Biography

As a certified bioenergetic therapist and IMAGO relationship therapist, I believe strongly in the connection between our mind, body, and emotions and that all three need attending to in order to facilitate healing and create lasting change. I believe growth and change occur best within the safety of an authentic relationship where there is mutual trust and respect. I am committed to providing high quality professional care in a safe, confidential and respectful environment where new ways of relating and being in the world can be explored and experienced leading to a person living a more authentic life. My goal is to help people feel more alive and experience more pleasure, joy and love in their lives.
