I offer psychotherapy in English, French and Dutch.

I mainly use Body Oriented psychotherapies such as Somatic Experienced Therapy , Hakomi, Bodynamics, EMDR, and Emotional Focused Couples therapies, interwoven with Hypnosis, Mindfulness, Jungian Therapy, CBT, Family Systems, Expressive Arts and Sandplay in my work with children, teens, adults, and couples.

I lived for 35 years in the Bay Area in California and feel more than fortunate to have worked in the Child Therapy Institute of Marin, where we used Sandtray, Expressive Arts, and Depth Therapy in our work with traumatized children. This non-verbal way of working with trauma lead me to the world of Somatic and Body Centered therapies like Hakomi, Somatic Experiencing Therapy, DARe, NARM, and Bodynamics.

I completed many fascinating trainings given by Peter Levine, Bessel Vanderkolk, Steven Porges, Diane Poole Heller, Steven Hoskinson, Anne and Joel Isaacs, Janina Fisher, Raja Selvam and Sue Johnson among other wonderful and inspiring trainers.

Being whole, healed, and fulfilled is a matter of integrating the Body, Mind, Soul and Spirit; a possibility that is open to all of us. Enabling your inner resources through the different techniques I practice, I will help you enter a state of "mindfulness" whereby you can explore what is going on inside your own self, gaining fast and direct contact with the profound levels of unconscious material stored there.

Results are very deep and powerful since they are generated from your own experiences and not from mine.

With patience and empathy I will encourage you to integrate these results and to use them to move you through your challenges while making permanent positive changes in your life.
