I am passionate in helping others overcome difficulties and challenges in their lives. It is crucial for me that my clients feel heard and understood, and that they also feel safe to explore their thoughts and emotions at a deep and healing level.

 

My approach is holistic and I use a number of therapeutic modalities in my practice. I take the time to get to know my clients and tailor their therapy to their individual needs.
