Full Bio

As people navigate through their most challenging life moments, I am honoured to provide support and validation, as well as help them build the skills and confidence to relate and function in a way that is aligned with their values. We long to be truly seen, heard, and supported, but struggle to show up to the people in our lives in an unfiltered and authentic state. Through the therapeutic relationship, I aim to help my clients develop the trust in themselves to advocate for themselves and create satisfying relationships, come to terms with painful emotions, and make meaningful choices. I believe the therapeutic relationship can be a pivotal catalyst for profound growth. As a therapist, I am a fellow traveller with my clients as they find their way through life’s complexities.

What You Can Expect When Working With Adriann

I offer a space grounded in warmth, trust, and ease, focusing on your needs with a strength-based, person-centred approach. Feedback from those I’ve worked with often highlight that I’m an easy person to open up to, and that my non-judgmental curiosity helps my clients to explore their most vulnerable thoughts and feelings freely, often leading to significant insights and growth.

In therapy, we’ll focus on the here and now, gently identifying patterns or behaviours that may not serve you well, all while tapping into your inherent strengths and capacities. My style blends serious exploration with the healing power of laughter, balancing depth and light-hearted moments. Together, we’ll explore your experiences, promoting self-awareness and positive change in a supportive partnership.

More About Adriann

Like many, my journey has been one of embracing contrasts. Growing up with a single mom, every day was a lesson in resilience and making the most of what we had. This background has shaped me into who I am: an empathetic partner, a lover of the natural world, and a serial crafter who can’t stick to just one hobby (much to my friends’ amusement).

My path has taught me the value of flexibility, the strength found in vulnerability, and the art of letting go of the need for control—lessons not easily learned but deeply cherished. I am living proof of power of adaptability and finding joy in the unexpected turns of life.

I am a risk taker at heart, whether I’m navigating natural landscapes or exploring the terrain of the inner self. And while my life’s circumstances have demanded toughness, they’ve also instilled a profound appreciation for the simple, unguarded moments of connection and laughter. If my approach seems to resonate with you, I would love to connect for a free consultation so that you can decide if I’m a good fit for you. I look forward to hearing from you.
