I help all kinds of people with all kinds of issues and you should never think that what you're feeling is unworthy of therapy.

I’m passionate about helping people overcome their problems and achieve the change they are looking for in their lives. I never judge clients but I’m also not afraid, when it’s in their interest, to challenge them. Each client teaches me something new about therapy and life in general. For me, therapy is very much a partnership – a road along which both I and my clients travel.

I’m fascinated by people and how life affects their mental health in different ways. I worked from an integrative perspective and adapt my approach based on the client and their issues. I have experience across a broad range of mental health issues. Much of this experience I’ve picked up during my 18 years in the health psychology and medical industry.
