Are you in need of an in-depth, reflective, supportive dialogue? Maybe you feel that something needs to change in your life but are not sure what or how; or are going through a challenging transition; or feel you’re not quite being the person you’d like to be; or are struggling with a difficult decision. If that's you, I can help you to to make sense of things and move forward by disentangling what really matters to you from old or habitual beliefs; understanding the old, unhelpful patterns that are holding you back; and opening the way to new possibilities so you can start moving towards rather than away from what you value.

Being a human is hard. Each and every one of us, at some point in our lives, finds ourselves lost and stuck. We realize that this is not the life we planned for, that we are not the people we wanted to be and we are not moving any closer to the life we want. My work focuses on helping people settle into those stuck moments, work on the uncomfortable thoughts and feelings, and to take steps toward the life that they want. I strongly believe that psychotherapy is not only a place to overcome certain difficulties, but also an opportunity for individuals to get to know themselves better and live a meaningful life.

Psychotherapy can help you with such difficulties as: relationship problems, life transitions, depression, anxiety, identity confusion, and anger. People who engage in individual therapy often speak of improvements in the quality of their relationships, increased confidence and a growing ability to take risks and make changes in their lives. Problems in partner relationships can be complex and sometimes destructive and limiting, with roots in childhood difficulties. Couples therapy seeks to understand the underlying issues and conflicts, resolve difficulties and find an agreed way forward.

An opportunity to pause and understand where we are and what is happening in our lives right now. It is a place to explore past and present events or traumas and a space to speak out loud thoughts that had previously been unspeakable.
