Hello! With over 9 years of experience in the areas of psychiatry and mental health, I have had the oppotunity to work with individuals, couples, and families experiencing an array of psychosocial stressors and mental health issues. I have a passion for mental healtlh and my expertise covers issues such as anxiety, depression, self-esteem, relationships, attachment, parenting, peri and post natal mental health and trauma. I am also an Accredited Family Mediator, participating in the government program (subsidized), and work with couples through the process of separation, family conflict and co-parenting planning.
I work from an attachment based, emotionally focused lens, while also drawing from psychodynamic, cognitive behavioural and solutions focused approaches, depending on client need. My aim is to provide a safe and collaborative space to support clients in achieving their goals, increasing their coping strategies, and developing a better sense of well-being.
I understand how difficult it can be to take that first step. It is my hope that my expertise, non-judgemental and warm approach can accompany you through the process, wherever it may be for you.
