Welcome! I believe that the therapeutic relationship is the foundation for discovery, healing, and change.

Through the therapeutic process, I integrate various counselling theories and techniques that are tailored to your uniqueness.

I am passionate about supporting clients in their journey to address barriers that prevent them from personal growth and happiness. I will work collaboratively with you to ensure you feel heard, understood, and inspired. I look forward to working together in guiding you towards a brighter, happier future!
