"All people are a universe of valid perspectives. Sometimes the way we look at the world needs support in order to organize our own perspectives.

It is in this space that I place myself as a therapist. In order to provide a safe, comfortable space where the spontaneity of each person I work with is respected in their time and capacity for transformation, in order to achieve the goals that are proposed."
