So much of life is spent facing challenges that we often do not feel equipped to overcome on our own – have you ever felt the desire, deep down, to grow and achieve but feel held back by self-doubt, fear, anxiety, and insecurity? I know I have. It is my belief that, with the right support, tools, and inner dialogue, people are capable of improving how they show up in their lives. It is my philosophy that we can never underestimate the value of our past experiences and we will focus on drawing upon your strengths and resilience to help you navigate life’s challenges and tap into your potential.
My approach to the therapeutic process prioritizes the client-therapist relationship – we are a team – and draws up two areas of mental wellness: (1) sport psychology of elite performance to help you develop a vision, set goals, actualize potential, and live with intention, and (2) physiological approaches such as physical activity, exercise, and health.
With my hybrid approach to mental wellness, it would be my privilege to help you explore areas of your life where you feel you are in need of guidance, support you in your pursuit of improving mental wellness, and work together to face life’s challenges with confidence and resilience.
