Seeking therapy is a very powerful first step to overcoming life’s challenges. I can offer you a safe space for you to open up and share your troubles. Helping you acquire new coping skills and overcome obstacles in your path in a supportive and non-judgmental environment.
Our past life experiences can have a lasting effect on our current situations, leaving us sometimes even feeling hopeless about the future.
As a qualified counsellor, psychotherapist and psychodrama therapist I can facilitate your understanding of yourself and the issues that cause pain. Allowing space to draw on inherent strengths, build tools, heal the wounds, and provide a different way to live.
With the insight and skills you develop in therapy you will be better equipped to move through life without getting stuck on unhealthy patterns, feelings, or relationships.
As an integrative counsellor, I draw from various theoretical approaches, including psychodynamic, humanistic, transactional analysis, gestalt, transpersonal and psychodrama. Believing that each person has their unique path and needs, I adapt the therapy to better help the client at the present.
I have experience with teenagers, young adults, and adults suffering from depression, anxiety, anger management issues, eating disorders, low self-esteem, loneliness, relationship, marital and family issues, and life matters in general.

“Spontaneity operates in the present, here and now; it induces the individual to respond adequately to a new situation or to respond in a new way to an old situation.” Jacob Levy Moreno
I have worked in different therapeutic environments with adolescents, adults and groups with different issues such as: anxiety, loneliness, loss and grief, childhood traumas, eating disorders, anger management, depression, relationship problems and life issues in general.
As an integrative psychotherapist, I combine the relational principles of psychoanalysis, gestalt therapy, psychodrama, transactional analysis, transpersonal and Person-Centred.
I believe that the therapeutic relationship is essential and vital for an effective and transformative therapy.
