I am doctoral level psychologist, with 17 years of experience providing psychotherapy to individuals and couples. The world of relationships is my main specialty and development of deep therapeutic connection with each person is at the heart of my work. My main goal in each session is to help my clients untangle anything that might be standing in the way of their authentic relationship with others and themselves.
I believe in the power of spoken words. By creating a safe, compassion-filled therapeutic space I encourage a meaningful conversation where clients can experience strength in their vulnerability, develop insight and self-compassion. I seek to understand a person in their full complexity within their families, communities and a large context of their ancestral and cultural wisdom. I identify with three different cultures, and I am especially sensitive to a diverse range of experience of being a human.
My therapeutic toolbox includes traditional and modern psychoanalytic psychotherapy combined with a wide range of mindfulness and body-centered approaches to healing. I am currently studying the family constellations process which I am utilizing in my work with trauma.
Some of my specialties include treatment of anxiety, depression, relationship issues, perfectionism, low self-esteem, trans-generational trauma, PTSD, personal growth, postpartum and parenting issues, dynamics in relation to adult children of alcoholics and narcissistic abuse. I am also passionate about working with persons suffering from psychotic disorders, personality disorders and adults with high functioning autism.
