Life can be hard but you don't have to do it all alone.
My work is mainly body centered as our memory is for 95% in the body.
I am a Certified Somatic Practitioner (Peter Levine),a Bodynamic, EMDR and Sand Play therapist.
My expertise is working with trauma, PTSD, depression, grief, relational problems, attachment issues and cross cultural adjustment.
In my work with couples I use the emotional focused model/EFT from Sue Johnson and the collaborative model of Dan Wile.
I was born and raised in Belgium. I moved to the United States in 1985.
In Belgium I owned a degree as a pharmacist and a license to perform medical analyses. I deeply enjoyed my career in my lab, working with the referring doctors and helping them with the interpretation of our lab results.
My work with my referring doctors then and with my clients now is deeply grounded in my belief that a good and respectful relationship is the foundation for success then and change in my clients now.
I incorporate mindfulness, experiential, spiritual and dreams in my work.
I prefer to work with a non pathologizing approach and will - through my ongoing presence and support- help you find the unique resources you have in yourself in order to move forwards in life.
