Life can be weird and scary but also pretty okay. We all struggle in so many different ways, it can seem daunting. There's some comfort in knowing that most struggles are figureoutable; with help, we can make some sense of our obstacles and grow from them. My hope is that I can help you navigate your struggle, be it anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, perfectionism, or relationship concerns. My goal is to provide a warm, supportive, light environment for my clients, often using therapeutic strategies while searching for the humour in our struggles.

I take a cognitive-behavioural and self-compassionate approach to therapy, while also employing aspects of self-acceptance and mindfulness. I can help guide you toward understanding unhelpful thought patterns, sitting with difficult feelings, and finding new ways of engaging with everyday life.

I hold an MA in Counselling Psychology with thesis research into self-compassion for those with social anxiety disorder. I have previous counselling experience at the University of Ottawa and Carleton University, working with students with a wide variety of concerns. I have also spent time at Hospice Care Ottawa with individuals experiencing grief and loss.
