Reaching out for support is a courageous and powerful step but it can be daunting to try and find the right Therapist to suit your needs. I am invested in walking alongside you as you get on your journey of healing and growth. Through an evidence-based, trauma-informed, anti-oppressive, collaborative and empathic approach, I will explore with you your need for change. I am a multilingual Psychotherapist with 18 years of experience and have had the privilege to work with individuals, children, youth and families of various backgrounds and ethnicities and diverse presenting issues.
My specialty is working with individuals who may be struggling with attachment issues, trauma, anxiety, stress and when the reason for the pain, fear, panic, worry is not understood. We'll explore connections between the past and present, work towards lasting change by providing you corrective emotional experiences and helping you make sense of your story.
I truly believe you are the expert in your own life and have the power to transform present difficulties to strength by facing them compassionately. My role is to support you in developing insight into obstacles that are preventing you from being your authentic self and help you tap into your inner resources to get ahead.
