Healing Through Connection

The Healing Art of Therapy

You may find yourself feeling stuck, overwhelmed by anxiety, stress or life choices, or in need of support managing intense emotions after the birth of your baby. I have over 18 years’ experience supporting adolescents and adults to heal and make lasting changes. I support clients with developing insight, healing attachment wounds, and building security. I am influenced by the belief that we all have inner wisdom that guides us to pursue a life that is authentic and fulfulling.

I believe therapy can help us work through obstacles that prevent us from living fully, especially when it is grounded in an empathic and non-judgemental relationship.

It takes a lot of strength to face yourself. Don't let the weight of what you uncover fool you into thinking you're weak.
