Welcome to Counselling & Psychotherapy Services for Adults, Children & Families!

Create the new life that you envision! Check your experience, transform what is not working for you and keep what you need!

You may consider using the past as an opportunity to transform the future!

The stress never stays in your mind... it goes into your body ” - Gabor Maté

Remember, you are not alone in carrying your current situation that probably makes you feel stuck. Your emotions and feelings are psychological states that do not necessarily define you. Together, we could de-construct the past and re-construct the present installing hope, resilience and healing. I am confident you will gain a new perspective and a more balanced life.

I believe in your strengths and capacity to heal, and I base our work on mutual respect, trust and the belief that every person has worth, dignity, and impulse toward growth and is the expert in their own life. I will meet you where you are at with sensitivity, empathy and cultural humility, as my background and experience define me as a multicultural counsellor.

My work is based on therapeutical models like Relational, Gestalt, Humanistic, Client-Centered, Hypnosis, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Cybercounselling, Play Therapy, Art Therapy, Psychodynamic, Attachment, Positive Psychology. I look forward to working with you!

I want to express my admiration for the strength and creative potential you have in reaching out to get professional help. I know how hard it is for many people to ask for support; however, it could be vital in the change process. We are all serving and are inter-connected, and while I developed my personal growth and career, you focussed on distinctive skills in your journey.

It is equally essential to recognize your expertise and experience that are shaping you into a unique being. As part of our busy lives, I want to acknowledge the hard work and the complexity of the many roles you have, and dealing with an emotional problem could be overwhelming. I assume how stressful it may be for you to experience intense feelings.
