I’ve been taught by some amazing therapists and use a systemic lens and attachment theory to guide my work. Both partners are part of the solution. I am interested in the role of family of origin and past experiences in our relationships, and will give you evidence-based strategies to help you get back to connection and intimacy. I have completed extensive training in Emotionally-Focused Therapy for couples, the most evidence-based couples therapy; however, my approach is eclectic and must be adapted for the couple.
Family Therapy for
I work warmly and sensitively, so that I understand each family member’s concerns clearly. I will also take direction in sessions, so that everyone feels heard. You will come to understand the patterns of conflict or behaviour that get you ‘stuck’, and learn strategies to change these patterns, and to communicate with more calm and empathy. I do family therapy with adult family systems only.
Individual Therapy for Adults
Empathy is the cornerstone of my work with you, and seeking to understand, so that you gain insight about your concerns. I will use a variety of therapeutic interventions including Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Mindfulness, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, and approaches from Schema Therapy. I am flexible in my use of these modalities, and we explore together what treatment best fits you.
I offer phone and video therapy sessions (using Zoom), and have been doing this for some time. Your care is my priority and I assure you these modalities have comparable outcomes to ‘face to face therapy’.
I’ve been a board-approved supervisor since 2016, and really love this role. My style is warm and collaborative, with a focus on ‘self as therapist’ and skills building.
I’ve supported provisional psychologists completing the 4+2 and 5+1 programs, as well as clinical psychology registrars. Supervisees tend to find me a good mix of empathic and direct, within a safe space to thrive. Your self-care and well-being is seen as critical to your work.
A standard consultation is 50 minutes
