“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths.

 

These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern.

 

Beautiful people do not just happen.”

 

-Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

Psychologist

I have experience working with people from all walks of life and with complex presentations. I believe that therapy is the coming together of two experts – the therapist with their psychological expertise and the client with expert knowledge of what works best in their unique circumstances.

 

I possess a warm and empathetic therapeutic style. I value building a strong connection to create a safe space for healing and growth. I find that authenticity and humour in therapy facilitate the counselling process. In sessions, I provide structure and employ a practical and analytical approach to empower people to live their fullest lives.

 

I’ve discovered a fiery passion to help people journey towards mental well-being. I believe that the human spirit is indomitable. I’ve discovered that people have the wisdom and tenacity to navigate through life’s challenges.

 

In a safe therapeutic space, I feel honoured with the privilege of being invited in to clients’ most personal, cognitive and emotional experience. In times like these, I’ve found my ‘ikigai’. Ikigai is a Japanese concept that means your ‘reason for being’ and involves four primary elements: what you love (your passion), what the world needs (your mission), what you are good at (your vocation), and what you can get paid for (your profession).
