About

My style is collaborative, compassionate and non formulaic. Together, we decide what the issues are and how to tackle them. A special focus of my practice is with creative's and culturally diverse people. Besides teaching clients new skills to overcome their feelings of depression, anxiety, trauma or low self-esteem, I am also trained as a master career coach and can help you with finding meaning in your career pursuits and in launching a successful job search. Foundational to my work is the belief in people's innate wisdom and in the use of mindfulness tools to help clients achieve more skillful communication and life choices.
