"I have been working successfully with depression, anxiety, PTSD, somatic and body image issues since the year 2000. I work in the present moment, attentive to content, process and relational aspects of the session. Aside from talk therapy, I facilitate change through experiential exercises such as meditation, movement, body and somatic awareness, gestalt role play, EMDR and cognitive and behavioral mindfulness. I am interested in how contact boundaries can be restored and built to a healthy state, creating a stronger and confident self."
