    My Approach to Helping

    I believe we all live in a world of stories: The meaning we attach to these stories, become the template of how we feel about ourselves. What is the meaning of these stories and how does this affect our mood and actions?

    Therapy is a creative and supportive process of getting to know your true self, of re-authoring the old story and writing a new one.

    We all have within us access to a greater wisdom, but we may not know this until we speak out loud. In a place that feels safe enough for us to talk about, what is really going on in our lives without fear of being judged, abandoned, or criticized.

    I bring to therapy a combination of insight, intuition, emotional support and guidance. I create a calm, creative and safe environment for personal solutions to life’s problems. All this can be done through visual storytelling (Art Therapy), writing and talking with a therapist.

    I am someone who attends to you with acceptance, support and genuine curiosity, exploring how you make sense of your world.

    If you don’t go in… You can’t find out.
