Whether it is depression, anxiety, relationship challenges, addictions, grief, or any other concern that may impact mental health negatively, I can help. I take pride in providing a culturally-sensitive environment where my clients can feel safe and be candid. I provide support to my clients by assisting them in fostering problem solving techniques and coping strategies that have the potential to have an immediate positive impact.
I believe that people are resilient, dynamic and have their own strengths which can be the foundation for therapy. My approach is strength-based and incorporates Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART), solution-focused, and cognitive-behavioural therapy. These approaches have been successful in addressing trauma, mood, relationships, addictions and more.
Ultimately I strive to promote a supportive and non-judgemental environment where my clients can feel confident in reaching their goals.

I work with clients who may be struggling with issues such as depression/anxiety, addictions, and trauma. During our initial sessions, we will delve into the issues at hand, and collaborate to create a plan for addressing them in a way that helps you get your life back. Most of my clients see a gradual lifting of symptoms within the first month and sustained improvement thereafter.

I often use Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) in my practice. In your first session, we'll explore what brought you to therapy and decide the most appropriate ways to help you make progress. With ART, we'll look to at ways to help you move past your challenges and possible traumas by incorporating eye movements and creative imagery. Treatment is empowering and can have an immediate impact.
