I am passionate about helping clients to create more vital and meaningful lives. My approach is holistic, meaning that I have a deep appreciation for how multiple dimensions of your life (physical, emotional, spiritual and social, to name a few) intersect to influence your overall well-being. In line with this, I often integrate mindfulness skills into the therapy process. I also take a strengths-based approach, which includes focusing not just on what you’re struggling with, but also on your infinite resilience.

I aim to provide a safe therapeutic space where we can clarify what’s truly important to you and understand how past experiences impact present behaviour. We develop tools to work with painful emotions, so that trauma and difficulty is transformed into unique strength and personal growth.

My areas of specialty include adjustment, life transitions, identity development, as well as support in managing stress, anxiety, depression, and interpersonal difficulties.  I draw from a range of therapeutic traditions, including:

  • Integrative Multitheoretical Psychotherapy
  • Client-centered Therapy
  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
  • Psychodynamic Psychotherapy
