Welcome

After more than 20 years as a psychotherapist I am still passionate about my work. I love working with people and am deeply moved by our ability to grow and change, throughout life. I feel privileged to be invited into your  world and to be able to offer assistance. I believe that working together we can find authentic and rewarding ways of resolving difficult issues, of living a good life and of being in relationships.
