About

Sometimes we don't know exactly what we need help with, but we know something needs to change. You might feel anxious or sad without an obvious explanation, have experienced trauma, a desire to improve your self-esteem, or get over a painful break-up. Using a collaborative and empathic therapeutic approach grounded in evidence-based practice, I support you to make meaning of the feelings and thoughts that contribute to psychological and emotional distress. We work together to find new, more adaptive ways of being that improve your quality of life, create positive coping habits, and break unhelpful relationship patterns.
I draw from a variety of evidence-based therapies and have completed training in emotion-focussed therapy, schema therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), and trauma-informed therapies that have a neurobiological underpinning. I have completed extensive training in the treatment of trauma.
Therapy can feel daunting. You might not know where to start or what to say to your psychologist. Building a safe relationship is where we begin, taking sessions at your pace. I am available to talk with new clients for a free, 15-minute 'matching' session, where you can ask any questions you may have about the process of starting therapy.
