Profile
“The reward of witnessing a person accomplish their goals and make progress in their life is what I consider to be the ultimate job satisfaction.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
While studying psychology as an undergraduate, I knew that becoming a therapist was in my future. After completing my master’s, I went on to postgraduate training in psychoanalytic psychotherapy to further learn and understand the unconscious mind. I have been in hospital healthcare for over 20 years but my true passion is providing psychotherapy to individuals and couples. The reward of witnessing a person accomplish their goals and make progress in their life is what I consider to be the ultimate job satisfaction.
What should someone know about working with you?
The psychotherapy I practice facilitates a process where clients can increase capacity for self-reflection and facilitate a greater awareness of their inner thoughts and feelings. Increased awareness typically puts one in better control of these thoughts and feelings. Once in control, the client no longer needs to turn to repetitive behaviors to rid themselves of painful and unbearable states. Psychotherapy is a process of self-discovery where people can learn and grow at any age.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
At a time when therapy is needed more than ever, I am very excited about the opportunity of teletherapy and the accessibility it provides. Moving toward telehealth can provide the opportunity for more people to get the help they need. Telehealth has allowed for increased access to mental health care and I have been able to reach and treat clients who otherwise would not have had access to this opportunity. I’m hopeful that this trend will continue and that people will take full advantage.
