ABOUT me

I passionately believe that everyone should have access to counselling services. Finances should not limit what is available to you when it comes to your mental health. This is something I am extremely passionate about, and my entire practice is reflected around ensuring that mental health progress is possible, regardless of financial means. I think this is reflective of a larger motive: I love my job. I am not in this work for the money, I am in it because I absolutely adore working alongside individuals to see the positive changes in their lives, changes that together we've worked hard for them to accomplish. In my work I often feel inspired and profoundly proud of my clients.
