I have over 10 years experience providing psychotherapy services from a empowerment /strength perspective framework. My passion is helping individuals, couples, young adults and families in distress reach their highest level of functioning and potential in life; to find their unique voices. As well as encourage the building of positive relationships.

She is easy to talk to, kinda feels like I’m chatting with a girlfriend at times.
Lilly is an incredibly active listener. She understands my concerns and has provided me with skills, techniques and reminders to help me feel confident. I feel incredibly supported after my sessions with Lilly.
Lilly is such an amazing therapist. She really is one of the great ones that I was able to open up to and have exciting conversations with.
