About

My areas of specialty include marriage/couple's counselling, counselling children using play therapeutic techniques, psychometric assessments to assist with career counselling and subject choice, suicidality, mood and behavioural changes, sexual identity concerns, transitions, family counselling, trauma, bereavement/grief/loss and anger management.
I mainly use a Person Centred approach to counselling combined with techniques from IMAGO, Gottman, BioPsychoSocial, Cognitive Behavioural/Rational Emotive Behavioural, Existentialism, Gestalt, Mindfulness and Narrative.
I believe in the healing power of human connection and empathetic understanding without judgement. I strive to create a safe and secure environment for every client to feel safe while expressing their emotions. The client and I work together as a team and I take into account their unique concerns/situation in order to achieve the best outcomes.
