As a Psychologist, I aim to provide my clients with an environment that fosters safety, empathy and collaboration. My therapeutic style is compassionate, warm, and down to earth. I place great importance on the therapeutic relationship, to ensure that we work together  throughout the process towards your therapeutic goals. 

I have extensive experience working with complex psychopathology across the lifespan in forensic, government, and private settings. I am experienced in working with a range of complex clinical presentations, such as trauma, mood-based disorders, psychosis, personality disorders, and self-injury. My therapeutic approach is an integrative form of psychotherapy, using the most current evidenced-based techniques. My practice is based off of the core belief that each individual has the inherent capacity to not only overcome adversity, but to also live a meaningful and fulfilling life.

The therapeutic approach I take involves a balance of psychotherapy with an integration of specific techniques. My work is based on the principles of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), psychodynamic therapy, and the three-phased approach to the treatment of trauma. Throughout our work together, I aim to assist you in developing a stronger sense of self, improve your wellbeing, develop more adaptive coping mechanisms, and re-connect you with what matters most to you.
