“Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced.” - James Baldwin. Mental illness continues to be a taboo subject in many communities, despite the fact that it is a significant aspect of our overall health and well being. The fear that surrounds addressing mental illness leaves many people feeling silenced and isolated and can lead to physical illness overtime.

Suffering is a part of life. It is something we all have in common, yet can feel so alone and isolated in. It can present in many ways, whether it been through depression, anxiety, anger, and it can impact many areas of our lives such as activities of daily living, our ability to function socially and cognitively, and our adaptability to stress. For some, being resilient in the face of struggle comes naturally whereas for others, this is something we must actively work towards. Through the therapeutic process, I strive to help you to uncover your own resiliency and inner strength to persevere in the face of struggle.

Life is full of demands and responsibilities that can feel overwhelming. Emotions and negative thoughts can interfere with you feeling and performing at your best. You want something to change but untangling these patterns seems too difficult. Mental health doesn’t have to be this hard. When you learn to harness your emotions and thoughts they can begin to work with you and not against you, allowing you to take ownership of your life.
