About

I seek to create therapeutic spaces that are both supportive and exploratory. Drawing on my training as a therapist and literary scholar, I believe in the value of thinking carefully, deeply, and creatively about the stories we tell (and sometimes don’t tell) about ourselves. By learning to tell their stories, and perhaps learning to tell their stories differently, my clients are able to find balance, take risks, and centre healing in their lives.
What is psychoanalysis? We sometimes talk about becoming a more authentic self. But how can we ask ourselves to be more authentic than what we already are? Dispelling with authenticity, and turning instead to multiplicity and nuance, is one way of stepping into the realm of psychoanalysis.
