There are many paths to change. It's my goal to help you find which.

My approach is mindfulness-centred, and works with thoughts, feelings, behaviours, and the physical body, moving you towards transformation.

 

I have an empathic, calm, and non-judgmental nature that can help you feel safe, and support our working relationship. Research has demonstrated that this working relationship connection is imperative for effective therapy.

Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.
