I work with individuals and couples from a relational/ gestalt background.
If you are struggling with a particular issue, feeling lost in a relationship; intimate or professional, worrying and lacking the motivation to put ideas/thoughts into action, or just generally feeling stuck, I'm glad you are here. Life is complex and doesn't come with clear and definitive guidelines. No wonder we can feel overwhelmed! Sometimes it can just feel like it too much to manage alone. Working in a therapeutic relationship where you are the focus can help you find ways to learn, grow, and heal.

As a Gestalt Therapist in training and a member of the leadership team at the Gestalt Institute Student Clinic, I see clients referred through the clinic and from the general public.
Hello! My practice is focused on Relational Gestalt . I work with clients in the here and now, while focusing on embodiment, awareness and self-actualization. I see clients from a variety of ethnic backgrounds and help individuals seeking support with addiction, stress, anxiety, trauma, shame and guilt. I've studied a number of spiritual paths over the past 12 years for my own self-growth, personal development, and to broaden my approach to life and others. As an empath and a highly sensitive person, I offer my clients the opportunity to explore their own sense of self and awareness through relational psychotherapy.

Are things feeling like a lot right now? It's tough out there. Whether you're struggling in your relationships, wondering what the heck a boundary is and how to create them, needing ways to cope with a really intense world, or wanting to trace a frustrating pattern and find new ways forward, you deserve support. I work with folks who are feeling stuck or overwhelmed to build resilience and choice. Using a somatic, attachment-based approach, I aim to create a space of care and acceptance for folks to name and feel feelings, map out unhelpful patterns, and practice new ways of navigating life’s challenges.

Are you tired of being stuck? Tired of beating yourself up? Board with the same old strategies that don't work? Are you ready for change? Many people experience times in their lives when they begin to feel overwhelmed and have difficulty coping. Feelings of shame, fear, loneliness, anger and hurt can have us feeling trapped and like we will never be okay. Counselling can often help people to transition to a place of balance, where they are much better able to cope, and not feel as overwhelmed. Not only will they be better able to cope, they can develop strategies that can make their lives more manageable and balanced in the future.

Gestalt Counsellors
Gestalt therapy seeks to integrate the client's behaviors, feelings, and thinking, so that their intentions and actions may be aligned for optimal mental health. The therapist will help the client become more self-aware, to live more in the present, and to assume more responsibility for taking care of themself. Techniques of gestalt therapy include confrontation, dream analysis, and role playing.
