|Bio:||I work with adults and older adults with a range of difficulties, including depression, anxiety, life transitions, grief, adjustment to chronic illnesses, and trauma histories.
My background is working in Older Persons Mental Health, and I have a special interest in working with this population. I am also very interested in resilience and posttraumatic growth, and enjoy incorporating strategies to foster these in therapy.
Types of therapy I use include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing, and Interpersonal Therapy.
