Our Team

We are a team of dedicated professionals who work diligently on getting you the help that you need and deserve.

Unlike other psychologists and psychotherapists, we do more than just alleviate the "symptoms" of your issues; we explore the underlying reasons for your particular struggles which allows for a more comprehensive understanding and longer-lasting change.

If you are finally ready to deal with the underlying issues; willing to face the painful experiences, memories and feelings that you have been avoiding; if you’re not looking for a band-aid solution and you understand that ‘real’ change takes time, dedication and commitment; if you are ready for a therapy process that is honest, transparent and challenging; and you want life-long changes, we can help.

If you’re looking for help that works, for the long-term, then you’re in the right place! We go beyond just “managing symptoms” and offer strategies to heal from the root and develop the skills for lasting change.
