My Approach to Helping
If you are browsing these pages, it is likely you are facing some questions that you would like answered. You can find relief and answers by seeking the support that is right for you.
I take a positive, non-judgmental, person-centered approach to healing, and I work with adults who are asking questions about sexuality, life or career.
Through my work I discovered how fulfilling and satisfying life can be, when one is connected with and aligned to his or her own Essence. I define Essence as the unique combination of all the life forces that keep us alive. I focus primarily on rediscovering and reconnecting you with your inner life forces, and I have learned that when this happens, change happens.
To achieve this I use the past to teach us lessons, the future to guide decisions and the present to take action; mindfulness is key to my work.

Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist
It is important that you choose someone that is right for you.
Your circumstances are unique and so is the concept of right therapist. In general, these are a few of the things I would recommend to clients who are looking for support:
- be clear with the reasons why you are looking for help
- establish a few important criteria by which you would consider a professional to be suitable
- do some preliminary online research
- ask people you trust for recommendations
- shortlist 2 or 3 professionals
- call them and directly ask questions to satisfy your chosen criteria
This should increase the chances to find the professional that is "right" for you. And remember, if after your first meeting you feel this was the wrong decision, look for someone else.
