A life truly lived constantly burns away veils of illusion, burns away what is no longer relevant, gradually reveals our essence, until at last, we are strong enough to stand in our naked truth.
My style is warm, genuine and I have a good sense of humor. I help my clients make contact with the wisdom in their body's felt sense and life forward movement through present moment somatic focusing. I am a certified Focusing-Oriented therapist.
My approach to psychotherapy is rooted in psychoanalytic and Jungian psychology. I help my clients get in touch with lost or unconscious aspects through talk, sand play, creativity, dream work. This process helps you to come into alignment with your highest self, holding space for your unfolding and flourishing.
