About me and my therapy practice

As a versatile therapist, I enjoy using a range of methods including person-centred, psychodynamic, CBT, trauma-focused, somatic, and more. This allows me to tailor my approach to better meet your needs as an individual or a couple.

I strive to create a warm and inclusive space where people of all genders, races, ages, abilities, and backgrounds can feel comfortable bringing their true selves without shame or judgment.

I don't subscribe to a 'one size fits all' approach. Instead, I integrate insights from diverse therapeutic modalities like person-centred, psychodynamic, CBT, emotion-focused therapy, and somatic practices. I believe in tailoring therapy to fit the unique needs of each individual and couple. Your journey is unique, and your therapy sessions should reflect that.

My first session

Starting therapy or even beginning with a new therapist can be daunting. To ensure I am the right fit for you, I offer a free 20-minute intro video call. This gives you the opportunity to ask any question you may have about my practice and approach, what to expect, what I have experience in, etc...

Once we decide to work together, I will ask a few questions during the first session to get an overview of your lifestyle, current challenges, potential past traumas and existing coping strategies. Together, we will define your goals for therapy and how often we should review our work together.
