enough" space in which emotions can be felt and you can develop a sense of agency in regards to your own healing process.
