Using warmth and empathy, I provide a safe environment for you to explore how to strengthen your sense of self and your intimate relationships, enabling you to heal and grow authentically. I offer compassionate support to individuals and couples facing relationship difficulties, adjusting to challenging life transitions, and/or hoping to improve mental well-being.
I specialize in couples and can help you improve communication, reconnect with your partner, and deepen intimacy. My goal is to help you gain personal insight, improve relationships, and explore life’s concerns, conflicts, and contradictions. I use Attachment Theory, existential humanism (the search for meaning and self-realization) and an emotion-focused approach to help identify feelings and behaviors. I believe you are the expert on you and your experience.
I have experience with LGBTQ+ and speak German, French, Swedish and English.

My style is compassionate and straight forward. I draw from psychodynamic, somatic, DBT, and person centered therapy styles to create an integrated experience that is tailored to each individual or couple. I have experience working with individuals diagnosed with serious mental illnesses such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder in residential settings and I have worked at a co-occurring substance use and mental health treatment center for individuals recovering from addiction. I have provided group and long term individual therapy to adults, teens, and children.
I specialize in interpersonal communication skills, setting boundaries, and addressing unresolved grief and trauma. I believe that every human is their own best healer. Through our work together, I can assist in bringing clarity to your unique human experience through a holistic lens and providing useful tools that integrate one’s mind and body. I am a certified RYT200 yoga teacher and have completed Level 1 of the Gottman Method for couples therapy.
