 Working with me...

The journey within therapy is all about you. I see you as the expert of your own life and my role is to listen, reflect, and give suggestions while you decide what works for you. I combine psychotherapy with mind body techniques such as guided visualizations and hypnotherapy. Also, I might use sand tray technique to deepen the results of the therapy.  My approach is tailored to your particular needs that is supportive, solution focused and insight-oriented. My work with you is to build on your strengths, meet the challenges you are facing and help you reaching the goals you set. I am honored to be a part of your journey towards a future that is hopeful and fulfilling.
