Our Hart therapist has extensive experience working as a psychologist across clinical and forensic settings. These settings include working with adolescents, adults and couples from diverse cultural backgrounds, and facilitating group therapy. She helps individuals and couples recognize their strength to overcome adversity and improve their wellbeing.
This therapist values the richness of the therapeutic relationship, and the importance of developing mutual understanding in a compassionate and carefully considered therapeutic environment, as this provides insight into how past experiences influence present issues. From her years of training and experience, she knows that effective therapy involves trust, openness, and safety, to move beyond the ‘surface’ concerns, and address problems at their deeper roots.
She is dedicated to and especially skilled at working through the complexity of relationship dynamics. Her integrative approach is informed by cognitive, interpersonal, and psychotherapeutic techniques, which support couples in engaging in constructive dialogue and discovering new ways forward. She provides a balance between purposeful exploration, empathic reflection, and careful analysis.
She supports couples with various relationship concerns including: communication difficulties and being stuck in conflict, stressful life transition, loss of connection and intimacy, problem behaviors (including infidelity, gambling and addiction), managing separation and divorce, and issues relating to extended family.
Her sensitivity and attentive listening enable her to appreciate the unique circumstances and personal needs of each individual and couple she works with. This allows her to provide compassionate and meaningful therapy that is focused on sustainable change.
