Psychotherapy

In-person sessions

Face-to-face connection offers a more immersive therapeutic experience. I offer a unique blend of empathetic support and respectful challenge. I’ll listen deeply and help you gain insights, but I’ll also gently challenge beliefs and behaviors, fostering self-awareness and personal growth by addressing contradictions in your thoughts and actions.

remote sessions

Virtual counseling sessions provide the convenience of accessing support from the comfort of your own space, maintaining privacy and flexibility while addressing your mental health and personal growth needs. While it is not quite the same as in-person, virtual counselling has proven to be just as effective.
