I see our relationship as an important aspect of the therapeutic process. When I first meet you I focus primarily on understanding your needs and if I am someone you can relate to
and communicate with.
Therapy can be challenging and I believe it is important to work on building mutual trust
between us, working with respect and integrity in a holding and confidential environment in a supportive and collaborative way, to help facilitate growth and change.
I work with adults and teenagers offering both long and short term therapy to individuals and groups.
I work with a wide range of psychological, emotional and relational problems.
I also offer supervision to individuals and groups.
