People come to see me when they notice they are "stuck" for various moments in life. often when transitioning into a new chapter; either transitioning from teenager to adulthood, change of relationships or employment, loss and grief, processing past traumas that resurface due to life's changes. Their commitment and readiness for tackling the challenges together with me, makes the best head start in recovery
As a Mental health Social Worker with over 15years of experience in mental health, I've adapted a personal approach of combination of CBT, DBT, ACT and Schema based therapy, with a big focus on the narrative and the story a person brings to therapy
Therapy can be daunting to start with, and finding the right match with your therapist is very important for the success in your recovery. We always welcome you to contact us for a brief phone conversation to help you manage the right pathways to therapy

As I believe there is no "one size fits all" nor one therapy approach that can cover the full goals of your therapy. Therefore I will adjust and choose my evidence based informed therapy approaches per session, going by what you present with as goals and needs.
