In my approach to psychotherapy and counselling I emphasize the importance of developing self-knowledge as a way to bring about personal growth and psychological healing.  Your ability to learn about and understand yourself in the context of the relational and physical world within which you live is enhanced with the help of a therapist who is trained to see, hear, and relate in particular ways.  Psychotherapy is a long-term process of psychological integration, intended to create lasting change.  Counselling is short term and intended to clarify problems and identify possible solutions.

My practice includes work with adult men and women presenting with relationship problems, depression, anxiety, personality problems, anger, family of origin issues, abuse and trauma, addictions, grief, existential and major life transition issues, career and workplace issues, conflicts with the law...and more
