Psychotherapy for children, adults, and couples

Our aspiration for a wholesome and fulfilling life often leads us towards the path of healing and growth. I believe that psychotherapy is a powerful tool that aids in this transformation. In my practice, I aim to create a safe, caring and confidential environment. Such an environment allows for deep reflection on the self and on relationships, which can serve as a catalyst for change and healing. 


My work is guided by the principle that we experience the world through various parts of ourselves including the mind, emotions, body, and spirit. Therefore, the integrative approach I use combines depth-oriented psychotherapy, cognitive-behavioral  approaches, somatic experiencing, and mindfulness practices.


In addition to talk therapy, I offer the opportunity to use other modalities such as visual arts, music, movement, drama, poetry, play and sandtray therapies, when suitable to the client. Expressive arts enrich the therapeutic process by enabling us to access deep and profound material that promotes greater self-awareness and development of inner strengths.   Stimulating the creative aspects of oneself also helps overcome blocks to living to our full potential and supports making meaningful connections with others.


In collaboration with clients, I address issues of depression, anxiety, stress, self-esteem, trauma, relationship challenges, identity (racial, gender and sexual, amongst others), cultural and generational matters, life transitions, grief and loss.

I provide therapy to individuals of all ages, couples and groups.
