My speciality is helping women, children and families. I utilize Narrative Therapy, Art Therapy and EMDR, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing with my adult clients. EMDR therapy is an extensively researched, effective psychotherapy method proven to help people recover from trauma and other distressing life experiences, including PTSD, anxiety, depression, and panic disorders.

Neurodiv-ergence

With children I use play therapy and art therapy as children tend to express themselves through play and art rather than words. Play and art help them manage their anxiety, depression and neurodivergence.
