Joe has been wonderful and we’ve worked through a lot of my everyday challenges with depression and anxiety. He’s cheerful, energetic and brings so much optimism and open-mindedness to our sessions. His approach is also academic so it helps to contextualise mental health issues within various CBT models, eg figuring out my zone of efficacy and how to work within that. Thanks for all your help Joe!

In addition to this, I possess an extensive background in early brain development consulting; closed head and traumatic brain injury; developmental counseling; couples, family and life-stage counseling and all issues pertaining to human lifespan identity.

My approach to counseling is client centered; empathetic; non-judgmental; and solution focused aligned with your personal priorities and goals. My client’s drive the direction of treatment and decide when they have reached a level of satisfaction to discontinue therapy. My door is always open for brief, intermediate or long-term depth work. I can't wait to meet you!
About online counseling
Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $60 to $90 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.
