I work with individuals and couples who come with a wide range of relationship and personal concerns. These include healing from abuse, loss and death; personal and family transitions; resolving intimacy and sexual concerns; managing stress; recovery from depression and addictions.

I use a range of therapeutic interventions including CBT, narrative therapy, EMDR .

Cultural background, gender, disability and sexual orientation are important concerns in my work
