Announcement icon In light of the COVID-19 pandemic all psychotherapy sessions are being conducted via teletherapy at this time.
Is anxiety taking over your life? Does it feel like you can’t control it no matter how hard you try? Are you feeling hopeless, isolated and not your usual self? Whether you struggle with anxiety, depression, self-esteem or any other issue, anyone of us could use a little help to work through some of life’s more difficult times. Through a collaborative process, I can help you to explore and examine your life in a way that can be empowering and transformational. I'll help you develop the tools you need to overcome life’s challenges, and promote healing and personal growth.
Choosing to participate in psychotherapy is a big decision. It can be anxiety provoking to sit in front of a stranger and share intimate details about your life. My style is interactive and relaxed with a healthy balance between personable and professional. I provide a safe, supportive and non-judgmental space where you can feel comfortable.
I have over 10 years of clinical experience working with clients from all different backgrounds. Every person is different and so I tailor my treatment in a way that is unique to you by integrating CBT, mindfulness and psychodynamic approaches. I love what I do as a psychologist, and I would be glad to support you on your journey to live your best life.
