About

I work with adults who are seeking to better cope with life's challenges and looking for support with their self-growth. You may be experiencing symptoms of anxiety or depression, have a low sense of self-worth, want to more effectively manage stress, or identify as being "highly sensitive". I view therapy as an opportunity to uncover and resolve self-limiting beliefs in a safe, supportive and collaborative environment. I enjoy helping my clients expand their "toolkits", while developing self-understanding, self-compassion, and connection to their own values, strengths, and wisdom. I also provide support to other therapists.
Mental and physical health challenges can be an opportunity to connect to deeper meaning in our lives. In addition to my knowledge and experience with CBT, I facilitate clients' understanding of the "parts" of their own system and how they interact using IFS. I also use applied mindfulness strategies, including mindful self-compassion and guided practices.
I am a trained naturopathic doctor (currently inactive) in practice for over 20 years. My holistic focus includes mental, emotional, physical and spiritual well-being. Optimizing sleep, nutrition, and physical health are some of the supports I have provided in a naturopathic capacity.
