Looking for help when you are in distress can be a very puzzling and lonely time. I have had the profound privilege to journey alongside people from all walks of life who are suffering and are in need of the kind of support that encourages and helps them build a life worth living. I provide psychological assessment, consultation, and treatment to children, adolescents, and adults struggling with a variety of difficulties. I treat depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, complex trauma, serious and persistent mental illnesses, ADHD, learning difficulties, problematic eating and personality disorders.
Specialties: parent support; complex trauma; intimate relationship struggles; emotion dysregulation; racial identity; depression; anxiety.
I have been trained in several treatment modalities, which allows me to provide an individualized treatment plan. I have been trained in psychodynamic/relational methods, emotion-focused therapy, attachment-informed methods, mindfulness-based interventions, dialectical behaviour therapy, family systems theory, and cognitive behavioural therapy.
