“I will not rescue you, for you are not powerless.
I will not fix you, for you are not broken.
I will not heal you, for I see you in your wholeness.
I will walk with you through the darkness, as you remember your light.”

- A Medicine Woman's Prayer by Sheree Bliss Tilsley


I am a clinical psychologist with over 12 years of experience in working with children, parents (caregivers), adolescents and adults in both private practice and in a psychiatric institution context.

I have found that therapy can touch the corners of our souls, to be on a journey with someone. I believe in the process and not necessarily in the designation (goals or aims) of living. I believe in self-compassion, and that we must have compassion for ourselves to grow and to continue on our journey.
