I bring four decades of experience in mental health, art, design. I work with individuals, couples, and family members who seek to change their relationships with themselves and others. I aim to open possibilities to people who have little hope for change, struggle with depression, anxiety, and trauma symptoms, feeling overwhelmed and lost. This is often accompanied by counterproductive soothing behaviours such as substance use, addiction to gambling, gaming, sex, or screen use. Further, some clients may stay in relationships that deepen their belief that they cannot become the agents of their own lives.

Although we may be trying our hardest, sometimes we can feel overwhelmed and unable to cope, or that our lives have taken a wrong turn. We can be plagued by depression, anxiety, grief or difficult life transitions. Or we may have mental illness or trauma that continues to get in our way and stops us flourishing. If these difficulties ring true, I believe I can help you get your life and your self back. Together, we will explore where you are now, the person you want to be and the way you want to live.

To most people you may look successful on the outside. However, internally you find you are coming across blocks in life. These might be being very hard on yourself, worrying about judgement from others, people pleasing and finding it hard to relax (unless you've been very productive and have ‘earned’ the rest). I understand what a daunting process it can be to decide to proceed with therapy. One of the things I admire most in my clients is the courage they display in taking control of their lives and being open to a more hopeful future.

In the aftermath of shattered hope and trust, it can be difficult to know what you think, what you want, or where you belong. I work with people recovering from abusive relationships or profound disappointment, including in the context of high-demand or high-control communities. You might also be making difficult choices in the context of faith or faith-community expectations, and I offer culturally respectful counselling for Jehovah's Witnesses, Catholics, and members or former members of Opus Dei.

Clients can present to therapy for a variety of reasons. On the other hand, clients can feel overwhelmed or unsure about where to begin with therapy. I provide a safe, non-judgemental space that meets where the client is at, and gently explores what's happening in their life. Where together we can work towards goals that are alligned with their hopes, aspirations, desires or needs; to improve connection with the self, interpersonal relationships and the interplay with their surrounding social world.

Each person's experience is unique. You might be struggling with past hurts, experiencing challenging thoughts, have feelings of self-sabotage or that no matter what you do, you end up in the same relationships and repeating the same patterns. The answers lie within you and I can help you uncover them. I bring non-judgemental acceptance, belief in your resilience, and compassion to the journey that we embark on together. I will support you to find the patterns and behaviours in your life that no longer serve you.

I work with individuals and couples who are trying to overcome psychological barriers or difficult emotions. These could be related to mental health, such as chronic anxiety, depression, conflict, intrusive thoughts or disturbing dreams. They could also be related to more general goals for personal growth and self-development. In the case of couples, reasons for starting therapy may include issues with communication or trust, or coping with significant life events.
