Through short term therapy the goal is to help clients explore their inner dimensions that will assist them in changing certain aspects of their lives.

Through building a therapeutic relationship, I work with my clients to facilitate them to gain coping skills that will assist them through difficult circumstances. I use an integrative therapeutic approach that will be determined by the challenges we are faced with, in order to enable and empower my clients to help them achieve their personal goals. I aim to provide a safe and affirming space where my clients feel comfortable.
