About

Hello and welcome! Do you find it easier being kind to others than yourself? You're not alone. A lot of us experience a lack of self-kindness. Mindful self-compassion teaches us to treat ourselves with the same care and understanding we would have for a friend having a difficult time. A lack of self-compassion can show up as perfectionism, constantly striving to be better. Even if we achieve our high standards, we feel let down. This can lead to the feelings of low self-esteem and self-worth often experienced by high achievers. Does this sound familiar? If so, it’s possible to change these patterns if you're ready.
My therapeutic presence is warm, affirming, and empathetic. My approach to therapy is gentle, supportive, and integrative. I use a combination of CBT, dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) and mindful self-compassion techniques. I believe that people are resilient and that it takes courage to move forward. My goal is to restore hope and promote growth.
I love this quote by Jann Arden. “My favourite people in the world, my dearest friends, all rattle when you give them a shake. They have little pieces that have broken off inside of them that are a constant reminder to them, and me, of how far they’ve come and how much they’ve learned, and what they have survived.” I'm looking forward to speaking with you.
