On this page I’ll elaborate on my therapeutic style, education and experience as a psychologist.
English being my second language makes me attuned to the subtle nuances of its vocabulary and terminology, and guarantees certain proficiency.
More information about the practical aspects of therapy can be found in the ‘Getting Started’ section.
Go to Psychotherapy101 if you want to more know about my work geared towards other mental health professionals.
Core principles in my work are compassion, authenticity, humour and professionality. I believe that each of us is capable of actualizing our best self and living a life with meaningful relationships and fulfilling experiences.
My therapy practice is devoted to providing a personal experience that helps clients create the time and space to explore themselves. I believe we can work through the pain of our past or current experiences to create enduring change that is satisfying and rewarding. The possibility of a future unlike our past can be realized, but it requires patience, commitment and energy. I am here to support you through that process with skill and care.
My clinical style is inspired by client-centered therapy which is focussed on empathy, authenticity, acceptance, emotion and the importance of the therapeutic relationship.
Having dealt with my own obstacles through therapy in the past I know how hard, but also how rewarding and fulfilling the process can be. My experiences help me to relate on a more profound level with my clients.
Sometimes you just need someone to listen and help you put things in perspective, without there being a severe psychological problem. This is also something we can discuss.
Feel free to contact me if you’re not sure if we can work together regarding your problem.
