She sees her role as a facilitator, offering her clients a safe and open space where their difficulties can be explored without judgment. She accompanies her clients on their journey towards self-discovery, shedding light on things that were once hidden and finding meaning in their experiences. With self-knowledge her clients feel they are better able to navigate through their world and cope with life’s challenges.

She works efficiently to help her clients resolve difficulties and encourages her clients to identify strengths and possibilities to expand their comfort zone and create sustainable change.
