Specializing in the treatment of / resource development for:
anxiety / trauma / depression / grief / stress / performance
Maybe you are struggling after having faced an overwhelmingly difficult experience (an accident? a terrible loss? a terrible disappointment?).. Maybe something has shifted about your performance or confidence and you want to get back to your best game. Maybe you have always struggled with anxiety (or depression) and want to finally change that.
I specialize in relationship counselling for wherever you are in your relationship spectrum… single, coupled, ambivalent, hooking up, contemplating separation, divorce, opening up, or simply looking for a meaningful shift.
I am also able to support new parents, as well as parents of young children and/or teenagers, who may be facing particular challenges (whether with respect to the child or a partner/co-parent/other family involved). As an experienced clinician – and a parent myself – I bring a wealth of knowledge and skills to effectively help you through many of the unique challenges parenting often presents.
My approach to relationship therapy is informed by many years of clinical experience and formal training in Attachment Theory; Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT); Gottman’s Method; Esther Perel’s influence on Sex Therapy; and Family Systems. It is also informed by my trauma-sensitive framework and therefore comfortable for work with those facing the repercussions of intergenerational issues and high conflict dynamics (in couples and families.)
cross-cultural challenges / identity
My personal journey and clinical experience have served to support many in their journey towards making a cross-cultural relationship work, and/or in establishing themselves in a new cultural/national/social environment.
If you wish to give yourself (or your cross-cultural family) a best shot towards cross-culturally oriented goals come see me for a consultation to find out more about what may be considered and planned.
