I understand first-hand what it's like to feel anxious, depressed, lost, confused & even stuck. To wonder what the point of it all is. To feel like you're moving backwards or to simply feel nothing at all. If you are feeling like you don't know how to move past this place, just know you don't have to do this alone, I can support you here. I approach healing & growth holistically, combining numerous approaches: Such as, emotion-centred talk therapy with experiential techniques, including mindfulness & body practices. Together we can explore your emotional landscape, looking at your past & present, as well as your family system.

We all struggle at times. Whether it is a low mood that lingers too long, or anxiety that inhibits your life. Feeling like a failure, a bad parent, or like you just do not feel at home in your skin can start to feel like it poisons everything. Confidence dwindles, emotions feel too unpredictable, or stress seems to get under your skin more than it used to. You may be finding that your close relationships are more stressful than they used to be. Life may feel like it’s getting smaller and smaller. You know something has to change. It is time to reach out for help.

I work with clients who want to find relief from their struggles with the following: depression, anxiety, anger, grief and loss, worthlessness, despair, disordered eating, life/work transitions, addiction (substances, pornography and gambling), and the negative impact of sexism, racism, homophobia, transphobia, and poverty. Often in the beginning, people come in feeling overwhelmed and frustrated and may be clearer initially of what isn't working for them or what they no longer want in their life. I believe these feelings are a resource to reveal what you do want in your life, what's important to you, your values, hopes, dreams and commitments.

I understand the difficulty of reaching out to a complete stranger to share your most personal issues. But I believe in my work and know that counselling can be incredibly effective at creating positive change and growth. With the right counsellor, we can better understand our own patterns and behaviours and how they impact our daily lives and relationships. In my practice, I use evidence-based approaches that I believe will best suit each individual client. More importantly, my clients tell me that I quickly earn their trust, making them feel heard, validated, and safe.

I offer a free 30 minute initial consultation to meet in person, to answer any questions you may have, and to get a sense of what our work together may look like. I see individuals who are feeling anxious, depressed, stressed, depleted, and empty. I also see folks experiencing life transition or simply cultivating personal growth. You do not have to be in crisis to come see me. I believe in the power of having a safe, contained, confidential, and non-judgmental space. Having this is beneficial to everyone.
