My goal as a Transpersonal Therapist, is to help you uncover your true potential & lead a life that is worth celebrating. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand & resolve challenges in your life. By applying complementary therapy approaches & techniques, we will unearth long-standing behavior patterns, or negative perceptions, that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling & meaningful life. If you're looking for additional support & guidance through a challenging situation, or just ready to move in a new direction, I look forward to working with you.

We all deserve peace, to feel connection with others, and to feel a sense of trust in ourselves and the world. Stress, anxiety, relationship struggles, depression, trauma, major life changes and family issues are among the challenges that can get in the way of us experiencing life the way we would like to. And we all have ways of coping with those stresses. But what happens when those strategies don’t seem to be working anymore? I bring a compassionate and patient approach to our work together. My approach is rooted in my sincere belief, in our ability to heal. No matter the struggle, there is always hope.

Perhaps you're down or anxious - maybe you're unsure about the future, a relationship, or just feel that you aren't living the life you were meant to lead. It takes great courage to reach out and make a change. Although change can be difficult most people realize that it is often more difficult to try and stay the same. People come to therapy for many reasons but often the heart of the matter is that they want to live their "one wild and precious life" Mary Oliver Whatever your needs may be, I am here to offer support. Therapy is a process of growth and self-discovery, and in my sessions I work gently and compassionately with you.

During my 15 years working in healthcare, I have narrowed my focus to reflect my strength: my ability to enhance and support the mental health and wellness of individuals and families through a multidisciplinary and client-centred approach. This includes using a strengths-based and neurodivergent-friendly lens to practice while applying principles of trauma-informed care. When I am not working, I can often be found biking around the city, exploring various parks and beaches with my two young kids strapped onto the back of my cargo bike!
