About me

Welcome and thank you for checking my profile!

Sometimes negative events happen and we may feel overwhelmed by difficult thoughts and feelings. The way we cope with these negative thoughts and feelings can make a big difference in our ability to "move forward" and to pursue a fulfilling and meaningful life.

Amongst other things, therapy can help you to make sense of how your problems developed and were maintained over time; to find more adaptive ways to cope with your difficult thoughts and feelings; to explore what is important and meaningful to you (your values); and to take committed action towards them.

With over ten years of clinical experience, I work with adults offering both short-term and long-term therapy, and can help you with a wide range of difficulties.
