About

****NOW ACCEPTING CLIENTS IN VAUGHAN/MISSISSAUGA AND PHONE/VIDEO**** "I am not what has happened to me; I am what I choose to become" -Carl Jung. If you are stuck in the “I wish things had been different” mode,” and feel like there is little hope for change in your life; therapy provides an avenue to be heard, to grieve, to discover acceptance, and create a new future right now, as we work together to formulate small but consistent steps in the present. I believe that each person is unique and brings individualized strengths and skills to forge new paths in their lives and in their relationships. Together, we can reach your goals.
My strengths are: working with the mind-body connection to address anxiety, depression and self-image in individual therapy; as well as, working with negative communication cycles to promote change in couples therapy. I integrate Cognitive Behaviour Therapy with Emotionally Focused Therapy (Attachment Science) and Mindfulness.
My own journey in mental health has embodied the mind, body, and spirit to both heal and thrive. I provide a safe, and compassionate space so that you can feel heard and supported to move toward the change you seek. If you want to discover whether I can be the right therapist for you, I offer a free 15-minute telephone consultation.
