Reaching out for support can be frightening and overwhelming. While it takes courage to start therapy, it can also be rewarding and transformational. I believe change and personal growth can happen at any age. Therapy can provide the support we need when we feel stuck, alone or overwhelmed.
I am an Occupational Therapist and a certified Gestalt Therapist. I have worked with adults with mental health concerns in hospital, community and private practice settings. I work with individuals who are experiencing a variety of challenges such as anxiety, depression, low self-worth, family/relationship challenges, life transitions, loneliness, grief/loss, ageing issues, caregiver burnout, stress and trauma.
I integrate my Gestalt approach with my training in IFS (Internal Family Systems), somatic therapy, CBT (Cognitive Behaviour Therapy) and DBT (Dialectical Behaviour Therapy). From my background in Occupational Therapy, I bring a holistic, practical perspective and use my integrated skills to help you explore your struggles which prevent you from living a more fulfilling and meaningful life.
In my psychotherapy practice, I welcome adult clients with diverse backgrounds and issues. We will talk about and identify feelings and help you process your emotions. We will explore your personal triggers and how they impact your life, enabling you to move forward. We will look at your patterns of behaviours that may have helped you cope in the past but are no longer serving you.
I believe in respecting and meeting you where you are at. I offer a compassionate and non-judgemental therapeutic environment to ensure you feel comfortable and safe to express yourself openly. I provide warmth and care with my clients while encouraging them to gradually challenge themselves so that they can initiate the change they are hoping for. My goal is to provide clients with the tools necessary to better their own personal circumstances and embrace their authentic selves.
Feel free to email me. I offer a free 20 minute consultation over the phone. I am meeting with clients online.
