When life throws us difficulties it can be a challenge to face them. Engaging in psychotherapy can be a bit like teaming up with a tour guide on your journey through the chaos of life. When we feel lost and hopeless it helps to have someone pull out a map and and help us rediscover who we really are and where we are going.
In individual psychotherapy I work with you one-on-one to find your path to healing. I offer a safe, compassionate space where you can openly and confidentially explore your thoughts, emotions, feelings and behaviours.
My aim is to offer you more than a simple band-aid solution for your symptoms. My hope is to help you dig deep down, under the surface, to find the roots of your pain, finding deep, lasting healing. Looking deeply within can allow you to find a greater depth of being, personal expansion, greater self-understanding, deeper meaning and purpose in life and to have closer intimate relationships.
