About My Clients

My clients range from 5 to 65 years old, and many of my clients come seeking support in managing depression, regulating emotions and managing anxiety, processing trauma, creating and maintaining healthy relationships and boundaries, increasing self care, adjusting to life transitions and new cultures, exploring and rediscovering purpose and meaning, and integrating difficult experiences. If you have experienced any of these and find it difficult to go solo, you may find my support helpful.

My Background and Approach

I use a variety of tools and modalities in an integrative approach, and work collaboratively with my clients, respecting and supporting their unique expression and values. Therapy is a unique journey, so the techniques, modalities and tools I use may look very different from one case to the other, from the spiritual to the practical, and from the here and now to past and childhood concerns. My main objective is to support clients achieving a state of wellbeing, so they can enhance their functioning and live more fulfilling lives. I use an embodied psychotherapy lens, combining Narrative Therapy, Expressive Arts Therapy, trauma-informed treatment, EMDR Therapy, Mindfulness, CBT, DBT and restorative practices; and work from an inclusive and cultural humility perspective.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

As a bicultural, bilingual person that lived around the world, my work is informed by integration of very seemingly disimilar experiences. My experiences helped me increase my genuine interest, respect and acceptance of diverse cultural worldviews, while maintaining my own identity. I work with humility, intentionality and presence. Through my work, training and personal experience, I developed a deep appreciation for the use of arts and embodied practices as healing modalities. I invite clients gently to explore this possibility, but never impose them. Yes, I am a therapist, but foremost, I am a human being, and as such, I aim to bring deep sense of connection within myself, with my clients, with nature and the larger world. I honor my strengths and limitations, as well as yours. My clients love my "realness", use of humor, and appropriate self disclosure. I hope we can be a good fit, but if not, I will happily refer you.
