Registered Social Worker
I work with people who want to transition to a more rewarding, more deeply satisfying life than they live today. Anxiety, depression, illness or a sense of being stuck are an invitation to work on ourselves. I accompany people as they connect with themselves and grow into their own beautiful being.

Everyone, you too, has an inner compass that informs the course of therapy and is a bridge out of therapy to the future; my part is to help make it visible and to provide a supportive and safe atmosphere for your journey of personal exploration, change and healing.
If I start therapy, what can I expect?
People's unique circumstances hold the key to healing and positive change. Ideally, therapy is a forum where people learn to value themselves so they can live life in a more deliberate, understanding way. Small changes create bigger ones; as your self-perception grows and widens, a sense of well-being begins to develop, affecting every area of life.
I am a clinical social worker and psychotherapist, with a strong regard for mind-body communication. Psyche and nature complement each other; they are the inner and outer aspects of one's felt experience. Our sessions will usually consist of conversations, inflected with a mindful attitude. You may wish to bring a dream and, in addition, a range of expressive, creative activity is available to you; many people find a mixed approach like this helpful. Yet the most important element in therapy is the relationship that therapist and client develop together. For this reason it is important to make a commitment to your process and I commit to being present to you.
