About Me

I believe that people have an innate capacity to heal and change. Access to this healing is sometimes blocked by negative and destructive patterns that are formed when there is a need to adapt and survive difficult, traumatic or overwhelming experiences. In a collaborative, empathic, and safe atmosphere, I facilitate people's connections to their own resources and foster the creation of a compassionate self that is free to make mindful choices and unhook old patterns. Through psychodynamic, humanistic and somatically oriented approaches, I help people find new insights and awareness, build resiliency and create pathways to greater fulfillment. I welcome new clients as well as those who are looking for new approaches to old problems. Currently, I am only offering remote sessions.
