my work experience includes working with children, adults and seniors in different settings like child psychiatry, couple & family therapy, mental health and refugees.
I think that we're all on a journey to self discovery and it should be a reasonable goal to accomplish during our lifetime. However, some of us have legitimate reasons to keep putting it off and some of us didn't have enough care and support to place them on the right path to it. With some help, each of us will be able to walk their own journey. I could help you understand your past and how it got you to where you are today, and walk with you to the source of negative feelings and thoughts that may be affecting you, your relationships, studies or work; to help you process them.

Welcome! I know life can be hard. Just when we think things are going right, something happens to shift everything off balance. Even at the best of times, we are dealing with all kinds of stress (ex. money, family, work). This is why I got into counselling; because I truly believe that with 1:1 support you are provided a whole new avenue to explore those feelings, emotions, behaviours, and find practical tools to experience relief. While I counsel adults and couples, I also really enjoying counselling children and youth. I'm accepting new clients, so please reach out!

Within challenge there is opportunity for growth and healing. Any crisis, while intensely difficult, can also put you in touch with your deeper yearnings and surface new strengths and resilience. Without support and guidance though, you can get stuck in painful places. Your life may feel lacking or out-of-control. You may feel overwhelming grief, depression, anxiety & panic. You may struggle to make meaning or be unsure which way to turn. When stress and suffering feel like too much to bear, please reach out for help. We will bring compassionate awareness to your challenges while nurturing your everyday wellbeing and wholeness.

I love my work! For over 20 years I've been helping individuals and couples create a life they love with proven, measurable, effective and fast methods to break through old patterns, get past limiting beliefs, and create possibilities they never knew existed. This isn't therapy like you've seen it on TV or in the movies, it doesn't have to take years. If you're tired of the "same old, same old" you deserve to feel better.

Navigating through the world comes with inherent challenges, and sometimes what we’re seeking for support is more than what our friends or family can provide. My goal is to create a safe, non-judgmental therapeutic space where you can show up as you are, feel seen and heard, and together, we co-create the helpful way forward. My approach is integrative, trauma-informed, and social justice oriented.
