I believe that we all have the ability to make changes to our lives and to ourselves, leading us to live a more content and happy life. These changes are not always easy to make and I believe that it is my role as a psychologist to help my clients discover the tools that can identify and facilitate these changes.
I have experience working with a diverse range of people facing challenges such as depression, anxiety, drug and alcohol addiction, trauma, stress, and grief and lost. I have worked with adults, young people, couples, the LGBTQ community as well as members from many different ethnic backgrounds.
As an applied positive psychologist, I draw on and develop positive approaches to my practice.
