I have a strong belief in the healing process of therapy and have worked for over 20 years supporting people who are in psychological and emotional pain. I help people find stability and reconnect with themselves, as they do the important work of reclaiming and changing their life for the better. Whether you have thought about trying therapy for a long time, perhaps it's a brand new idea, or even if you have done some "healing" work in the past and feel like it is time to tackle new challenges - I am here to help.

Suffering is a part of life. It is something we all have in common, yet can feel so alone and isolated in. It can present in many ways, whether it been through depression, anxiety, anger, and it can impact many areas of our lives such as activities of daily living, our ability to function socially and cognitively, and our adaptability to stress. For some, being resilient in the face of struggle comes naturally whereas for others, this is something we must actively work towards. Through the therapeutic process, I strive to help you to uncover your own resiliency and inner strength to persevere in the face of struggle.
