Areas I Work With
I have spent most of my personal life travelling around the world and living in many different places. This gave me the opportunity to educate myself on how to be a culturally sensitive psychotherapist and to work with people from various backgrounds.
The areas I work with are relationship issues, marriage & family issues, anxiety, guilt, shame, depression, loss and attachment issues, bereavement, trauma, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), physical and emotional abuse, domestic violence, phobias, anger management, work-related issues such as stress or burnout, bullying, and parenting challenges.
I genuinely believe that relationships we build throughout our life are fundamental to our being. It includes family and romantic relationships, friendships, work and more. I have extensive experience working with relationship issues such as separation, divorce, affairs, communication problems and psychosexual difficulties.
The modern world we live in may bring some difficulties such as burn out, work pressures, change, health issues, responsibilities, or the unknown future, you may be feeling stuck on edge, panic, anxious and/or stressed. Together we can work to find ways for you to feel grounded and look for helpful coping strategies you can use at times of anxiety and pressure.
03. Loss and Bereavement
Losing a loved one, a pet, somewhere you belonged, self-esteem, or a part of your identity can be challenging. We can work together to look at these areas when you are going through the feeling of loss.
Significant life changes may bring difficult emotions to the surface: loneliness, abandonment, anxiety, worry, anger and more. I have extensive experience of working with individuals, couples and families who have been in these transitional periods and helped them to find adaptations in their journey.
Life can be stressful at times, which can lead to depression. I work with clients who want to find motivation, identify triggers, and understand the parts of them that feel depressed, and develop healthy coping mechanisms for dealing with life challenges.
I had the opportunity to help clients who had endured trauma, domestic violence, sexual, physical, and/or emotional abuse while working for organizations that support people from all different backgrounds. I place a high value on creating a secure therapeutic environment and can assist clients in these areas.
