My practice is based on a holistic, mindful, integral & contemplative approach informed by Transpersonal, Humanistic, Existential-Contemplative, Somatic and Buddhist Psychologies.
With a compassionate, non-judgmental and non-pathological approach I meet clients where they and develop a supportive ground of exploration for the resolution of their challenges.
In my holistic approach I integrate the necessary and appropriate modalities drawing from modern psychotherapy and the wisdom of contemplative Eastern traditions.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
I particularly like to assist clients who are interested in exploring and resolving their life circumstances, whether personal or relational, from a psycho-spiritual perspective, with deep self-exploration and integration of contemplative support and experience (meditation, self inquiry, mindfulness, nondual inquiry).
How Psychotherapy Can Help
Psychotherapy, when approached with self-honesty, courage and compassion, is the most ideal space for inner exploration, transformation, healing and resolution of our life challenges. This journey can move us toward the rediscovery of our nature and the embracing of life, self and other with much more acceptance, clarity, understanding and openness.
My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy
I see psychotherapy as psycho-spiritual journey toward wholeness, healing and transformation, full integration of our conditions and inner potentials, and a movement toward openness to life.
What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist
The appreciation for how a compassionate and mindful connection with client/s can truly heal and transform our lives.
My Role as a Therapist
To assist, guide, support client/s in their journey toward wholeness and healing, and provide a respectful, mindful and compassionate connection in a space where transformation can occur.
My Therapy Focus
The focus of my work is to first welcome a client/s as they are, without judgment or pathological interest, and fully connect with them. Second, to create with them the most conducive and supportive environment for an open, compassionate and honest exploration of their life circumstance.
On the Fence About Going to Therapy?
There is really nothing to lose and actually much to gain by giving yourself the opportunity to see what may arise by being in a supportive space with a therapist who sees you as you are, without judgments or interpretations, who's only interest is to see you resolve your challenges and opening yourself to life. Besides, free consultations are always an option, at least with me!
Had a Negative Therapy Experience?
Therapists are human and at times unpleasant experiences can arise. However, this should not discourage one from trying again with someone new, who can see and welcome them as they are and with whom a completely different and more supportive connection can be created. Consulting first with the therapist is essential and recommended - that's why I always offer a FREE consultation, as it is important also to me that a good connection and a fit is present from the start.
Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist
The connection is always the most important aspect, very closely followed by their approach and orientation.
