Description

I understand the connection between the human mind and behaviours, and complex aspects of social development with potential explanations for thoughts and behaviours rooted in our social environments.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

My therapeutic approach is person-centred and trauma informed. It is my goal to provide a safe space free of judgement and bias in order to allow clients to feel comfortable sharing parts of their life story with me.

I am genuine and empathetic, and will help you build resiliency in the face of adversity and get you back to being yourself!
