The greatest reward is helping clients find what is lovely about themselves, and in so doing, rejuvenating the person to seek out the life they want. I firmly believe all people can recover from even debilitating issues and try to help instill this belief in my client's own recovery.
I use an integrative approach using a number of proven modalities, including ERP, ACT, CBT as well as psychodynamic psychotherapy, humanistic approaches, attachment-based treatment and positive psychology, depending on the individual and their presenting problem.
I specialize in working with people experiencing altered states, psychosis, schizophrenia, voice hearing and bipolar.
Compassionate, educational, encouraging.
