I provide a safe, non-judgmental space for my clients to explore difficulties they are facing so that they are empowered to overcome challenges and can look forward to better days ahead. As an Integrative Counsellor, I provide a progressive form of psychotherapy that combines different therapeutic tools and approaches to fit the needs of the individual client. I modify standard treatments to fill in development gaps that affect each client in different ways and allows me to offer a more flexible and inclusive approach to treatment than more traditional, singular forms of psychotherapy.
