Life can feel overwhelming at times. Uncertainty, unexpected challenges and self-doubt can weigh us down. Carrying such weight can cause us to experience fatigue, worry, sleepless nights, and unwanted behaviours, thoughts and emotions. What if some of that weight could be lifted. I offer compassionate care for people with anxiety, depression, self-esteem issues, grief and trauma. Based on an integrative mix of both person-centred and psychodynamic approaches, I endeavour to inspire compassionate self-understanding with an aim towards inner healing.

My orientation is trauma-informed and psychodynamic , as I seek to provide you with the room you need to explore how your past may be impacting, or even overwhelming your present.
Whether you’re experiencing depressed or anxious thoughts or feelings, difficulties in relationships, the impact of past trauma, feel trapped in addictive living, or looking for help navigating school or work-related stress, I would be honoured to help you on your journey. I will help you encounter the sensations, emotions, thoughts, and long-standing narratives keeping you stuck in repetitive disempowering cycles of behaviour and thought. I can help you cultivate a deeper awareness of your mind-body connection. Tuning inward opens up possibilities for building a healthier sense of self and more meaningful relationships.

It is a natural part of life that we question our careers and ask ourselves why we do what we do.

As a career counsellor and Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying), I'm here to help you manage these emotions and make a strategic, informed decision on what career to pursue next. My approach combines psychotherapy with practical decision-making and action-planning.

Everybody from an early age develops a 'story'. The story becomes an accumulation of everything that we experience. Made up of thoughts, emotions and feelings. All stories are similar, how we learn to live with our experiences makes our story unique. We learn to identify, believing that we are our story, creating situations and patterns in our lives that often become problematic. Psychotherapy is extremely beneficial if you are experiencing low self esteem, depression, anxiety, trauma, loss, loneliness, anger, forgiveness, relationship difficulties, parenting challenges and family struggles.
