About

Having someone you feel safe enough to confide in about the issues you have been facing is the first step towards making meaningful change. I want to listen to you deeply. Your goals may be to build a strong sense of identity and self, handle life's pressures, manage emotions or moods, or improve the relationships in your life so that you feel strong, healthy and content; whatever the goal may be, I am here to support you.

You are a unique individual and as such, the therapeutic approach and journey we will take together will be integrative and collaborative by nature. By adopting a holistic perspective to this, my approach to therapy incorporates several modalities including; solution-focused, emotion-focused, narrative, anti-oppressive, culturally relevant, cognitive behavioural and mindfulness. You will benefit from our tailored approach that is specific to your hopes and desires for therapy.

Sometimes our feelings are just too much to manage on our own, if this is how you've been feeling lately, I hope that you will reach out. Together we can begin your journey towards self-discovery, well-being and balance.
