About

I take a holistic approach to counselling and recognize the intersectional nature of people’s lives and identities. Outside of private practice, I have worked and continue to work in public health in an outpatient setting so I have helped support individuals of all ages, stages, and mental health concerns. Specifically though, I love working with women, adolescents (13+), overwhelmed achievers (lawyers, engineers, artists, mothers, doctors, social workers, teachers, aestheticians, business professionals, and so much more), in addition to folks who struggle with anxiety, perfectionism, grief, and managing emotions.
I draw from solution-focused and trauma-informed therapies that integrate people’s values so they can live with purpose and meaning. I also have training in cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT), mindful self-compassion (MSC), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), accelerated resolution therapy (ART), and dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT).
I consider myself "an open book" and genuinely believe in practicing what I preach. I try to bring laughter, lightness, and understanding while gently challenging old beliefs and behaviours that are no longer serving us. I believe in collaborating with people and creating authentic space for healing and growth to occur - even if it's messy at times.
