My approach is about self-discovery. With curiosity and compassion, I am to help clients explore, move through, and integrate challenging experiences, to ultimately discover what they truly value and what is vital for attaining and maintaining psychological well-being.
As someone who has dedicated over a decade to helping others heal from trauma, I have learnt that the integration of our mind-brain-body system is core to cultivating well-being. Finding integration means tuning into the wisdom of our body and allowing the full depth of emotional experience. It takes practice to feel safe enough to do this.
I am a therapist who works to help you feel welcome, understood, accepted, and empowered on your path to finding emotional integration and a life well-lived. When we make space for our feelings, we can know them, learn from them and carry them with us. I'm here to help you learn how.

My approach in psychotherapy is interpersonal and relational: to journey alongside others, with curiosity and compassion, with the goal of creating a 'safe enough' space for self-exploration and reflection. I work in a way that attempts to integrate all aspects of emotional and psychological experience, with an understanding that the body remembers and thus needs to be integrated into therapy.
