Hi! Are you tired of being stuck in a rut or can’t get out of your own way? Do you want deeper connnections with others and with yourself? Is your inner critic interfering with enjoying life? Do you want to resolve past traumas and painful memories? Are you craving more sexual intimacy and/or understanding of your sexual self? I will work compassionately and collaboratively with you to heal and develop different patterns and ways of thinking. I will listen carefully to your story and provide your space to increase your awareness, get in touch with your emotions and provide you practical strategies for change.
I am trained in trauma treatment, couple therapy, sex therapy, relational therapy and psychedelic assisted therapy. Therapy with me is a collaborative experience and I will honor your inner potential for growth and change. We will work together to understand how you became the person you are with the struggles you have, so you can forge new pathways.
I have lived and travelled all over the world from a young age; experiences that increased my understanding of the impact of environment, migration and culture on mental health. Therapy is a leap of faith and building a trusting relationship takes time. I offer you my kindness, openness, broad knowledge and experience to facilitate your process.

Many people I work with struggle with their moods and their relationships. Unresolved painful memories are often at work in the background. When we first meet I will listen carefully to how you understand what is going on for you and how you are feeling. I will ask you questions about your family, both present and past. I will make space for you and any aspects of you that are kept hidden.

I have an open, relational approach to therapy. How we do together is essential to your healing. I bring compassion and careful observation. Therapy techniques I use are EMDR, a model for reprocessing trauma and painful experiences. I utilize guided imagery. I focus on emotion, because that is often what we most suppress to our detriment. I give strategies so you can practice at home.
