About me and my therapy practice

My Psychotherapy practice experience relates to an insight into the human psyche in how unconscious processes impact and affect client's lived experience. Working through core internal and external relationships, transformative insight guides the therapeutic process to establish a greater sense of Self toward personal growth. My clients respond to a deeper way of working with the unconscious dimensions of their psyche, using dreams, difference and creativity to awaken consciousness and facilitate desired psychological outcomes toward change.

The use of the title Dr in this directory listing relates to the member’s doctorate qualification. However, this does not imply a general medical qualification.

Practice description

I have a facilitative style of relational psychtherapy, dream analysis, and process work orientated to meet life's challenges. In the therapeutic relationship, the work is toward relational growth and the untangling of complexes. My work is transformation focused awakening emotional regulation, personality integration, process guidance, individuation, and a client's Self-work.

If you have an interest in personal work, please feel free to contact me at with a brief introduction and I can set up an initial appointment to discuss the potential of working together.

My first session

The initial appointment is facilitated as a full session in person or online, in which we open dialogue concerning the work and assessing if we are a good fit for working therapeutically together. Fixed weekly or biweekly work is my preferred format for working with clients.
