People come to see me for a lot of different reasons. For instance, you might be experiencing depression or anxiety, having relationship difficulties (whether you're single or partnered), going through a major life transition or loss, or wondering about the overall direction of your life. You may have a sense that there's something more to life -- that you could be living a richer life, and thriving more than you are right now. I'm here to support you and examine what's working and not, whether you're seeking a major transformation, or simply a deeper understanding of your life patterns.
My aim is to establish a warm and trusting relationship where you can feel supported, gain new insight, solve problems, alleviate symptoms, and develop your self confidence and sense of purpose. I take an integrative approach tailored to your needs; effective therapeutic interventions are identified collaboratively, and may include talking therapy, experiential approaches, art therapy, walk & talk therapy, etc. I believe real therapeutic change takes time and can offer longer term psychotherapy options to suit your needs and budget.
With a Master of Professional Psychology Practice, I confidently support clients in navigating a wide spectrum of mental health issues ranging from anxiety and mood disorders to complex trauma, relationship and attachment concerns. My interest in psychology was born out of a natural curiosity of human behaviour and has evolved into a deep passion for helping people cultivate a sense of aliveness & vitality. I am voraciously curious about the human condition, and this translates to the therapy room where I am always eager to seek understanding of the human being sitting across from me: their stories, their urges, and their "why?".
I work with people who have diverse life circumstances. My psychoanalytic understanding enables me to work with people who present with a range of difficulties and diverse clinical issues. I consult individually with adults and children as well as with families who want to understand and work on particular issues, such as parenting children who need support within a family. I work with people wanting to understand and resolve a range of social and psychological difficulties such as loss, separation, childhood concerns, obsessions, sexual problems, intimacy and relationship issues. I also provide consultation to services.
