About

My primary therapeutic goal is empowerment. I use evidence-based health care strategies that provide people with a set of skills they can take away with them.
I normally work with people who are dealing with anxiety, recovering from trauma, or managing OCD. Very often I work with people struggling to adapt to transitions in life, searching for meaning in what is happening around them, or trying to solve complex problems.
You will receive confidential, evidence-based mental health support to deal with whatever challenges you may be facing and realise your personal potential.
