In working with clients, I believe that getting to know them and their life circumstances is essential to being able to help them. Therefore, providing a safe space to explore their past, present, and future is vital to therapy working. I am here to support you through active listening, without judgment, and with compassion for your concerns, fears, and hopes.
My therapy style combines talk therapy (open dialogue), to help explore the past, present, and future, and structured therapy which works on helping to identify thought processes and ways of changing or coping with them. A combined approach to therapy helps keep our sessions relaxed while also remaining structured so that you are able to see your progress, identify areas of growth, and reach your goals.
I work best with professionals or creatives, mid 20s to 50s, who are experiencing anxiety and/or depression, especially those who have made a recent life transition, are about to, or have been impacted by a recent event. I am also experienced in working with clients who struggle with all forms of addiction and are looking for ongoing therapeutic support.
