Therapy is a very personal experience so it’s important that you feel comfortable with your therapist and believe they’re a good fit for you. People will decide to see a psychologist for a range of different reasons... Often they’re experiencing some kind of stress, relationship difficulties, trauma or addiction … or sometimes they feel they just need someone to talk to. We start by talking about what brings you to the session. You may have clearly defined goals of what you’d like to achieve or, perhaps you’re not sure and you’re just trying to get a better understanding of yourself and your life experiences. Therapy is also about encouraging you to consider different ways of thinking, trying new strategies and learning new skills. It's ok if you feel that you’re stepping outside of your comfort zone. It’s not always easy to be in therapy, it takes a lot of courage to start, and to continue the process.

I specialise in helping clients manage substance use issues, such as drugs, alcohol and tobacco, as well as potentially addictive behaviours such as gambling.
Do you struggle with drugs, alcohol, gambling or another addictive behaviour that is difficult to shake? Or are you a family member who is impacted by someone else's addictive behaviours? I can help you understand addiction and make sense of the chaos it causes in your life. Together, we'll use a combination of education, information and counselling support to ensure you can make choices that you're happy with, and live a life you're proud of. I also work with people experiencing complex mental and physical health issues that can accompany addiction , such as ADHD/ADD, chronic pain, relational difficulties, and psychiatric diagnoses.

The TARA Clinic, where TARA is an acronym for Therapeutic Addiction Recovery Assistance, is the modern solution to addiction treatment.
Society has viewed addiction as a weakness that you are powerless over or a defect of character only impacting those from lower socioeconomic status. The reality is that addiction doesn't discriminate! The TARA Clinic helps busy and successful people to regain control over substance use and addiction while leaving the guilt and shame behind, because we believe that everyone deserves to find the freedom they truly crave.

Life offers us all challenges, sometimes huge, sometimes small, these challenges present themselves so that we may grow and in the process become wiser. I will support you to lean into your experiences rather than moving away from feelings, learning to befriend them and in the process develop a closer relationship with yourself and others. Developing emotional agility is a natural outcome of therapy that provides agency for change. Issues include parenting, relationships, depression, anxiety, life direction, addiction and trauma.

I have worked both in inpatient facilities and in private practice with clients experiencing issues such as addiction , depression, anxiety, developmental and complex trauma, PTSD, grief, relationship problems and identity confusion.
My greatest satisfaction is working with clients to help them transcend the issues and experiences that hold them back from having the lives they want. Embarking on psychotherapy should be one of the most meaningful experiences a person can have. Accompanying another human being on that path is the most deeply rewarding aspect of my work.

Addiction Counsellors
A person with an addiction uses a substance, or engages in a behavior, for which the rewarding effects provide a compelling incentive to repeat the activity, despite detrimental consequences. Addiction may involve the use of substances such as alcohol, inhalants, opioids, cocaine, and nicotine, or behaviors such as gambling.
