Background

Due to a difficult childhood, as a young adult, I struggled with unhealthy thinking patterns that worked against me. Eventually, I came to the point where everything was falling apart around me. I didn’t seek professional help as I thought I could overcome my problems on my own. Trying to solve my negative thinking patterns and behaviours without help made my healing journey much harder than it needed to be.

I don’t want anyone to struggle as I have. Eventually, I did heal and create a better life for myself. I am so grateful that I am now a happy person with a career that I love. If I can overcome my struggles, anyone can.

I have what some might say is a “freaky Intuition.” My clients are often amazed at how well I “get” them. My warmth and empathy are key features that help my clients connect deeply with me.

Research shows that the quality of the relationship between client and therapist largely determines the success of therapy.
