About My Clients

With a prior focus on trauma-related support, my clinical experience includes being of support for a large array of client populations with major life transitions, feelings of being lost, adaptation, emotional expression and dependency, relationship issues as well as anxiety and depression.

My Background and Approach

The basis of my practice lies heavily on psychoanalytic theories with an integrative approach to best fit the individual needs of each one of my clients. Our emotions and behaviors are often deeply rooted in our childhood experiences. Our past has a great impact on the development of our personality and in shaping our relationships in our adult lives. It is not the most difficult experiences that bring psychological suffering but our tendency to disregard our emotions that arise from such experiences. I strongly believe that if we learn to listen to our inner voice and explore the core dynamics behind our emotions, only then we can create sustainable acceptance and compassion for all sides of ourselves. My role as a therapist is to be a non-judgmental guide to my clients through the therapy journey as we collaboratively untangle the knots and rediscover our true selves.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Our emotions are often deeply rooted in our childhood. Our past has an impact on the development of our personality and in shaping our relationships. It is not the most difficult experiences that bring suffering but our tendency to disregard our feelings that arise from such experiences. Therapy is supportive journey where we work together to better understand ourselves, our experiences, and repeating patterns. At the very heart of our work, we explore the experiences that have brought us to where we are while building bridges between our past and present to break cycles that are often painful to us. In this journey, we often talk about our experiences and explore unconscious motivations behind our reactions. By exploring, we allow ourselves the space for developing insight from within and expand the range of our understanding of our very beings. Making new meanings and narratives about who we are and who we have been helps us feel heard and felt for, and makes us free.
