About

Welcome/Bienvenue, I'm so glad you're here! I primarily work with adolescents and adults in helping them to process and overcome anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, suicidality, grief and loss, trauma, PTSD, and more. My beliefs are rooted in compassion and kindness for all people, animals, and Mother Earth. With a genuine and empathetic spirit, I am passionate about ensuring a safe and secure space where anyone can feel comfortable expressing any emotion, thought, or struggle. I welcome all stories, backgrounds, cultures, ethnicities, genders, sexual orientations, and those who value vulnerability, and self-discovery.
My approach to therapy is grounded in trauma-informed care. In addition, I use counselling theories such as ACT, CBT, CFT, and narrative therapy. Beginning in November 2022, I will be adding EMDR into my practice. I value client empowerment and invite you into the treatment planning process to best meet your needs and goals. This is your journey!
I would be happy to speak with you over a 15-minute phone consultation, to ensure we are a good fit. I look forward to embarking on this journey of healing and well-being together! “Empathy fuels connection”- Brene Brown
