"Therapy is the process of coming to a deeper understanding of ourselves and how we approach the world while contained in the therapeutic relationship. I aim to create a safe, compassionate, and collaborative space to explore why patterns of thinking and interacting have become painful. In my experience, this process leads to improved relationships and communication, greater confidence and enjoyment in life, relief from feeling stuck, strengthened coping skills to manage life stressors, and progress towards one's inherent potential to thrive.

Perhaps, you wonder if you can ever be in a happy healthy relationship, because many people in your life seem unreliable, manipulative, and uncaring. Maybe you are starting to feel as though you may be better off alone because you doubt whether you will be able to connect with people who value you for who you are.

"Many individuals and couples approach me for therapy feeling they've hit a road block in their lives and are confused and frustrated in their attempts to grow beyond it. They are often uncertain - both about their capacity to change and about whether therapy can help. Couples may be hopeful or discouraged about transforming their repeated patterns of conflict or distance, but know that significant changes are needed if their relationship is to regain a sense of joy and strength. The art of therapy involves reaching beyond solving a particular problem and exploring the opportunites for growth embedded within it."

"The intimate relationship that develops in therapy requires being willing to be known deeply. Crisis, uncertainty, unwanted patterns, self doubt, harsh self-criticism or anxiety often lead people to therapy. Addressing internal conflict is a private and individual process. It is an opportunity to understand yourself better and to experience being understood by another. In the security of a consulting room, there is also space to consider the impact of social & cultural influences such as privilege, race/racism, a new mental health diagnosis, sexuality, gender, being donor conceived and other identity-related aspects of self."
