Accepting NEW clients. I believe we all need a safe non-judgmental space to explore, learn, and grow as humans. You may be struggling with life changes, symptoms related to anxiety, relationship issues, difficulty managing emotions, loss of a loved one or pet, addictions, or simply feeling unmotivated. I am passionate about supporting individuals find a new direction, learn coping strategies, identify their strengths, and become resilient to navigate their world. Reach out today for a free 15-minute consult.
I support clients in rediscovering their values to potentially live a more authentic life, while addressing the need to avoid, escape, or use defense mechanisms. This may include using breathing exercises, mindfulness, grounding, wellness strategies, addressing basic needs (e.g., sleep, eating, balance), and fine-tuning current coping strategies.
I work with individuals children (8+), teens, and adults. If you feel I would be a good fit, feel free to reach out for a free 15-minute consult. Please note all session fees are $180 (no HST), sliding scale available.

Clients may see a gradual lifting of symptoms related to anxiety, depression, or trauma related symptoms related to their relationships, family, or workplace. Early sessions will be focused on developing a therapeutic rapport and diving deep into the primary issues the client is willing to discuss.

I often use a mixture of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT) within a motivational interviewing/stages of change framework. My hope is for client's to have their voice heard and give them an opportunity to remove their mask. While they move forward with making changes that allow the client to live more authentically. Thank you.
