About

Whether you are suffering from anxiety, depression, post traumatic stress, family concerns, substance use troubles, OCD, intimate relationship issues, grief, problem solving, or trying to navigate the vicissitudes of everyday life, I am here when you are ready to reach out. We will find out what you want to keep, what can be set aside, and what you would like to cultivate. I look forward to meeting all the messy and beautiful parts of you.
I am trained in Narrative Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Mindfulness Based Therapies, Exposure and Response Prevention (for OCD), Couple and Family Therapy. I work with emotion and body awareness to help clients respond, rather than react. The world and others are impossible to control, managing our response leads to deep and lasting change.
Being human means that sometimes we suffer. As a fellow human who has also suffered, I endeavour to reach out and walk alongside others in need of support. I cultivate compassion and connection through evidence based practice. My goal is to meet you where you are at, when you need it most, and collaboratively determine the best way forward.
