Life can be wonderful, but it can also present us with many challenges. Whether you are dealing with relationship issues, depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, a major life transition or stressful life event, adolescent or parenting issues, or simply want a better understanding of yourself and others, therapy can be a helpful journey to bring about healing, insight and change. As a therapist with over 12 years of experience, my therapeutic style would best be described as integrative, as I draw from a variety of perspectives and techniques including CBT, psychodynamic, solution focused, trauma informed, family systems and play therapy.

I enjoy working with adults, adolescents and school age children. I treat a variety of issues, including depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, trauma, self harm, grief, life transitions, family conflict, relationship conflict, parenting issues, ADHD, school anxiety/avoidance/refusal, and adolescent issues.
