Approach

I strongly believe that the collaborative relationship between counsellor and client is the most important aspect of your success, so I work hard to create an environment of warmth, trust, safety, and respect. This environment facilitates the healthy, collaborative process required to foster personal growth and change. I am committed to quality, evidence-based therapeutic practices to improve emotional and relational well-being.
