Are you looking to heal from traumatic experiences? Do you want to escape from overwhelming anxiety or depression and feel happier? I am here to take you on a healing journey . I combine the ability to give a comprehensive diagnosis with compassionate, warm, culturally-sensitive psychotherapy.
I am committed to facilitating your process of self-discovery and more importantly clarity. I offer a warm, safe space where we can identify issues of conflict and remove the stumbling blocks that are interfering with personal growth and happiness.
Life is full of overwhelming feelings and emotions. If you need help coping with anxiety, stress, depression and fear I can help. Known as a good listener full of empathy and compassion, I love helping people draw on their strengths to overcome their challenges and live up to their potential.
Counselling is like going to the gym for your brain. Most don't realize that they've developed patterns and ways of thinking that enforce negative feelings and experiences. I'd like to work with you to help you not just overcome your struggles but also be freed from your self-defeating beliefs.
