Healing Trauma through Ritual Practice

For 20 years, alongside my work as a psychotherapist, I accompanied clients in ritualmaking, presided their tailor-made ceremonies and trained professional celebrants through the Ashoka Association.

Since 2020, I work as a freelancer*. I adapt my consultations in psychtherapy and in ritual accompaniment, as well as the trainings and workshops to almost any context. The goal remains the same: offer participants the means to make ordinary moments extraordinary through creative ritual practice that feels right and meaningful to them

My interventions are based on the latest research and feature practical tools such as the Inventory for Ritual Profile and Checklists. These tools are designed for use by mental health professionals, paraprofessionals, and educators as well as others interested in creating bespoke rituals.

* I no longer preside rituals, except in exceptional cases.


Ritual is work, endless work. But it is one of the most important things we humans do.

~ Seligman, Weller, Puett et al. (2008)
