Therapy Services & Approach

I offer both short term and long term psychotherapy to adults who are stressed, stuck or feeling dissatisfied with life.

Clinically trained in psychodynamic psychotherapy, I use a range of talking therapies to help relieve symptoms, depending on an individual's needs.

I believe experiences in life create patterns in the way we view ourselves, our expectations of others and how we relate in the world. In therapy, together we explore what is happening in your current life and reflect on the ways the past might be influencing your present. I have found that understanding these often unconscious patterns allows real change, more satisfying relationships and inner peace.

Areas of Special Interest

I have worked with adults experiencing a wide range of challenges, including relationship issues, work stress, anxiety, depression, disordered eating, grief and loss. I have a special interest in helping with the transition to parenthood.
