Supporting you with Psychotherapy for individuals and groups.
I use gestalt therapy philosophy and methods. As a gestalt therapist, I focus on the therapeutic relationship, phenomenology and dialogue. Your therapy sessions are designed to be holistic, experiential and motivating. Each session is tailor-made to suit your needs in the here-and-now of the therapy session. Sessions may include psycho-education, especially for trauma survivors. As the therapeutic process unfolds, I may incorporate the use of creative media like art and music, dreams and body work to sharpen awareness. My approach centers around your therapy goals, and the search for answers to often very difficult questions.
Note: I’m currently fully booked, and will not be able to take on new clients for the moment.

What is Psychotherapy?
“Therapy” is from the Latin word therapīa, from Ancient Greek θεραπεία (therapeía, “service, medical treatment”), from θεραπεύω (therapeúō, “I serve, treat medically”). It is an attempted remediation of a health problem following a diagnosis, usually synonymous with treatment.
“Psychotherapy” is the treatment of the emotional, physical, relational aspects (i.e. the bio-psycho-social parts) of an individual through the treatment of the psyche.
There are many different psychotherapeutic methods. My method involves a dialogical approach to healing. This means that the therapeutic work involves a special kind of conversation between the client and the therapist. Through the therapeutic dialogue, the client gains insight into the self. Lasting change happen through this process.

My Areas of Interest as Psychotherapist
Areas of special interest & research:
Adult sufferers of childhood trauma. Complex Trauma. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
Why begin treatment early.
Here are some reasons that may interest you to begin treatment:
Difficulty with sleep. Certain addictive behaviors keeping you from living harmoniously. Obsessive behavior and/or thoughts. Difficulty in finding the right partner. Anxiety and panic feelings that occur with no known cause. You notice repeating patterns in your relationships that negatively affect your life. Feeling hopelessness. Crying without known cause. Having uncontrollable rage. Not being able to recover from a life crisis. Pain that medical doctors cannot diagnose. Unhealthy relationship with food / exercise.
Psychotherapy is most effective as a measure to prevent a psychological breakdown, and/or irreversible breakdown in relationships. These situations do not occur overnight, but develop over years. When symptoms are less severe, the client’s response to therapy is speedier. The sooner help is administered, the sooner one gets back to optimal living.
