Anyone who is willing to reach out for help with mental health issues is an ideal client for me. The act of taking this first step demonstrates a willingness and courage to face personal challenges head-on and an openness to beginning the process of healing and growing. More specifically, I am open to engaging with adults presenting with a broad array of mental health concerns including anxiety, stress, depression, low motivation, trauma, and struggles relating to identity and life-purpose. I also have intimate knowledge of the mental health issues surrounding disability, chronic illness, and chronic pain.

I have experience in supporting a variety of mental health challenges such as anxiety & depression, with a specific focus in coping with cancer, life threatening illness & chronic illness, caregiver support, grief & bereavement, low self-esteem & abandonment.
It is common for individuals to feel stuck in their suffering. Recurring issues take up space within the mind & body, making it difficult to live in the present & within one’s full potential. I use an integrative, trauma-informed & strengths-based approach to build therapeutic relationships rooted in connection, compassion & empathy to help transform this suffering into deep healing. I use a variety of therapeutic techniques including mindfulness, visualization & relaxation to help clients process their experiences & unresolved trauma & to help regulate their emotions in a healthy way.

Maintaining a sense of balance while dealing with a chronic illness can be challenging. The day-to-day process of keeping your body well can feel like a tiring and overwhelming full-time job, leading to distress, anxiety, depression, and/or burnout. Unlike a job, however, you can't rest and recharge by taking a vacation from taking care of yourself. So what can you do? Counselling can help you find your footing amidst this distress, so that you can get you back to achieving your overall goals in health and in life.

I offer: Deep, non-judgmental and reflective listening, a deep and personal understanding of chronic illness/pain and trauma.
Maybe you feel isolated due to chronic pain or illness. Maybe you believe your body has let you down. I've been there, I know. Perhaps the isolation many have felt in 2021 has been really challenging. Maybe you feel like you live life on the margin of society & have never felt like you fit in. You may be struggling with big life work like healthy relationships, culture, other-hood, gender identity, body image, sexuality or where and how you fit in this community. You may feel unable to give up the cycle of drama even though it leaves you with a regular shame hang over. Because of some of these reasons you're looking for support.

Relationship-building and a strong therapeutic alliance come at the core of the work that I do. To me, it is important to create a space that is welcoming, non-judgmental, and relaxed, so that clients can feel open to share. I find importance in meeting each client where they are at, and with young clients (or young at heart) have been known to use creative formats for engagement such as: games, art, sand tray therapy, music or going on walks. I am able to do work with children, adolescents, and adult clients. I have over a decade of experience working with children/youth and adults, both in a counselling and teaching capacity.

Many of us face times in our lives when we need support to get through difficult periods. I see psychotherapy as a safe space to explore yourself, gain self-insight and understanding, and develop tools and resources to face the ups and downs of life. Since 2011, I have had the chance to work with adults with various needs and challenges. I have supported clients to work through relationship difficulties, repetitive patterns that were no longer serving them, anxiety, depression, painful emotions related to present or past events (including traumas), self-esteem issues, grief and loss, and adjustment to chronic illness.

I appreciate that asking for help and sharing lived experiences are whole-hearted actions. It is a privilege for me to provide individual therapy to adolescents and adults during times of great distress, change, and loss. Clients often describe a loss of meaning and purpose in their lives, overcome by confusing and messy emotions that sabotage their functioning. Some clients are acutely aware of their compromised quality of life whereas others would describe chronic life conditions. My areas of specialization include anxiety, psychological trauma, depression, grief and bereavement, terminal illness, and chronic illness.
