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, and intentional goal setting to help ground you.
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 most recently in New York, Istanbul, and Geneva, Switzerland. After moving regularly as a result of my husband’s work in the humanitarian sector, I personally understand the importance of accessible support and treatment, no matter where we may be. Currently spending most of my time in the midwest, USA, I am licensed in my home base of NYC and currently work with clients in New York and worldwide.
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.
