Welcome!

Psychotherapy is an extraordinary journey of discovery and healing towards more wholeness. It is a process that allows gradual integration of mind, body, heart, and spirit, of past and present, of inner self-states and outside influences. In psychotherapy we grow through our wounds and our strengths, with our flaws and our beauties; we slowly unwrap layers of hurt and grief to reclaim our aliveness in the context of a contained and deep relationship with another human being. 

I mostly work with individuals who come from all walks of life, and often stand at the intersection of disenfranchised and stigmatized identities (e.g., LGBT/queer individuals, foreigners, immigrants, women). 

I see my role as accompanying you into reclaiming your power and sense of self in the wake of cultural, intergenerational, and personal history (e.g., descendants of Holocaust survivors, oppression, trauma). Many of those I have worked with explored existential thresholds (e.g., birth, death, midlife, grief and loss).

 

I integrate Jungian, Queer, and Feminist relational in-depth approaches, which involves working in a non-judgmental and empowering manner, and combining empirically supported therapy with explorations of dreams, of the personal and collective unconscious. I offer affirmative, compassionate, and sometimes challenging support on the path to healing.

     

I work in English and in French.
