About My Clients

Though my client base is diverse in needs, I often work with clients with difficulties with self-esteem, confidence, and interaction with others. My clients include but are not limited to those with depression, anxiety, bipolar and borderline personality disorders, obsessive compulsive disorder, health anxiety, ADHD, and existential and relationship concerns. I have particular expertise in social anxiety, and run workshops for people who struggle with it.

My Background and Approach

When in the midst of the challenges of life, it can seem the way forward is cloudy and uncertain. I collaborate with you to build a map of your own individual way of working and strengthen your ability to navigate it to find your way forward. Using a blend of directive & non-directive approaches, of deep emotional processing & practical skill-building, we will find out how you individually work and create the best-functioning and realized "You". I have 2 masters degrees (I call myself a MAMA), in creativity & talent development and in mental health counseling, & an iPEC Certified Life Coach. I am well-versed in CBT, mindfulness therapies, and have a warm spot for Jungian psychology. I have a holistic approach, addressing your needs from different angles: pragmatic, heart-based, and big-picture insight. I make therapy sessions experiential, with CBT done in an organic & humanistic way. I gave a TEDx Talk on how creative thinking is beneficial for personal growth.
