Professional Philosophy/Information

I have a particular interest in attachment related issues and the effects of short or long term trauma across generations.

I specialize in individual psychodynamic psychotherapy that allows for a deeper exploration of more complex  issues.

As a psychologist, I work cognitively with individuals that attend therapy on a short-term basis and psychodynamically with those who require short or long-term psychotherapy. This combination of approaches assists people to recover from the effects of single overwhelming events and/or the culminating effects of trauma, anxiety, depression, addiction, stress and anger management, eating disorders, personality disorders and more.  The cognitive therapy is more structured and the psychodynamic therapy is less so, and is more about talking through issues in order to resolve emotional distress.
