Being a student for quite some time in my life, I really developed a passion with working with young adults and students trying to find their own path. I have found that people in general just need some encouragement and support to make lemonade out of life’s lemons and embrace change.


I also believe that we can find meaning in suffering, but sometimes we just need someone to guide us to the answers we already have. Above all, I believe in the resilience of people, in that we all have the innate ability to be the writers of our own stories.

As a counselling student, I enjoy working with all challenges people come across in their lifetime. I have an immense respect for the diversity in language, culture, religion and sexual orientation. A special interest of mine lies within the field of sexuality and sexual/reproductive health and working with couples.
