I am a clinical psychologist offering psychotherapy to adolescents and adults. I work psychodynamically, meaning I believe in the unconscious, and that our feelings about ourselves and others are often rooted in our early experiences. At the same time, I am attuned to the social factors that shape our ways of living in the world, and consider each individual holistically in their context.

My approach to therapy includes providing psychological support to people, with a consciousness of their contexts and intersections. Areas of practice include psychotherapeutic interventions for depression, anxiety, complex trauma and post-traumatic stress, psychoeducation and trauma debriefing. I also conduct psychological assessments (career, occupational placement, intelligence, aptitude, personality, neuro, and projective assessments). In my work I advocate for inclusivity and access to mental health and rehabilitation services. I have conducted research around the intersections of identity, personality, power and violence.

My ideal client has taken the first step of bravery to delve deeper into whatever is troubling their hearts. I imagine them to set expectations and goals for me to mark what they would like to achieve within my practice. I imagine my client to want a safe space, which I will gladly hold for them. I imagine them to be openminded, willing to learn and actually work on themselves. Healing is not linear, and it definitely takes them doing their inner work to heal. I imagine for my clients to not be dependent on me, but rather see me as their crutch or someone to hold their hand in times where their life does not feel balanced.

Our personal journey is filled with ups and downs, highs and lows, moments of joy and incidences of hardship. As we ebb and flow through life, there may be times where difficulties arise and our usual ways of coping lose their effectiveness. Engaging in therapy can prove beneficial in navigating these challenges, providing a possible path for healing and growth. Entering into a therapeutic relationship is not only for the difficult times, but also for those moments of clarity, a sounding board upon which the healthy mind can evolve and discover new ways of being.

I help LGBTQ+ (or questioning) and marginalized people struggling with identity development, sex/sexual health issues, relational trauma & self-worth/self-esteem, cultivate a fulfilling relationship with themself and others within the context of rigid cultural expectations. Feeling seen is a human need, and often, in an effort to be accepted we push down the very parts of ourselves that make us unique in favor of accomplishment, likability and to avoid punishment or embarrassment.

My therapy style is non-judgemental and collaborative; creating a warm, trusting and authentic space where clients can explore new insights into themselves while being equipped with skills to bring about constructive change and alleviate distress. Whilst I am guided by evidence-based psychological interventions, such as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), I acknowledge that mental health is multifaceted and subsequently my approach is strengths-based and holistic. This includes acknowledging the connection between the mind and body and thus considering the role of mental, physical and social factors on overall health and wellbeing.

I believe that every person can benefit from seeing a psychologist to work through their challenges. I enjoy working with individuals who want to understand their minds, behaviours and how their past and present may impact their futures. I focus on talk-based and somatic psychotherapy, integrating various psychological approaches based on your needs. My passion for holistic mental health care stems from the belief that all parts of us are intimately interconnected, and we do not exist in isolation.

Along this life journey we may get thrown a curve ball and may be facing difficulties that feel overwhelming and our usual coping mechanisms fail us. A soldier can only run so far on a wounded limb, until they pay attention to it and dress it up for healing. So it is with life. We may need to tend to, dress, and heal the wounds. Therapy can be a powerful mechanism of healing, growth and restoration.

Female Counsellors

Does it matter what gender my therapist is?

In general, this is not an important factor, as there is no relationship between a therapist’s gender and their efficacy. Some clients, however, prefer to see therapists of a particular gender, whether due to their own past experiences with men and women, or ingrained beliefs about how people of different genders think and behave. Exploring the roots of such preferences and considering what one wants to address in therapy can help someone determine whether their therapist’s gender truly matters to them.

Should I see a female therapist?

Many people—not just women—prefer to see a female therapist, either because they believe that a woman will be able to relate to their specific challenges (for example, sexism in the workplace) or because they imagine feeling more comfortable disclosing sensitive information to a woman. Such beliefs may not turn out to be accurate, however, and adhering too rigidly to a gender preference can at times hinder a client from finding the best therapeutic match.

Do therapists get specific training to help with women’s concerns?

Therapists are trained to provide care to clients of any gender. However, some therapists—both men and women—may pursue additional training in feminist therapy, gender-specific issues, or women’s mental health. Female clients may wish to ask prospective therapists whether they have received specific training in the client’s primary area(s) of concern, or whether they have worked extensively with women on issues similar to their own.

How can I inquire about a therapist’s experience in treating women?

It’s OK—even encouraged!—to ask a therapist directly whether and how often they have treated women in the past, or whether they have treated women dealing with the client’s most prominent concern(s). Competent therapists will be happy to share their educational background, preferred treatment modalities, and prior client experience to help an individual find the therapist best suited to their needs.
