I specialize in working with adolescents and adults with depression , anxiety and low quality of life.
Do you feel STUCK? When we feel stuck we start to question our life’s purpose and often start to doubt past and future decisions. Feeling stuck can often lead to confusion, hopelessness, fear, paralysis and lack of motivation. These experiences can generally cause anxiety, panic, depression and generally a low quality of life. Although these feelings can be incredibly painful and may lead you to feel helpless, it’s important to remind yourself that with the right support, you can change your life.

These include: depression , anxiety, addiction, loss of identity, grief, spiritual and existential crisis, low self worth, relationships, etc.
My therapeutic approach is Holistic and an integration of therapeutic theories. I work with all the aspects that makes us human beings. We live in a society that traps us in our minds, disconnecting us from rest of ourselves (body, heart, soul, intuition). I help with processing emotions, re-wiring the brain, healing the inner child, integration work, remembering how to listen to your body and its wisdom, connecting to your heart and finding the truth of who you are, and reconnecting with your spirit, which is your internal light source and the only tool that will help you fill the existential void we all struggle with.

I also work with individuals struggling with anxiety, depression , burnout and life transitions related to work and school.
While recovery is challenging, one of my greatest passions as a counsellor is helping clients develop tools and gain insight so that they no longer lean on disordered eating behaviours. My approach is compassionate and collaborative. Everyone's journey is different, and so I tailor my work to each individual to help you reach your recovery goals. Having worked as a therapist at multiple eating disorder treatment programs (including treating ARFID), I apply this expertise into my work. I also incorporate body liberation and Health at Every Size in working with clients.

Depression Counsellors
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
