Does life sometimes feel like it's just too much? Do you find yourself constantly searching for happiness while trying to manage feelings of sadness, shame, anger, overwhelm, etc.? Are you struggling to keep stability in your relationships? I work with clients to get to the bottom of what is stopping them from leading a fulfilling life and effectively coping with life’s ups and downs. I offer a warm and compassionate space for my clients to share their thoughts, feelings, and experiences; to learn to manage their emotions and relationships effectively and with integrity; and to make meaningful and lasting changes.
I specialize in working with people diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder or those struggling with symptoms such as: intense and fast-cycling moods, unstable relationships, suicidality and/or self-harming, unsure sense of self, etc. I have formal training in DBT and extensive experience empowering clients to improve their quality of life.
I recognize that choosing the right therapist to meet your needs can be a stressful or even overwhelming process and that you may be looking for guidance on what to do next. For this reason, I offer a free, no-pressure, 15-minute phone consultation to allow you to get to know me and ask any questions you may have. I am here to help!

I specialize in working with clients who struggle with regulating their emotions. I use Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) to help my clients learn to better understand their triggers, gain the valuable skill of self-validation, and feel empowered to change their behaviour so that they no longer feel shame or guilt about how they handle their feelings.

While I use an eclectic approach tailored to the needs and personality of each of my clients, I am heavily influenced by Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT). DBT is a form of therapy that helps clients better understand their patterns of emotions, thoughts, and behaviours and teaches skills of mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotion regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness.
