Is there a tug inside you, aching for your life to be different or better? Conflict between your inner voice, that whispers its wisdom, and influential norms that impress you with what you “should” do? You may be questioning your sense of belonging in this world. Worries of whether you’re good/smart/capable enough. Existential concerns of whether you are doing yourself, or your spirit, justice. You may wish to free yourself from patterns learned in childhood, or the professional culture you now find yourself a part of. At heart, you wish to experience a peaceful sense of self, joyful relationships, and meaningful work.

Existence can be a struggle, especially for folks holding identities marginalized by the dominant forces in this society. In all the joyful, unnerving, enraging moments, with their coexisting complexities, we sometimes need a place to unpack our experiences. I hope to cultivate space to lay down this baggage and examine, deconstruct and make choices of how we relate to the stories we carry, to each other and to ourselves. Through work at community addictions agencies in the GTA over the last nine years, I have supported individuals and families dealing with the effects of substance use through counselling, advocacy, and care.

I provide psychotherapy which is grounded on listening and understanding. There is much for me to hear before I get the full picture of what is going on in your life, and lots to discover for you and me together before the time comes for my expert advice. My main discovery of the last decade is that here, in North America, people can come to many therapists, for many times and yet not become ready ever to say openly what is the matter. It is why I know my clients need time to assume that I am really on their side. To figure out, bit by bit, what the possible advice or solution can be and then help you to do that we decide to do, I have my basic training in client-centered psychotherapy (“by Carl Rogers”), and I am a very, very orthodox Rogerian therapist. In addition, I have studied cognitive-behavioral therapy, dialectic-behavioral therapy, music psychotherapy and non-directive child play psychotherapy. I will apply in your situation that which matches your particular needs. Also, I realized that some ideas of psychoanalysis, Adlerian psychotherapy, Existential therapy and Logotherapy can be helpful as well.

I work with people facing personal or circumstantial restrictions. I consider that human beings have the potential to create positive impact and to be proactive in every stage and life situation. I believe people make the best decisions that they can, with the resources they can access. I believe that when the mind and emotions are in harmony, people gain access to the best versions of themselves. My practice provides a space to reflect on daily life challenges and helps to overcome those through self-exploration, self-awareness and consciousness that allows people to break old patterns and move forward.

I believe we are all capable of improving our lives but many of us become "stuck" in the process due to self doubt, insecurity, lack of self esteem, past and/or present trauma, losses, etc. My approach is to work together to find the most appropriate solutions for these issues, or find comfort and acceptance with the challenges of life. With broader perspectives, or an alternative life choice, we increase our general well-being. I believe in practical solutions and appropriate perspectives, allowing all of us a better sense of comfort and competency in everyday life.

Do you feel isolated due to chronic pain or illness? I personally understand as a disabled woman and therapist. The isolation many have felt in 2020 has been really challenging especially those with chronic pain/illness. Maybe you are struggling with big life decisions like other-hood instead of motherhood or something else completely. Maybe you define your self-worth by how many people love you, by how you look or by what you do - yet you feel like you're never enough. You thrive on drama even though it treats you like a yo-yo. You do not believe your body is working for you, or maybe you yearn for connection but run from it.

Any of us may become scared or frustrated by events in our lives. Sometimes parts of our lives just don't seem to be working out. We may become unhappy and come to an impasse. It is inevitable that we come face to face with a crisis of illness or loss. Some may have experienced a relationship breakdown or disturbing dreams and memories. Any one of these can make life seem overwhelming. Even when we find the courage to admit what's happening, those closest to us are not equipped to help us. At these times it is often helpful to talk with a therapist

I work from a model of health, balance and empathy by bringing into awareness the places where we get stuck and our unique ways of getting there. You know best when your patterns of coping are no longer working. A therapist's job is to support you in creating positive shifts in your life. This support may sometimes feel frustrating, especially when our familiar patterns of functioning are being challenged. I incorporate art, humour and paradox in sessions allowing for a creative, spontaneous exploration of your needs, contradictions and feelings and by providing a safe space where new possibilities and hope are possible.

It’s no small thing to begin the inward journey of addressing the issues that keep you stuck. Old patterns, loss of purpose, trauma, relationship issues – some of the pervading challenges of our time. Dealing with any of this can feel overwhelming and isolating but we’re not meant to do it on our own. In order to thrive we need connection. We need to be seen and feel accepted and we need to express our authentic selves. This is at the core of the counselling I provide.
