My areas of expertise are eating disorders, disordered eating, body image, relationship counseling (Gottman trained - Gottman.com) substance abuse, adjustment disorders, and stress management. Being a specialist in eating disorders allows me the extensive experience to serve clients with most mental illnesses, such as mood and anxiety disorders, relational and abuse (sexual, physical, emotional ) issues and many more challenges that are often underlying the manifested eating disordered diagnosis.

What do you love most about your job?

My work is my passion and for that I am quite fortunate. This profession is what I was gifted to do. It is my life's calling and the best part of it is watching my clients/patients make changes that allow them to live life with newfound tools to manage the obstacles have been standing in their way of a peaceful existence. Watching them transform in front of my eyes is probably the most delightful and intrinsically rewarding aspect of my work.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I decided to start a business of my own because I determined it was best so I could work more dillignetly for my patients. I wasn't interested in being held back by the politics of large corporations that interfere with quality patient care. Private practice is more challenging and far more rewarding as I am able to customize my approach to each of my patients' individual needs.

Why should our clients choose you?

I take the time to listen, understand and genuinely care. I treat each client as a unique individual; by using other assessment tools, I also customize each client's treatment to their specific needs, lifestyle and circumstances rather than a textbook outline; my clients know I am authentic and empathetic; and I provide a safe, comfortable, homey, non-judgmental environment for them.

My work stands out from all the rest because of my innate ability to understand others at a much deeper level. I am unlike the traditional therapist who simply sits and listens without the offer of feedback. I take a proactive approach to healing and recovery and respectfully confront & guide my clients toward growth and a fulfilling lifestyle.

I am proud to say that I am a Level 3 Gottman Method Couples Therapy trained psychologist. The Gottman Institute is the only program in the world who has compiled 40 years of research in the field of marriage and relationship counseling. I have been fortunate enough to train under the Gottmans and obtain the skills and tools for my clients to thrive in their relationships. When working with couples, they have the option of using the Gottman Relationship Checkup which will provide them with a 60-70 page analysis of their specific problem areas where, in turn, I am able to produce a treatment plan to meet the couples' specific needs.

This will vary according to the level of experience and training that the therapist holds.

This will depend on where you live, what level of training your therapist has and what they specialise in (whether they are a counsellor, psychotherapist or psychologist) and also how many years of working experience they have.

Your professional therapist will be able to advise you on the full range of therapies available and will be able to help you select the best one to suit your needs. They will also be able to answer any questions you may have. Use Bark to get free quotes and find a trusted therapist today.

You need to devote some time to finding the right therapist as the connection you have with your therapist is essential. You need someone who you can trust, someone you feel comfortable talking to about difficult subjects and intimate secrets, someone who will be a partner in your recovery. Therapy will not be effective unless you have this bond, so take some time in the beginning to find the right person.

It is worth talking to a few potential therapists and asking questions. Therapists also have special areas of focus, such as depression or eating disorders. For some issues, such as trauma or PTSD, seeing a specialist is absolutely essential.

Everyone’s treatment is different. How long your therapy lasts depends on many factors.

You may be offered a single session of counselling, a short course of sessions over a few weeks or months or a longer course that lasts for several months or years.

It can take a number of sessions before you start to see progress but you should gradually start to feel better with the help and support of your trusted Bark therapist.

Professional counsellor training takes three to five years and can be a diploma or degree level. Qualification requires a minimum number of client hours acquired through a work placement.

You may also want to ask for testimonials of their recent work. You could also look at their profile page on Bark and Bark can show you reviews from past customers who have used their therapy.

Therapy has repeatedly and consistently helped patients with a whole host of issues. It can help with mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety or an eating disorder. Or it can help with an upsetting physical health condition such as infertility, a difficult life event such as a bereavement or a relationship breakdown. It can also be used to tackle difficult emotions such as low self-esteem, anger or sexual identity issues. Therapists also offer couples therapy. Therapists can also help with anxiety issues deriving from the coronavirus.

Absolutely! Many therapists offer sessions over the phone or through an online video chat platform, so you can have a session from the comfort of your own home - all you need is a strong internet connection and you're good to go.
