Making Peace

 

I am a clinical psychologist in private practice, and I work each day to help adults make peace with themselves and with others. I trained in the US in the early 2000s, and since then, have worked with clients in both public and private settings in Michigan, Singapore and New Zealand.

 

My specialties include:

  • Trauma
  • Sexual Abuse
  • Migrant Issues
  • Career Challenges
  • Grief, Anxiety

 

Counselling/Therapy Services

I provide both private and ACC-funded treatment, helping people cope with traumatic brain injuries, chronic pain, childhood abuse or neglect, sexual abuse trauma and the effects of family violence.

Some clients come to me privately for “problems of living”, including grief and bereavement, health challenges, relationship problems and work-related stress. Others seek help for anxiety and depression, or for more serious mental health difficulties, including bipolar disorder and borderline personality disorder.

I also apply my skills in helping people sifting through complicated issues in the domain of wealth counselling. In this role, I provide expert coaching and insight-oriented therapy to high net-worth individuals and C-suite executives.

 

Counselling/Therapy Approach

While trained extensively in a number of modalities including CBT, I currently work primarily using methods of psychodynamic psychotherapy. I frequently also employ somatic experiencing, systemic therapy and other modalities. What this means essentially, is that we work hard in session to understand and decode the hidden language of emotions, and also to understand the relational dynamics that affect us all, so that comfort and change comes more easily in real life.

 

Background and Experience

Over 10 years experience working in a number of settlings including a large hospital and in private practice.
