She approaches therapy as a co-creative space, inviting clients to explore their stories, goals, thoughts, and emotions through various modalities, including talk, storytelling and play. She believes deeply in a strengths-based approach, and endeavors to create a safe and open space for individuals with neuro- and all other types of diversity.
