“I aim to create a safe, collaborative and nurturing space for therapy.  I individually tailor the support I offer, carefully considering context, and drawing from evidence, training and experience.  I have a strong foundation in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), but flexibly integrate, systemic and third wave approaches to support different recovery journeys.  I am experienced working with people with anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, interpersonal struggles, identity concerns and trauma.”
