About My Clients

Life can get difficult sometimes as we try to juggle the demands of the external world while finding internal balance and harmony. We can carry the pain inflicted on us due to circumstances or by others. And sometimes it is just a feeling of wanting something more from life than what seems feasible. These experiences can leave us feeling isolated and disconnected from our sense of aliveness, joy and creativity. I like to support my clients on their journey towards creating a more satisfying life

My Background and Approach

My therapy approach is client centered. I draw from different modalities based on the client's needs and where they are in their process. I simultaneously hold process and goal as important facets of the healing journey. I take the time to establish a strong therapeutic alliance, so the client's most tender and repressed parts feel safe to express themselves. Along with being trained in the integral counseling method, I have also trained in the somatic approach. I invite the soma in the healing process so the physical, mental, emotional aspects can all be integrated.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I view most mental and emotional distress as a symptom of deeper disconnection from who we truly are. I trust the drive towards wholeness is innate in all of us. Therefore, my work as a therapist is not about adding on or fixing the client, but rather examining and gently removing what might be in the way of the client’s own organic process of healing.
