My conviction that every life experience brings about opportunities for self-development and growth makes me see clients from a place of potentiality rather than pathology and deficiencies.
My studies, over twenty years of clinical experience, broad knowledge of therapeutic processes and solution-focused techniques serve as a catalyst in creating rapid change enabling me to better serve my clients.
I consider myself an eclectic therapist constantly seeking innovative methods to facilitate the integration process of body, mind and spirit. I deeply honor and respect the individuality of the person and offer a confidential, safe, comfortable, and inviting atmosphere for clients to awaken their highest potential.
My approach to therapy emphasizes self-awareness, insight, and empowerment. A deep understanding of the unconscious mind helps me guide my clients to access the origin of limiting beliefs and repressed emotions that lead to unhealthy and unproductive reactions, behaviors and attitudes. Since perception is reality, (your) present reality changes through the process of self-discovery.
Even though my style is to go deep when the situation calls for, I often find myself simply holding the space for clients to experience a transforming connection and inner awakening.
My calling, passion and commitment are to accompany every client as far,
and as deep, as they are willing and able to go.
I am deeply moved by people’s courage,
determination and commitment in finding their inner truth.
