About

While managing the competing expectations and responsibilities in the world today is demanding for everyone, I have found that teens and parents are facing some of the greatest challenges. Many are struggling with anxiety, depression, self-harm, bullying, and past trauma. If you are a parent desperate to help your child, please know that you are not alone. If you are looking for a therapist who understands and is able to connect with you or your teen, I may be the right fit for you. I have spent hundreds of hours working with pre-teens, teens, and adults helping them navigate their confusing and distressing thoughts and feelings.
I have also experienced the often hopeless and lonely world of infertility, which can have devastating mental health effects, in the absence of support. While we each carry the weight of trauma, shame, guilt, anxiety and depression differently, the need for judgement-free understanding and authentic connection is universal.
My approach to counselling is cooperative, compassion based, and person-centred, with a significant focus on self-discovery. I truly believe that people are experts in their own lives, but often experience barriers to achieving their goals. If I sound like the right fit for you, please reach out. Together we can begin your journey to healing.
