Individual approach

I believe that each person’s experience is unique so I will often draw upon a number of therapeutic models to tailor each individual package of treatment. This allows me to be flexible and adaptive to your needs, although I base all of my practice in a warm, open, non-judgmental and compassionate therapeutic relationship.
