In my practice, I work with adults struggling with various issues from anxiety, depression and eating issues, to trauma, grief and relationship difficulties. We all have our own history of experiences, and we tend to react in specific ways under stress. While our response may have been our best option in the past, it may not be adaptive now. I can help you resolve past traumas, learn to accept what is, and move forward from there - developing ways to a fuller and more satisfying life.

My background in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy provides me with excellent skills to alleviate symptoms of anxiety, depression and grief. I have extensive experience providing therapy for clients with Anorexia, Bulimia, Binge Eating and Obesity.

Working with Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and Ego-State Therapy to change deep seated beliefs of worthlessness or helplessness - sometimes in just a few sessions - leaves me feeling even more enthusiastic and very blessed to be working in the counselling profession.
