Whether you come individually or as a part of a relationship or family system, the commonality among those who seek therapy is a desire to bridge the gap between current experience and preferred experience. The journey however, is unique.
Maybe you've tried to DIY it in the past and now consider that having the support of a trained professional might make all the difference. Perhaps you are hoping to connect with someone with a similar lived experience. Whatever your particular circumstance is, you are taking the bold steps to be supported along this journey.
I am here to walk alongside you through this often overwhelming and seldomly linear process of therapy. At the very least, I am here to hold space for you to show up in ways that are true to your identity intersectionalities and your experiences ,and listen to your story with empathy.
I see therapy as a space where your voices, identities, experiences, and innate strengths are affirmed and explored. I aim to cultivate a space where you feel safe enough to share your story, engage in honest reflection, and journey on your preferred way of being.
My approach is grounded in my values around authenticity, collaboration, and the therapist-client(s) relationship. I believe clients possess an innate expertise in their personal experiences- my role is to help you recognise and harness these strengths in ways that align with you, your desires, and contexts.
Currently, I do not have any capacity to work with clients who are at high risk. That is, those experiencing recent (in the last 3 months) or current Intimate partner violence and/or domestic violence, current active suicidal ideation/attempts.
