IMG_2498I believe that safety, genuineness, care, and trust are at the core of an effective therapy.

My approach is first to sit with you and learn about what you are going through, as a whole. I’m interested in getting to know you as a person, where you are coming from in your life, and what you’d like to change and improve moving forward.

My foundation is in increasing depth and insight, understanding life patterns that are obstacles to progress, and facilitating a process of self-discovery from a relational and dynamic perspective. I also integrate various techniques along with psychotherapy. These include affect regulation, grounding, emotional focus, mindfulness, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), and others.

The approaches we will use in our work are based on what makes most sense for your situation and are always decided together.
