My work is dedicated to helping people develop healthy relationships and productive, satisfying lives. You may be experiencing depression, anxiety, a difficult situation, a sense that somehow your life is not working out as you’d like. It would be my privilege to work with you.

I am trained with the Albert Ellis Institute of New York and specialise in Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT)- an effective form of CBT that supplements several psychotherapy techniques such as psychodynamic therapy.

I am also trained with Beck’s Institute for Cognitive Behavior Therapy and specialize in CBT for Anxiety & MBCT (Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy ) to effectively treat common anxiety disorders including generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, social anxiety disorder.

For my clients I strive to provide a caring, supportive and comfortable atmosphere in which to practice our work together. My genuine compassion for others, as well as my sense of humor and warm nature help to achieve this goal.

Couples therapy and individual psychotherapy for adults are offered by my practice. My approach to treatment is based on a solution-focused perspective, and I largely follow an evidence-based RECBT  approach with individuals, but ultimately take into consideration a client’s unique strengths, needs, preferences and challenges when determining the most beneficial course of treatment.

I utilize additional or alternative techniques and approaches depending on the unique needs of each client.

Additionally, since research has proven time and again that the best therapeutic results come from a good working relationship between client and therapist, an emphasis is placed on building trust and rapport, and providing an informal yet professional environment.
