" I believe that therapy in its purest form is a collaborative process that aims to increase psychological well-being and reduce distress. At the heart of this process, is the positive healing relationship that develops between an individual, a couple or a family, and the therapist.


My approach is based on attachment / trauma, self-compassion, emotionally focused and developmental. I believe that my clients are resilient individuals. With my training in verbal therapy and arts therapy, I have several tools at my disposal to help you solve your problems verbally and non-verbally."
