About

I support couples to develop fulfilling relationships; where partners become each other's safe harbour in the stormy seas of life. I help partners fight better, repair quicker, heal relationship injuries- including infidelity, communicate more effectively, connect more deeply, navigate daily issues such as sex, mess, kids, money, time, so they can have the relationship they are meant to have. I also support individuals to address challenges such as self-criticism, parenting concerns, difficult childhood/teen experiences, low motivation, anxiety, relationship dissatisfaction, impact of oppression and and to move towards wholeness.
I offer compassion, presence and active engagement. I am a certified mindful self-compassion teacher, & use emotion-focused therapy, PACT (Psychobiological approach to couples therapy), & Gottman Method Couple Therapy (Level 3). I offer both practical skill development & experiential therapy. I'm a partner & parent of two kids & a ‘buff’ cat.
I create a compassionate, non-judgemental space to explore present difficulties & past painful experiences that areinfluencing the present. I help people recognize & change patterns of thinking & behaving that may have served a role, but are now holding them back. I support people to not only manage & regulate painful emotions, but ultimately transform them.
