I specialize in psychological counselling services for adolescents and adults. I help those who are struggling with feelings of anxiousness, inadequacy, depressed mood, or who have relationships that are difficult to cope with. Counselling can help to resolve these feelings and bring more happiness into your life. Please visit the website for more information on areas of practice and how counselling can help you.
I work collaboratively with clients and emphasize an empathic client-therapist relationship. During the first session the process of therapy is discussed, personal information is gathered including reasons for pursuing counselling, and the therapeutic relationship begins. Subsequent sessions work towards reducing symptoms and reaching goals.
