About me and my therapy practice

As a clinically trained psychotherapist, I have extensive experience in assisting individuals with a wide range of psychological challenges, including anxiety, trauma, depression, addiction, and various other issues. My approach is centered on acknowledging and harnessing the strengths and struggles within your psyche, ultimately empowering you to heal and cultivate trust, compassion, and profound self-understanding.

Through our therapeutic journey together, my primary goal is to guide you towards finding inner agreement, clarity, and self-trust. By fostering these essential aspects, you can navigate the healing process with greater confidence and congruence. I firmly believe that gaining a deeper understanding of oneself and the underlying traumas is a transformative key to attaining greater control and sustainable healing.

The work I engage in with my clients is not only deeply rewarding but also deeply compassionate. I am genuinely committed to your well-being and personal growth. My heartfelt dedication to helping you navigate life's challenges and fostering positive change is at the core of my practice.

Together, we will embark on a path of self-discovery, healing, and growth. It is my sincere belief that with the right support and guidance, you can unlock your true potential and lead a more fulfilling life. I am here to provide a safe and nurturing space where you can explore and address your concerns with trust and confidence. Let us take this journey together towards a brighter, more balanced, and empowered future.

Practice description

I am privileged to have undergone training at Naropa University, a prestigious institution renowned for its global reputation. Graduating in 2017, I embarked on my career as a psychologist in 2015. My areas of expertise lie in CBT, Gestalt, and Family Systems, incorporating scientifically-supported methods into my practice.

At the core of my approach is a profound belief in the inherent goodness and purity of every human being. I recognize that our actions are driven by the universal pursuit of fulfilling our fundamental needs. However, it is not uncommon for these attempts to become misguided, confused, or thwarted along the way. In order to resolve the internal and external conflicts that entangle us, it is crucial to understand the nature and roots of these needs, and to discover how to fulfill them with honesty, efficacy, and compassion. Through this lens, I strive to see the purest essence within my clients and reflect that image back to them, enabling them to gain an honest perception of their best selves. Grounded in this perspective, I integrate scientifically-supported techniques from CBT, Gestalt, Family Systems
