Life’s challenges can often be overwhelming, causing us anxiety, sadness, or anger. If this sounds familiar, I would like to help. I offer support in a safe, nonjudgmental space to explore, understand and find solutions to the things that hold you back. Through therapy we can find a way forward.

My Approach

Part of my approach to therapy centres on the following idea. I may have professional expertise as the therapist; however, you are the expert in your life. You have lived and experienced every bit of it. My primary role is as a facilitator, I offer my experience, training and a safe nonjudgemental space so we can collaborate on how to best approach your challenges. Each individual intrinsically knows what they need in order to overcome their obstacles, sometimes it just takes some help and support to find it.

No two people’s difficulties are ever exactly the same, hence assessing and understanding difficulties the way you as an individual are experiencing them is vital in the process. As a qualified clinical psychologist and clinical social worker, I have been trained in a wide variety of interventions which allows me to adjust our sessions to fit your particular need.

I am guided by a psychodynamic framework; however, I extensively utilize approaches from cognitive psychology such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) as well as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).
