With her warm personality she creates a safe environment in which people are able to grow. Her approach is with Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Emotional Focused Therapy, and Solution Focused Therapy. She was also trained in play therapy and use toys—children’s language (age 4 to10)—to connect with them and get access to their inner world. She works with individual, couples and families.
