Roya is absolutely awesome!! She's with me every step of the way and I can't thank her enough. Roya gives me the support I've needed for a very long time.
I felt I was expressive with my thoughts and emotions in general, but the sessions with Roya has been eye opening in terms of releasing these feelings.
She is great about bringing my thoughts back to what my body is feeling and I need that. She is always empathetic.
Our approach to therapy
We firmly believe that we all have the potential to heal and grow regardless of our previous history and current circumstances. Our hope is to create a safe space in which you can have a look at your life from a new perspective, appreciate your strengths, heal your wounds, and envision your desired future.
We have learned through the years that therapy is an art and there is certainly no one size that fits all when it comes to therapy. That is why we always tailor our training and experience to make sure our journey together is most helpful to you and your unique circumstances.
I am an avid learner and have had the privilege to be trained with notable teachers in the counselling field. I am forever grateful for their wisdom.
