PSYCHOTHERAPY


Therapy is both an inner and an interactive journey:


  • To learn new coping strategies that strengthen resilience to deal with the challenges and crises in life
  • To develop the skills necessary to relate to others resonantly, passionately and compassionately
  • To foster a vital authentic sense of self and promote genuine well-being.
