You might find yourself facing moments of fear, doubt, and insecurity while pursuing a fulfilling life. It is my passion to support you through your unique challenges, whether they are rooted in anxiety, mood swings, or the effects of being raised by a narcissistic parent. I believe that there is a wealth of resilience and untapped potential within you to take you toward inner freedom.
Cultural sensitivity forms the foundation of my practice. I deeply honour and respect the unique backgrounds, beliefs, and experiences that shape every person’s narrative. I primarily employ the psychodynamic framework, integrating a trauma-informed approach and utilizing techniques from ACT, DBT, and mindfulness.
I have experience in community-based mental health services for LGBTIQA+ groups and immigrants. Together, we will create a safe space for exploring your thoughts, emotions, and aspirations. If you want to discuss whether we might be a good fit or if you have any questions at all, I’m happy to provide a free consult.
