Life can be full of stress, with some days being more overwhelming than others. It can be difficult to look inwards and realize that the skills and behaviours we have been using to cope with stress are not as effective as they used to be. Through this inward reflection, you have recognized that something needs to change and I congratulate you on doing so. This recognition can come with uncertainty about how to develop different ways to overcome the challenges that life presents us. Together we will navigate difficulties with negative emotions, disruptive behaviours, or family conflict and work towards making a positive change!

I work with men, women, and youth who have been victims of domestic violence, intimate-partner violence, childhood abuse (such as sexual, verbal, and emotional), bullying, and similar events. My approach is based on the Narrative and Psychodynamic models, while tailored to the needs and strengths of the person. Part of my work includes addictions counselling and suicide intervention. I have studied and worked in Canada, Latin America, and the Middle East, which has strengthened my passion for understanding the social construction of our identities and the interaction among mental illness, violence, and addictive behaviours.

I see clients in my practice for several reasons. Sometimes they are facing something especially hard, and sometimes they have not felt quite right for a while. Sometimes they are feeling anxious, or depressed, or they are struggling in a relationship or with work. Sometimes, too, people come in because they are looking for support in reaching new heights and expressing the potential that they feel they have, but struggle to see manifest. I work with many tools and strategies that are evidence-based, meaning that research has found them effective in helping people learn what to do to feel better in a difficult moment.

On the outside life seems good, and you keep telling yourself that you should be happy, but you just don’t feel like yourself. You’re overwhelmed, stressed and anxious, and no matter what you do, you feel sad and guilty because it seems like you just keep letting other people down. You feel unworthy, inadequate, and not good enough, and you wish you had more control over your emotions.
