I am a Toronto based psychotherapist with a virtual practice at your fingertips. What you will experience is someone who is relatable, easy to talk to, and eager to listen. I specialize in helping people with childhood developmental trauma; adults who struggle with repeating depressive episodes; procrastination and anxiety; and difficulty coping with stress both at work and in relationships. You can connect to the life you want to live. My treatment approach combines knowledge of how your brain and body work, and through evidence based modalities we work on helping you process and relieve your symptoms, thoughts and emotions.
With over 15 years of experience and specialized training, the most valuable skill I have is the one that recognizes you as the expert in your life. My role is to hear you, provide you with a safe, judgment-free space to explore your thoughts and feelings, and share evidence-informed perspectives and strategies that guide you to achieve your goals.
We all feel disconnected from ourselves and others. Some of my most meaningful moments in therapy came when I was open to accepting support. By being here and aware of what you need, you have already started on the path to healing. You got this!
