Seeking help can often feel overwhelming and scary – yet, if you are reading this message, you have already taken one of the biggest and bravest steps in the journey towards health!
I believe that being able to meet weekly with a psychotherapist to discuss issues of distress – whether it is personal issues, relational/social problems, or even work-related stress – in a safe, confidential, and non-judgmental space can be transformative and indeed life-changing. I commend you for taking this step!
I practice primarily within the Relational Psychodynamic framework, which means that when we work together you will not have a removed or overly clinical counsellor, but a real person who meets you not simply as a ‘patient’ but as the expert of your own life! Together, we can delve into even the toughest, scariest, and unspeakable topics in a safe, non-judgmental, and confidential space. I believe that the best therapy happens when a deep trust can form between counsellor and client.
With me, you will find a warm, compassionate psychotherapist who feels honoured to meet you in all aspects of your life.
At this time, my practice is full and I am not seeing new clients, but I welcome you to contact me because I can refer you to a colleague at the Centre for Interpersonal Relationships or put you on my waitlist.

In my practice, I specialize in working with those who have faced trauma, especially through forms of abuse – emotional, physical, sexual, and self-harm. Related to my work on trauma, I provide therapy to those with Borderline Personality Disorder.
Beyond my practice as a trauma specialist, I work with adults and adolescents in an array of issues such as depression/suicidal ideation, anxiety/panic disorders, grief, loneliness, as well as eating distress and body image.
I have a passion for promoting and caring for those who often are over-looked and marginalised in society and therefore work as an ally and advocate for clients. I am often been sought out to counsel those from the LGBTQI2SA+ community, as well as ethnically and economically diverse communities.
I welcome all to my practice and believe that anyone – regardless of issue, ethnicity, gender expression/ sex / sexuality, spiritual belief, economic standing – is valuable and I seek to provide the best care to all I see.
In this video, I talk a bit about my practice and what therapy with me would look like.
