Congratulations on taking the first step towards self-discovery! I know that finding a therapist can be intimidating with a seemingly endless list of options to choose from. I may be the right fit for you if you’re seeking someone who is warm, empathetic, nonjudgmental and will support, yet challenge you in ways you may not have been before. Perhaps you’re going through a difficult life transition, experiencing issues within your personal relationships or feeling like something is missing in your life. Whatever you are struggling with, together, we can chart a path towards the inner peace you are looking for.


As an eclectic therapist, I draw from a diverse range of therapeutic techniques and philosophies to create a customized and holistic approach that meets your unique needs. My primary focus is on utilizing a strengths-based and person-centered approach to guide our therapeutic journey together.


I firmly believe that each person possesses a unique set of strengths and inner resources that can be harnessed to overcome life’s challenges. In our sessions, I will collaborate with you to identify and amplify these strengths. Together, we will explore your innate abilities, resilience, and past successes to build a solid foundation for personal growth and positive change. By shifting our focus towards your strengths, we can work together to develop effective strategies for addressing your concerns and achieving your goals.


Central to my therapeutic philosophy is the belief that you are the expert on your own life. Using a person-centered approach, I will create a safe, non-judgmental space where you can express your thoughts, feelings, and concerns without fear of criticism. I will actively listen and empathize with your experiences, helping you gain insight into your emotions and behaviors. Our therapeutic relationship will be built on trust and collaboration, with your goals and values at the forefront of our work together.


My goal as your therapist is to empower you to make positive changes in your life, build resilience, and embrace your inherent strengths and unique identity. I would be honoured to join you on your journey towards healing and personal growth. Please feel free to book a free 15-minute consultation with me to find out if I am the right therapist for you!
