My Approach To Therapy

My highest aim as your therapist is to co-create a lasting and genuine healing relationship, one where you feel supported to express yourself authentically and make the changes necessary in your life to live, love and work wholeheartedly.

Working from a psychodynamic lens, the emphasis of therapy is on bringing more awareness to the areas of your life where you are stuck, confused or out of balance. This can include early childhood experiences, current relationship difficulties, work-life balance concerns and other personal challenges.

Together we will explore the issues, concerns and challenges that are coming up for you and how they are getting in the way of you living the life you want. Over time, our insight into your psychological landscape, combined with the emotional skill set therapy brings can greatly increase your mental, emotional, physical and spiritual well-being.

Please contact me if you are interested in exploring psychotherapy. I would be honored to work with you.
