With an ongoing commitment to academic scholarship and extensive clinical experience I provide compassionate, client-centred evidence-based psychological care through tailored consultation, psychotherapy and psychoanalysis. I maintain a general practice that focuses on helping people find lasting relief from a wide range of problems and concerns, from serious psychiatric and psychological conditions that require extensive treatment, to less severe but still significant personal and interpersonal difficulties that create discomfort and limit the quality of one’s life.

In addition, I am recognized for my expertise in the treatment of severe complex psychological trauma, personality disorders, and psychosomatic disorders.
