I believe that life can be all-at-once wonderful, awe-inspiring, terrifying, and difficult. It’s a privilege to experience our lifetimes but that does not mean that life is not also frequently full of hardship. Learning about ourselves and how to best serve ourselves and our loves ones is difficult. However, being resilient and adaptable can help us lead a fulfilling, purposeful life.
My practice is rooted in a belief in the value of people, and that there is another side to all pain. In fact, this pain can be informative. Seeking help in times of trouble, when you are struggling, or when a valuable element of your life could be improved, is smart and brave. If you’re ready to step into this journey, I’d look forward to getting to know you.
People come for assessments and to therapy for lots of different reasons, whether that be exploration and clarity, tools and strategies, or a bridge to the other side of what’s happening now. Most of all, I care about what is meaningful to you, and will work with you to figure out what it is that you really want from the space that we create together. Part of my job is to bear witness and if you need somebody to just hear your story, I’m open to this too.
My approach is warm, genuine, curious, and honest. I also take a ‘say-what-needs-saying’ approach and am happy to adjust my practice to suit your needs, whether that be a slower approach or a more encouraging one.
I draw on a range of learnings to support you through Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, as well as elements of Schema Therapy, positive psychology, my creativity, and your own insights. My practice is evidence-based, trauma-informed, client-led and strengths-affirming. My goal is not just to alleviate suffering, but to encourage flourishing.
I have a particular interest in how we function as a community and society and look forward to working with all ages including the parents and families of my child and adolescent clients.
