About

You cannot do it alone and no one can do it for you" P.L. You may have noticed that your mood fluctuates between feeling anxious and/or depressed. And you don't know how to navigate or interrupt this cycle. Life is nudging you towards seeking support because at times holding it all by yourself feels like too much. In therapy with me, you will feel heard, and understood. You will learn what is overwhelming your internal system (thoughts, feelings and experiences in the body) and be able to move towards regulation, ease and balance. I bring a sense of curiosity and compassion and empower you to lead with courage and confidence.
My specialty is helping people with lived experiences of trauma, sexual abuse, anxiety, depression, feelings of rejection, and low- self esteem. I utilize therapeutic approaches that integrate the body (i.e. somatic approaches) the mind (trauma-focused cognitive behavioural therapy; and the soul (mindfulness and compassion practices in human suffering).
I believe that all humans are resilient, and part of that means that it's okay to ask for support, and guidance when in doubt, or in crisis. I am curious, compassionate and committed to accompany you towards the life that you want to live. I wholeheartedly believe you are worthy of peace, and joy.
