About

Do you sometimes feel overwhelmed, stressed, or depressed. Are you unhappy in your relationship. Are you or a family member abusing alcohol or mood-altering drugs. I offer a safe, relaxed and confidential environment to talk through your challenges and learn new coping strategies to build resilience in your life.
I work with individuals who are experiencing, depression, anxiety, grief and loss, relationship difficulties and substance misuse. I work with couples and families who have relationship issues. I am a Sports Psychology consultant and work with athletes who are experiencing mental health and sport performance issues.
My integrative approach to therapy is based on twenty-five years of professional experience working in mental health and addictions. I use a variety of approaches to suit the unique needs of each individual client. I spend time getting to know my clients and work in a collaborative manner to facilitate their unique journey for a better quality of life.
