Description

At times psychotherapy can be the most helpful and practical way to achieve relief from feelings of hopelessness, doubt or adjust to change. For me psychotherapy is a deeply engaged and collaborative conversation. I strive to offer my clients a warm and collaborative atmosphere, which can help them gain a deeper self-understanding, free themselves from hurtful or damaging relational patterns, and develop new ways of thinking, feeling and relating to others and to themselves.
Questions that emerge in the course of therapy are as meaningful as the answers.Therapy can be a safe space to practice
