About

I help clients deal with anxiety, depression, anger, low confidence, stress, trauma and more. I am also passionate about bringing my 15+ years experience in career counselling to help clients navigate the emotional and practical aspects of work and career-related challenges. Whether it’s about overcoming conflict, gaining a new perspective, finding solutions to problems, needing a job change or career remake, or just having someone to talk to, my goal is to help you focus on what matters and take positive steps guided by your values. I am here to help you get unstuck so that you can live in your potential.
I use an eclectic/integrative approach to therapy, drawing on various disciplines and traditions and using the most applicable techniques from each in order to attune to your specific needs. Areas that we may work on include setting boundaries, communication, decision making, stress management, overcoming anxiety, and depression, and more.
I have experience counselling clients from diverse cultures, races, genders, faiths and sexual orientations. My ultimate goal is to fully hear what your challenges are and help you overcome them so that you can thrive.
