“I have always been inspired by the strength that people can cultivate in the face of suffering that is a common part of the course of life. As a fellow human being who shares in that pain, I approach therapy with a humble, genuine, and non-judgemental approach, where I aim to create a safe and trusting therapeutic space for the person.”

I draw upon my training in psychology, and academic and clinical experiences, to embark on a therapeutic journey with my clients, exploring the meaning of their problems, and nurturing self-awareness, compassion, and resources that can enable them to reconnect with what is personally meaningful.
