I am devoted to helping individuals to explore issues around finding a sense of purpose in their own lives, particularly after a significant life change, or even if you are having difficulty making a decision around a significant life change. Often, depression and anxiety manifests as a symptom in our lives when it is unclear what meaning we attach to the things we are doing on a daily basis. I look forward to helping you explore these factors through active exploration of the things that are priority and important in your life.

As an Emotion-focused Therapy trained therapist, I work with individuals collaboratively to get to the root cause of the daily difficulties you experience. We need to arrive at a place before we can leave it. We have to feel a feeling in order to change it.

I believe finding a personal sense of mental health attainment is pivotal to our well-being. Change first comes from the individual readiness, to become aware of the chaos or rigidity we have built into our lives, then to explore what past experiences led us to where we are now.
