My passion is helping people to bring a new light into their lives; to view their life and relationships with curiosity and compassion. In the sessions, you will explore new pathways toward living a life with more freedom, enthusiasm, wisdom and joy.

I offer a safe, confidential and nurturing environment which enables us to work together to develop new understandings and tools that will help you achieve a greater sense of fulfillment in your life and relationships. I work compassionately in a non-judgemental space to help you reach your personal goals.
