A Unique Approach

I strive to create a warm, supportive therapeutic environment where you feel heard and understood.

I believe the safety of the therapeutic relationship allows you to engage in meaningful exploration of the issues that are impacting your wellbeing. Therapy is a collaborative process and my role is to empower you to achieve your goals.

I tailor my therapeutic approach to meet your unique needs, culture and life circumstances.
