About

When you first come in to therapy, you may be feeling depressed, ashamed, deadened, anxious or frozen. You may believe your problems are "too much" to share with someone else, or that somehow you "should" be able to be "self-sufficient". I will listen to you, assist you in accepting yourself and all your emotions, respectfully challenge you where you need another perspective, and offer you curiosity and connection where you feel deadened or stuck. If your goal is to gain more ease, flow and comfort in relating to yourself and others, I can help.
I am an empathic, experiential therapist. For over 9 years, I have provided therapy to hundreds of clients in emotional and physical pain informed by Mindfulness, Emotion-Focused Therapy, Gestalt Therapy, Somatic Experiencing, Narrative Therapy, and advanced certification in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.
With me, therapy is an opportunity to move through old issues, understand relationships, express creativity, decrease generalized fear and mistrust, and learn to discover new life. Please reach out to me if you are tired of feeling alone with your worries, "stuck patterns", insecurities and relationship difficulties.
