About

Perhaps you are experiencing a significant transition in your life, wanting to explore your identity, are feeling the influence of anxiety or depression, or are wanting to heal from traumatic experiences you have had. Whatever the life challenge that you are experiencing, I am committed to working collaboratively with you to access your strengths, uncover your preferred vision for living, and create the change that you are seeking.
I honour the uniqueness of your personal ways of meaning-making; I view counselling as an opportunity to discover and re-discover aspects of yourself. I primarily draw from Internal Family Systems, Somatic Experiencing and Polyvagal-Informed Therapy, but I am also eclectic, ensuring my approach makes sense to you and is useful for your process.
Discovering a space where you feel safe enough to explore the parts of you which hold your suffering can be empowering and transformative. If you are feeling stuck, overwhelmed, or alone, I invite you to reach out. I would be honoured to join you on your unique journey towards increased wellness.
