Currently not accepting new clients.
It takes courage, self-awareness and vulnerability to face our struggles. It also takes courage to engage in psychotherapy and to let someone else ‘in’. I believe that healing comes in many different ways, and yet I am convinced that crucial to this process is that we experience enough safety to allow ourselves to be seen, heard and accepted for who we are.
Psychotherapy, and the relationship between client and therapist, can be one of those spaces in our lives where we dare to be honest. As we encounter parts of ourselves that are hurting, we can discover how to be with those parts of ourselves in a new way, which often leads to transformation.
I also believe we carry our experiences not just in our minds but in our bodies as well. As such, I draw on both cognitive and somatic techniques in my work, seeking to attend to thoughts, emotions, as well as one’s experience in their body.
Whatever your reasons for seeking therapy at this time, I would love the opportunity to collaborate with you in attending to you, your situation and your experience. I work from an anti-oppression framework that is trauma and attachment informed. I support clients to discover and draw upon both inner and external resources in working toward their goals in therapy. I am committed to offering a non-judgemental and compassionate space to support you in doing the personal work that is in front of you in this season.
