We collaborate, talk, listen and share decisions about what you want and what will be the most effective way for you to achieve this. I work from the premise that each person is unique and may require different things from therapy and their therapist at any given time. No matter where you’re located or what you’re going through, there is hope. Together we will explore your experiences and make decisions about what you need to do to: improve your overall wellbeing, restore hope and re-establish connections. New to therapy or experienced, I am happy to answer all your questions. Please contact me by txt phone or e-mail to talk about how I can help or support you.
