Personal Statement:

Everyone has a story to tell, and I believe in creating a caring, and safe space in which to share and explore these stories. When working with children, I use their language of play in order to create change, provide supportive care and process those BIG thoughts and feelings. With adolescents and adults, I believe it is important to work from a client-centered approach and find the path that fits you best. I use play based, art, sand tray and talk therapy to work through the different struggles impacting individuals in their lives. Whether you are looking for a therapist for yourself, or your child, I look forward to sharing in your story and walking through this journey with you.

Areas of Special Interest:

Children (play based counselling supervised by a qualified Play therapist supervisor) and Adolescents, gender, sexuality, depression, anxiety, borderline personality disorder, difficulty in maintaining relationships, play based therapy, mindfulness, transitions, identity issues, and trauma. I am LGBTQ+ friendly.
