“The web of our life is of a mingled yarn, good and ill together” - William Shakespeare.

Having worked in medical and oncology social work for many years, I have helped individuals, couples and families make sense of and cope with that “mingled yarn” of life, particularly helping those dealing with chronic illnesses, such as cancer. The “good and ill” are part of our journey and I am continually impressed by the resilience that people bring. My purpose as a therapist is to support that resilience and help clients chart their own course of life.

I am trained in Cognitive Behavioral therapy which uses a practical approach to help with issues of depression and anxiety. Whether clients are dealing with chronic illness or not, using a strength perspective, we will work together to challenge unhealthy attitudes, beliefs, thoughts and emotions and improve daily functioning and quality of life.
