OUR THERAPEUTIC STYLE AND COLLABORATION

In our work together, we will process your experiences with a lens of compassion, and start to identify patterns and thoughts that are no longer working for you. Our goals will be identified by you, and we will work in a structured way to create the changes you are seeking. 

I listen without judgment, and ask questions to illuminate your unconscious beliefs and desires. We may utilize somatic check-ins, meditative reflections, art therapy journaling, breathwork, cognitive behavioral questioning, intentional goal setting, and positive self-talk to help ground you in your worth, value and desirability.

I am grateful to have had the opportunity to work with my amazing clients online, and I have experienced how powerful this medium can be. After listening to my clients in Europe, North America, Africa, Asia and the Middle East, and learning what truly works for them, I have designed a comprehensive online support system to facilitate this connection.

I have worked in New York, Istanbul, and currently spend most of my time in Geneva, Switzerland. I strive to provide culturally competent care. I believe therapy and holistic support can evolve with the rest of our lives. Let's reconnect you to your body and your purpose.
