About

Stressful situations can eat away at our ability to cope and function, or we can get stuck in unhelpful patterns of thinking, behaving, and relating to others that interfere with our living a meaningful life. It can be scary to think about making changes. I will take time to listen and understand your situation so we can identify and move towards your goals. Together, we can learn how you respond to stressful situations and relationships, and find new ways of coping to build a life worth living. I believe everyone has the capacity to heal and grow: my job is to create a space where you are empowered and supported in this journey.
My training focused on treatment and assessment of individuals experiencing difficulties with mood, anxiety, trauma, stress, interpersonal problems, unexplained somatic symptoms, emotion regulation, panic, substance use, and other emotional and personality difficulties. I also have unique and extensive experience treating insomnia and sleep problems.
I am trained in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Short-Term Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. I take an integrative approach to create a personalized plan that best meets your needs. I am honored to work with all individuals and strive to create an open space where we can attend to the intersecting identities you hold.
