I am a mature psychotherapist and I am committed to helping young adults and teenagers through “one on one” therapy sessions. Inside these frames, I stand with the belief that we are creative, content, and attained beings, and difficulties at an early age can affect the basics of our inner and outer interactions.
My experience and education are focused on healing through therapy and I strongly believe that social and family and community support is vital for our wellbeing and healing.
I use an eclectic approach integrating different therapeutic modalities: Psychodynamic therapy, Solutions Focussed Therapy, Compassion Focussed Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), Focussing, Tapping, and Gestalt.
"Human relationships are the best anti-depressants."
Dr. Jaak Panksepp
In an environment that is safe and confidential, I focus on working sensitively with young couples and young individuals, regardless of sex, gender orientation, religious or cultural heritage. Whatever therapist you choose, the most crucial determinant for the success of the therapy is the therapeutic relationship between you and the therapist.
We explore your values, identify your commitments and the aspects of your life that are important to you, and peel back the numerous life stressors that might keep you from not living the life you want.
Each relationship in our lives has the power to transform us, including the one with me.
My main aim is to help you feel understood in your relationships and within yourself.
"I offer a combined holistic approach, working with the emotional, the physical, the mental, and the existential/spiritual. I believe that a treatment plan should be individually tailored to each client or couple."
