My Approach

I explore my client's experiences non judgmentally, their thoughts and behaviors, dreams or their innermost beliefs about self and others. Each of us has a unique story to tell and I aim to help clients understand how their anger, sadness or hurt are experienced and accommodated in our lives. I help my clients identify their needs more clearly and develop healthier habits of taking care of their needs themselves or building healthier relationships in their lives.

My Background

I hold a Masters Degree in Counseling Psychology and I have advanced training in Gestalt, Buddhist Psychology and Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy. I trained with Sue Johnson, and Rebecca Jorgensen as well as Dan Wile. I have worked with a wide range of individuals and with many distressed couples. Emotionally Focused Therapy is a research based approach to healing relationships that is shown to improve relationships in 90% of couples and has 70 efficacy in healing couples. I am LGBTQ friendly and informed therapist. I had good results when working with adults suffering from anxiety, depression, anger and aggression management as well as with clients who report existential void and despair. I am also a mother to two boys, 12 and 8 years old and I am keenly aware of the parenting adjustments and strategies. I truly enjoy this work and find my calling after spending 10 years in academia and research. My approach integrates approaches that are evidence based.
