About my work: Collaboration is one of the main focuses in my work. Empathic listening, unconditional positive regard, congruence, and rapport building is key in developing a strong therapeutic alliance. I integrate various theoretical approaches in my work. Allowing oneself to truly engage provides a unique opportunity for self-examination. Creativity, spontaneity, and playfulness are paramount in work and life. They are a vehicle to find the life-work balance many of us seek, allowing us to experience the best version of ourselves.
