Our lives are our own personal stories. My job as a psychotherapist is to help you to understand, appreciate and live your story in ways that feel more vital, authentic and meaningful to you.
I would like to welcome you into a space where there will be no judgement, from me, around what has brought you into therapy. My journey has taught me that true expression and trust can only be nurtured in an environment of acceptance. I would like to provide the support than you need, in a friendly and caring way, to help you open up to the possibility of sharing yourself and your struggles with more ease.
I work with a broad range of people, and offer Brief Therapy, Full Therapy, as well as on-line therapy. I’m non-judgmental, empathic and sincere. I’m also happy to offer a complimentary first meeting.
People come to therapy for many reasons, usually because they are not happy with something in their lives. My role as a therapist is to help facilitate a process that results ultimately in positive change. It is you, the client, who does the actual work, but I help to create an environment where that work is possible. I believe that people will naturally move towards wholeness given the right conditions and that they have the resources available to deal with the challenges life brings them.
Therapy is a process where two hearts and two minds meet and where the client is encouraged to unfold and examine his or her life story. A therapist requires tenderness and maturity in working with clients, allowing the client to express, in his or her own time any number of emotions, so that healing and transformation can happen and they can begin to see themselves as unique human beings.
Therapy is about feeling better about yourself, extending to feeling better about your whole life situation. This may mean making changes in your life, or just learning to become comfortable with yourself. I work to create an atmosphere of trust between myself and my clients, supporting the individuals I work with to move forward in their lives.
I believe that when people understand themselves better, it allows them to create positive change, recognize negative patterns, and make more positive life choices. In my work with clients, I aim to create a deeper self-understanding through a strong, non-judgmental, therapeutic relationship. with which to approach problems.
Have a particular life obstacle you’re trying to overcome? Sometimes, seeking help from a qualified professional is the best way to put things into perspective. As a committed, Registered Psychotherapist, your well-being and mental strength is my number one priority – and I’m happy to guide you through all of life’s challenges. I offer all my clients the attention and care they deserve, and have all the tools and expertise to help you get ahead. I offer in office, telephone and skype sessions.
I am an experienced and caring therapist, working with individuals on a range of issues, from anxiety, addiction and aging to trauma, loss, parenting and relationship problems.
My clients say that I am warm, non-judgemental and successful in helping them identify issues and solutions. I believe everyone has the answers to their own problems. I am committed to helping you find these answers.
As a therapist, I offer a kind, non-judgmental setting where clients can safely reveal their thoughts and feelings. For me, therapy has two basic objectives: Wisdom and Integrity. Wisdom is the combination of knowledge and experience, applied thoughtfully to life situations. With the help of an aware, accepting psychotherapist, self-reflection comes more easily, paving the way for positive change. Integrity is a state of wholeness. When we are overtaken by inner conflict, we easily succumb to anxiety, addictions, depression or despair. Psychotherapy is an integrative process that helps re-establish wholeness.
Disruptive relationships and life events can continue to have distressing effects until they are safely supported and worked through. Our collaborative dialogue can help amplify personal resources and shared sources of support as well as discover perspectives and ways of being to find relief from psychological distress or trauma.

I believe that each of us wants to be his or her "best self" every day, but at times in our lives that may be difficult to
do. Sometimes this is because of troubling interpersonal relationships or patterns that we ourselves participate in but are unaware of. Developing awareness of these patterns, with a view to personal change and growth, is key to enhancing day-to- day life. We will work together to think about how to reframe your experiences and help you to achieve the necessary shifts toward the life that you wish to live.
Open a world of possibilities for yourself.
Entering therapy is an invitation to a deeper connection with yourself, with others and the world. As your therapist I will provide a supportive place for you to be seen, heard and understood in a new and healing way.
I welcome you to begin.
I have great respect for anyone who walks through my door. It takes courage to face the feelings we have avoided, to take a closer look at where we have been in denial, or to admit that we can’t do it alone any longer. We all need support. We are social creatures afterall. We need to feel accepted for who we are, and to know we’re not alone.
