"Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony" - Mahatma Gandhi

Whether you’re struggling with a stressful situation or ongoing mental health concerns, these instances can make it difficult to see a way forward. They may lead you feeling overwhelmed, but with the guidance of a psychotherapist, it becomes possible to discover a clearer path to navigate through them. In my practice, I focus on ensuring you feel safe, listened to and well supported. I take a gentle approach, making certain that we move at a comfortable pace and discuss the concerns that are important to you when you feel ready. My goal is to alleviate your distress, thereby helping you to address your concerns.

I use evidence-based interventions, such as cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, polyvagal theory, narrative therapy, and mindful self-compassion techniques, tailoring my approach to support your desired changes and to meet your specific needs. I can also assist you in developing skills for emotion regulation, process traumatic experiences, foster a greater sense of connection with others and improve your ability to live in the present moment.

I feel privileged when clients choose to share their stories with me and I welcome the opportunity to help you in making sense of your experiences and guiding you towards healing and growth. Please don’t hesitate to reach out for a complimentary phone or video consultation, during which I will be available to address any questions you may have.
