I use holistic approaches ranging from mindfulness, personal and transpersonal psychosynthesis methods, psychoanalysis, visualization, reflective self-awareness techniques, and meditation. I also use a modified variation of EMDR for release, integration and closure of trauma-based issues. It is my genuine belief that each client can with conscious effort instill inner and outer changes with positive results and consequences. I value the collaborative effort between client and therapist because I have found that such mutual cooperation guarantees the most effective and lasting results. I also value solution-focused therapy with focus on solutions rather than problems. In this way, the client gains the understanding that every small change leads to a bigger change, and that every limitation can be dealt with by keeping the wholeness of the person in view and by honoring each sign of progress as a stepping stone in the right direction one step at the time.

I have served as Psychosynthesis Psychotherapist, Career Counselor, Life Coach and Meditation Practitioner in the United States and Canada for over 30 years. I use holistic approaches combining psychosynthesis, cognitive and mindfulness approaches for personal and spiritual growth. In collaboration with my clients, I work with individuals, couples and families with emphasis on personal development, psychological and spiritual growth. My goal is to help clients achieve a sense of wholeness that produces a sense of genuine authenticity and success in all areas of their lives.

Techniques I Use


  • Integral Therapy External link

    Integral therapy focuses on exploring causes and conditions of past experiences for understanding and integrating what needs to be changed in one's personality in terms of work life, relationships and self-care.

  • Experiential External link

    I have learned from working with my clients that those who are willing to invest in themselves are more likely to consistently address and balance their emotional-mental life one step at the time. I work with clients who understand why exploring causes of past conditioning both positive and negative are essential for their growth, who feel excited about renewing their own core identity.

Issues I Treat


  • Personal Growth External link

    Nothing is more rewarding than seeing yourself grow and transform into a person you care for, cherish and be proud of no matter what your experience may be at any moment of your life.

  • Self-Esteem External link

    When you transform your limiting beliefs, negative emotions and mental states that form your ego patterns, you become a positive, life enhancing, creatively active and consciously aware personality ready to show up with a sense of genuine self-confidence, self-trust and self-worth.
