For individuals, couples, and families

Therapeutic, gentle, sensitive, and non-judgmental healing

I believe that individuals are shaped by external socio-cultural influences, but they also have a considerable amount of human agency to make choices and create their own reality. In order to assist clients in their individual healing and empowerment process, I utilize an integral approach, which involves the fusion of different schools of psychotherapy.  The word ‘integrative’ in integrative psychotherapy also refers to integrating the personality and making it cohesive by addressing the affective (heart), cognitive (mind), physiological (body), and spiritual dimensions (soul) of the person.
