About me

Vision and Mission

My life’s purpose is to make the world a little happier, a little brighter. I am a healer to the core and I have been this way for as long as I can remember. The reason I chose psychology is because my primary aim is to heal and strengthen the individual. I believe that if we all heal ourselves, the world will take care of itself. For me there is no greater joy in life than being able to help someone heal their pain, overcome their fears, let go of their anger, love themselves, believe in themselves as well as help them find, and navigate, the path on which they can manifest their dreams and their greatness. As a result of this passion, I have had the dedication and the motivation to explore countless philosophies and psychotherapeutic schools of thought so that I can have the best tools, techniques and insights needed to do this. This is the journey that I have dedicated my life to and I hope to be able to help you on your journey.

Experience

I have experience in multiple settings working with a wide range of individuals. At Lentegeur Psychiatric Hospital I worked with adults, teenagers, children, couples and families with an array of difficulties. This included: Depressive Disorders, Anxiety Disorders, Trauma Related Disorders, Autism and Intellectual Disability, Personality Disorders, Addiction, parenting challenging children as well as a lack of healthy coping mechanisms and life skills.

At Worcester Male and Female Correctional Services I worked with adults and teenagers focusing mostly on trauma and adjustment issues as well as personal development. I was also responsible for creating risk profiles of inmates eligible for parole, in order to determine their risk of re-offending. Before going into private practice, I worked at an International Rehabilitation Centre that focuses on substance addictions, process addictions as well as eating disorders. Much of my work included focusing on co-occurring disorders such as Personality, Depressive, Anxiety and Trauma Related Disorders.
