Counselling/Therapy Services

Developing a professional relationship and understanding of with the people I work with is is really important for me as a psychologist. I take a strengths-based approach to therapy; you are the expert in your life, experiences, and/or family/children.

Together we can identify your best way forward ensuring you feel comfortable with every step of the process.
