Clinical Psychologist & Writer

Welcome to my site! Here I bring together my professional training, experience and passion in both psychology and the art of writing.

As a clinical psychologist, I use empirically validated approaches like Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) to help clients live rich and meaningful lives. In my private practice, I work in a partnership with clients to address a wide variety of problems, from work-related stress to chronic and enduring mental health issues.  I also help clients identify what’s truly important to them, and how to live in better accordance with these values to create a more rich and meaningful life.

My love of writing can also be found here. In addition to clinically-focused articles, I enjoy writing about strong personal brands and interesting personalities, exploring what makes them unique, compelling, relevant and differentiated.
