I utilize interventions that are engaging, and increase my clients' sense of self-awareness, inner-wisdom and well-being.
With full faith in the power of the therapeutic process, I collaborate with you in navigating and conquering challenging situations. It is my belief that all human beings deserve tools, support and understanding in times of need. In forming a therapeutic alliance I will encourage you, and offer unconditional support until your goals have been met.

the ship: as therapist and human being I draw from various life experiences both constructive and challenging, that inform my practice:
the sail: vital energy, knowledge/ studies, travel, navigation between cultures,intention, professionalism, passion. like the life changing wonder of being a mom.
the rudder: deep understanding, stemming from life challenges that
breed compassion, empathy and purpose. like the soul shattering effects of grief and loss.
