My Approach to Helping

Are you tired of feeling unhappy, sad and anxious? Do you feel inadequate, unworthy and stuck in a situation or a life you don't want? Are you tired of being an over-achiever and working hard, and still feeling a void in your life? If so, psychotherapy may be right for you. Imagine you could feel calm and at peace, that you could feel connected to your true authentic self. Imagine you could feel more present in your life, confident, and connected to others. Imagine that you could leave behind the fear, guilt, and shame that has held you back and that you could look to the future with goals, dreams, and self love.

In therapy I offer you a safe, confidential space to talk about anything that may be difficult and painful. I am a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) and a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional. I work with individuals who are struggling with a range of issues, including the consequences of childhood abuse and neglect, and women's mental health.

I will work with you to identify and work towards your short term andor long term goals. I will listen intently, offer guidance and support you in your journey. It is not always easy letting someone into our pain, but the results can be transformational. I invite you to take the courageous step to embark on your psychotherapy journey to healing.
