I am an experienced, inviting, engaged and compassionate therapist who enjoys helping people create and maintain healthy relationships with themselves and others. I provide a supportive, challenging, non-judgemental therapeutic environment so that you can feel safe exploring any issue that may arise.
It is my job to help you process feelings, question patterns, change unhelpful thinking and behavior, practice essential communication skills, understand yourself and your partner(s) better and learn the tools to better cope with the complex journey that is your life and your intimate relationships.
